Dermcidin (DCD) is an antimicrobial peptide which is constitutively expressed in eccrine sweat glands. By postsecretory proteolytic processing in sweat, the DCD protein gives rise to anionic and cationic DCD peptides with a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity. Many antimicrobial peptides induce membrane permeabilization as part of their killing(More)
A genome map of Staphylococcus carnosus TM300, an important micro-organism in the food industry and long used as a starter culture, was constructed by pulsed-field gel electrophoresis of DNA fragments obtained after digestion with NotI, SfiI and ApaI. The size of the chromosome was estimated to be 2590 kb. The fragments were assembled into a physical map(More)
