AbstractAn antifungal peptide with a molecular mass of 9412 and an N-terminal sequence exhibiting notable homology to those of lipid transfer proteins was isolated from seeds of the vegetable Brassica campestris. The purification protocol entailed ion exchange chromatography on Q-Sepharose, affinity chromatography on Affi-gel blue gel, ion exchange chromatography by fast protein liquid chromatography (FPLC) on Mono S, and gel filtration by FPLC on a Superdex peptide column. The antifungal peptide was adsorbed on Affi-gel blue gel and Mono S. It inhibited mycelial growth in Fusarium oxysporum and Mycosphaerella arachidicola with an IC50 value of 8.3 mu M and 4.5 mu M, respectively. It exhibited dose-dependent binding to lyso-a-lauroyl phosphatidylcholine. The present findings constitute the first report on a non-specific lipid transfer protein from the seeds of a Brassica species. (c) 2007 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
