In vitro evaluation of antimicrobial peptides against Fusarium species
Can. J. PlantSci. 89: 739-743. The in vitro activity of five antimicrobial peptides was evaluated againstseveral Fusarium species that affect wheat in Canada. Among the peptides tested (10R, 11R, BMAP-18, MsrA2 and MsrA3) 10R was most effective against conidial germination, whereas MsrA2 showed activity against mycelial growth. Antimicrobial peptides 10R and MsrA2 were identified as potential candidates for engineering resistance against common species causing fusarium head blightin wheat.
