Caption: Antifungal agent research. Fluorescent light micrograph showing a fluorescein-tagged peptide bound to the surface of non-germinated asexual spores (conidia, round). These spores have attached themselves along a thread-like hypha of Fusarium moniliforme fungus, also known as Gibberella fujikuroi. Fusarium moniliforme is a plant pathogen that can destroy crops such as rice. This peptide (cecropin-A) comes from the cecropia moth. It causes pores to form in the fungal wall, leading to leakage of cell contents, and death of the fungus.
