Isolation and characterization of viridin, a new 65 kDa antifungal protein from the mould Trichoderma viride.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
A new extracellular antifungal protein with a yield of 10 mg per liter was isolated from the culture medium of the mould Trichoderma viride. The protein, which we named viridin, was purified by carboxymethyl-cellulose cation-exchange chromatography and Superose 12 HR 10/30 high-performance liquid chromatography. Viridin, a basic protein of approximately 65 kDa as determined by SDS-PAGE, inhibits the growth of the cotton pathogen Verticillum dahliae, the IC50 being 6 microM.
