Molecular cloning, structural analysis and modelling of the AcAFP antifungal peptide from Aspergillus clavatus.

Abstract

An abundantly secreted thermostable peptide (designed AcAFP) with a molecular mass of 5777 Da was isolated and purified in a previous work from a local strain of A. clavatus (VR1). Based on the N-terminal amino acid (aa) sequence of the AcAFP peptide, an oligonucleotide probe was derived and allowed the amplification of the encoding cDNA by RT-PCR. This… (More)
