We are evaluating several antifungal factors for their activity in transgenic cells and callus cultures of cotton and tobacco. These factors include a linear, synthetic peptide (D4E1); a 14 kDa trypsin inhibitor gene identified from corn varieties resistant to Aspergillus flavus and a haloperoxidase gene construct of Pseudomonas origin.
