Poacic Acid is a plant-derived stilbenoid with an antifungal activity. Poacic Acid localizes to the yeast cell wall and disrupts the production and assembly of β-1,3-glucan in the fungal cell walls. Poacic Acid exhibits fungicidal activity to Saccharomyces cerevisiae and plasma membrane-compromised Candida albicans mutants.

In Vitro

Poacic Acid (0-512 μg/ml 48h) exhibits significant growth inhibition of Saccharomyces cerevisiae at concentrations at or above 256 μg/mL. Poacic Acid also shows bactericidal effect on Candida albicans mutants with ERG11 and ERG3 gene deletion[1].
Poacic Acid (1 mM; 1-42 h) increases the production of chitin in the cell wall of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and altered its distribution[1].
Poacic Acid (512 μg/mL; 36 h) has a reduced inhibitory effect on Saccharomyces cerevisiae in the presence of additional β-glucan or chitin or metal ions[1].

Help & FAQs
  • Do most proteins show cross-species activity?

    Species cross-reactivity must be investigated individually for each product. Many human cytokines will produce a nice response in mouse cell lines, and many mouse proteins will show activity on human cells. Other proteins may have a lower specific activity when used in the opposite species.
