18 p, 3.7 MB A genomic approach highlights common and diverse effects and determinants of susceptibility on the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae exposed to distinct antimicrobial peptides / López García, Belén (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Gandía, Mónica (Instituto de Agroquímica y Tecnología de Alimentos (IATA). Departamento de Ciencia de Los Alimentos) ; Munoz, Alberto (University of Edinburgh. Institute of Cell Biology. Fungal Cell Biology Group) ; Carmona, Lourdes (Instituto de Agroquímica y Tecnología de Alimentos (IATA). Departamento de Ciencia de Los Alimentos) ; Marcos, Jose F. (Instituto de Agroquímica y Tecnología de Alimentos (IATA). Departamento de Ciencia de Los Alimentos)
Background: The mechanism of action of antimicrobial peptides (AMP) was initially correlated with peptide membrane permeation properties. However, recent evidences indicate that action of a number of AMP is more complex and involves specific interactions at cell envelopes or with intracellular targets. [...]

13 p, 14.7 MB Rice seeds as biofactories of rationally designed and cell-penetrating antifungal PAF peptides / Bundó Barberà, Mireia (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Shi, Xiaoqing (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Vernet-Tomas, Maria (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Marcos, Jose F. (Instituto de Agroquímica y Tecnología de Alimentos) ; López García, Belén (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Coca López, María (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica)
PAFs are short cationic and tryptophan-rich synthetic peptides with cell-penetrating antifungal activity. They show potent and selective killing activity against major fungal pathogens and low toxicity to other eukaryotic and bacterial cells. [...]

36 p, 1.9 MB Type III secretion inhibitors for the management of bacterial plant diseases / Puigvert, Marina (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Solé, Montserrat (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; López-Garcia, Belén (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Sánchez Coll, Núria (Centre de Recerca en Agrigenòmica) ; Beattie, Karren D. (Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery) ; Davis, Rohan A. (Griffith Institute for Drug Discovery) ; Elofsson, Mikael (Umeå University. Department of Chemistry) ; Valls, Marc (Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Genètica i de Microbiologia)
The identification of chemical compounds that prevent and combat bacterial diseases is fundamental for crop production. Bacterial virulence inhibitors are a promising alternative to classical control treatments, because they have a low environmental impact and are less likely to generate bacterial resistance. [...]

158 p, 5.0 MB Diseño y caracterización de péptidos específicamente dirigidos al bloqueo de la formación del apresorio en el hongo fitopatógeno Magnaporthe oryzae / Rebollar Álvarez, Aarón ; López García, Belén, dir. ; Martos, Soledad ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona. Departament de Biologia Animal, de Biologia Vegetal i d'Ecologia
La piriculariosis del arroz, causada por el hongo Magnaporthe oryzae, es la enfermedad que más pérdidas genera devastando miles de hectáreas de cultivo anualmente. Los tratamientos antifúngicos frente a esta enfermedad suelen ser de poca utilidad y se vuelven ineficaces en poco tiempo debido a la alta tasa de variación del hongo. [...]
Rice blast caused by the fungus Magnaporthe oryzae is the most devastating rice disease, causing losses and ravaging thousands of hectares every year. Antifungal treatments are often ineffective and become useless soon due to the high fungus variation rate. [...]
