Intracellular Targeting Mechanisms by Antimicrobial Peptides
ABSTRACT Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are expressed in various living organisms as first-line host defenses against potential harmful encounters in their surroundings. AMPs are short polycationicExpand
Activity of Novel Synthetic Peptides against Candida albicans
Candida spp. are the most common causes of fungal infections worldwide. Among the Candida species, Candida albicans remains the predominant species that causes invasive candidiasis in most countries.Expand
Antimicrobial Activity of Novel Synthetic Peptides Derived from Indolicidin and Ranalexin against Streptococcus pneumoniae
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) represent promising alternatives to conventional antibiotics in order to defeat multidrug-resistant bacteria such as Streptococcus pneumoniae. In this study, thirteenExpand
Phytosterols isolated from Clinacanthus nutans induce immunosuppressive activity in murine cells
&NA; Clinacanthus nutans (Burm. f.) Lindau is a traditional medicinal plant belonging to the Acanthaceae family. Its therapeutic potentials have been increasingly documented particularly theExpand
Capsular Serotype and Antibiotic Resistance of Streptococcus pneumoniae Isolates in Malaysia
Background Streptococcus pneumoniae is a major causative agent of severe infections, including sepsis, pneumonia, meningitis, and otitis media, that has since become a major public health concern. InExpand
The epidemiology of pneumococcal carriage and infections in Malaysia
In Malaysia, various aspects of the epidemiology of pneumococcal carriage and disease remain largely unclear due to the lack of supporting data. Although a number of relevant studies have beenExpand
The Potential of Antiviral Peptides as COVID-19 Therapeutics
To date, more than 17 million cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and 900,000 deaths have been reported globally (World Health Organization, 2020). Major collaborative efforts focusing onExpand
Antimicrobial peptides from different plant sources: Isolation, characterisation, and purification.
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), the self-defence products of organisms, are extensively distributed in plants. They can be classified into several groups, including thionins, defensins, snakins, lipidExpand
In vitro properties of designed antimicrobial peptides that exhibit potent antipneumococcal activity and produces synergism in combination with penicillin
Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) represent a promising class of novel antimicrobial agents owing to their potent antimicrobial activity. In this study, two lead peptides from unrelated classes of AMPsExpand
Extractive disruption process integration using ultrasonication and an aqueous two‐phase system for protein recovery from Chlorella sorokiniana
Microalgae emerge as the most promising protein sources for aquaculture industry. However, the commercial proteins production at low cost remains a challenge. The process of harnessing microalgalExpand
