Antifungal effect and activity spectrum of crude antifungal proteins from hemolymph of larvae of Tenebrio molitor in Korea






Korean Journal of Mycology 23(3): 232-237

Antifungal effect and activity spectrum of crude antifungal proteins from hemolymph of larvae of Tenebrio molitor in Korea

Antifungal protein from the hemolymph of larvae of Tenebrio molitor in Korea was partially purified by C-18 open column chromatography and assayed for the activity spectrum using 3 kinds of yeast and 4 kinds of filamentous fungi. The crude antifungal protein showed static activity for a broad range of fungal species. Weak cidal effects were observed in growing yeast type cells, including Candida and Saccharomyces. The affected cells were changed from ovoid to swollen and spherical form in shape. For filamentous fungi including Aspergillus and Fusarium, the crude antifungal protein affected the spore germination and the hyphal growth but not the viability significantly.
