From the bulbs of the onion Allium cepa, a novel antifungal peptide distinct from the antimicrobial peptide previously reported from onion seeds was isolated. The antifungal peptide, designated allicepin, was purified with a procedure that involved aqueous extraction, ion exchange chromatography on DEAE‐cellulose, affinity chromatography on Affi‐gel blue gel and FPLC‐gel filtration on Superdex 75. Allicepin was unadsorbed on DEAE‐cellulose and adsorbed on Affi‐gel blue gel. The molecular weight of allicepin was estimated to be 10 K by sodium dodecyl sulfate‐polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis and gel filtration on Superdex 75. Allicepin exerted an inhibitory activity on mycelial growth in several fungal species including Botrytis cinerea, Fusarium oxysporum, Mycosphaerella arachidicola and Physalospora piricola.
