dc.description.abstractThe biological action of the K toxins involves a first step in the killing process, which correspond to the adsorption the toxin to the cell wall of sensitive cells. Here we describe the work performed towards the identification of the cell wall receptor for the zymocin under this study. For this purpose, the main cell wall components of the sensitive yeast Pichia guilliermondii were extracted. These cell wall components and others commercial polymers were tested for its binding capacity to C. nodaensis K toxin. The results obtained pointed to glucan as the primary receptor for this K toxin.eng
