Abstract The fusacandins, antifungal agents of the papulacandin class, are produced by a strain of Fusarium sambucinum. Fermentation yielded 60mg/liter of fusacandin A and minor amounts of fusacandin B. As expected, the fusacandins inhibit (1, 3)-β-glucan synthesis. Fusacandin A is slightly less active than papulacandin B against Candida albicans and, like papulacandin, loses activity in the presence of serum.
