We have previously described the structure and the ability of a dimeric analog of the antimicrobial peptide Aurein 1.2 to aggregate Candida albicans. In this study, circular dichroism and fluorescence spectroscopy data showed that this aggregation is related to the interaction between the peptide and mannans, the main component of yeast cell wall. In this(More)
Background Most of scientific studies with peptide have aim to therapeutic use. New compounds have the ability to activate or inhibit biological processes. The combination of anticancer drugs with a molecule which recognizes tumor specific connections, through a receiver, may provide an effective anticancer agent. The hormone GnRH-III, analogue of the(More)
