In our previous paper it was shown that the two C-terminal Gln residues of a C-terminal 15-residue fragment, Mel(12-26) (GLPALISWIKRKRQQ-NH2), of melittin and a series of individual substituted analogues might not involved in the interaction with bacterial membranes. In this paper, peptides with one and two Gln residues deletion, respectively, Mel(12-25)(More)
A 9-residue peptide, CP-1 (GLRILLLKV-NH(2)), is synthesized by solid-phase synthesis method. CP-1 is a C-terminal amidated derivative of a hydrophobic transmembrane segment (CP) of the T-cell antigen receptor (TCR) alpha-chain. CP-1 shows broad-spectrum antimicrobial activities against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria with the minimal inhibitory(More)
Programmed cell death (PCD) is a genetically controlled and conserved process in eukaryotes during development as well as in response to pathogens and other stresses. BAX inhibitor-1 (BI-1) has been implicated as an anti-PCD factor which is highly conserved in plants. Sequence of putative cucumber BI-1 protein exhibited 77.7 % identity and 91.2 % positive(More)
