Abstract

Killer activity expressed at pH values ranging from 3.5 to 6.0 was found in the ustilaginaceous yeast-like species, Pseudozyma tsukubaensis. Its killer phenotype was incurable, and extrachromosomal genetic elements were not detected. The toxin excreted with a molecular mass above 15 kDa is fungicidal, resistant to proteolytic cleavage, thermolabile and active only against fungi within the Ustilaginomycetes (the orders Microstromatales and Ustilaginales).
