An anti-fungal peptide designated as lunatusin, with a molecular mass around 7kDa, was purified from the seeds of Chinese lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus L.). The peptide was isolated using a simple protocol consisting of affinity chromatography on Affi-gel blue gel and gel filtration on Superdex 75. Lunatusin exerted an anti-fungal activity toward fungal species such as Fusarium oxysporum, Mycosphaerella arachidicola and Botrytis cinerea, and an antibacterial action on, Bacillus megaterium… CONTINUE READING
