Abstract

SUMMARY: A strain of inhibited growth of some fungi and induced the formation of spherical cells. The substance responsible was identified as a thermostable protein active between pH values of 4.0 to 7.0. The substance affected fungi from various classes, but was not equally effective with different fungi. Leakage from cells exposed to the substance was demonstrated. The relation of this substance to the lysins of is discussed.
