Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Antifungal peptides have been identified in a wide range of life forms which include plants, mammals, and microorganism. Their structure are as varied as their antifungal properties. Semisynthetic and fully synthetic analogs have been developed from a few of these natural peptides that are superior to the paren compound. A few of these peptides hold promise in combating fungal infections and have entered clinical trials.
