Abstract

A unique lipopeptide antimycotic, termed cryptocandin, is described from , an endophytic fungus. Cryptocandin, with a molecular mass of 1079 Da, contains equimolar amounts of 3,4-dihydroxyhomotyrosine, 4-hydroxyproline, threonine, glutamine, 3-hydroxy-4-hydroxymethylproline, 4,5-dihydroxyornithine and palmitic acid. Cryptocandin is chemically related to well-known antimycotics, the echinocandins and pneumocandins, which are produced by such fungi as spp. and spp. Cryptocandin has minimal inhibitory concentration values of 0-03-0-07 μg ml against isolates of and Cryptocandin is also active against a number of plant-pathogenic fungi including and
