Keanu Reeves, scientists name deadly substances for fungi after the actor

German researchers have discovered chemicals that can kill fungi. So far, nothing special. The peculiarity of this news is that the researchers wanted to name these substances keanumycins, in homage to the actor Keanu Reeves.

The study was then published in the Journal of the American Chemical Society, in which it is explained that these lipopeptides are so lethal that they are reminiscent of some of the characters Keanu Reeves played on the big screen (e.g. in 'John Wick' or 'The Matrix'). 

Keanumycins will be an excellent starting point for the production of drugs to combat fungi.

What will these substances do against fungi
Keanumycins will be an excellent starting point for the production of drugs to combat fungi. Besides being particularly effective against fungi, keanumycins are not very harmful or toxic to human cells. This latter characteristic would differentiate them from other substances used so far.

The character Keanu Reeves
Keanu Reeves has always been appreciated not only as an actor but also for being an out-of-the-ordinary character, quite far removed from the typical Hollywood star logic. From today, the actor will be able to add another peculiarity to his persona: he will be known for naming deadly chemicals against fungi! Not a bad curiosity indeed...
