Abstract Cecropin A (CA) fungicidal properties were explored. Nongerminated and germinated Aspergillus spp. and Fusarium spp. conidia were treated with CA. CA achieved complete lethality at < or = 25 microM (99 micrograms/ml) for germinating, but not nongerminating, conidia of Aspergillus spp. CA achieved total lethality for nongerminated and germinating conidia of Fusarium spp at 1.5 microM (6 micrograms/ml). MIC and minimal lethal concentration assays in buffered RPMI medium gave similar results.
