A comparative study of three synthetic peptides, namely neutral Cecropin D-like G. mellonella (WT) and two cationic peptides derived from its sequence, ΔM1 (+5) and ΔM2 (+9) is reported in this work. The influence of charge on the interactions between peptides and membranes and its effect on phase were studied by calorimetric assays. Differential scanning(More)
Antimicrobial peptides are effector molecules of the innate immune system against invading pathogens. The cationic charge in their structures has a strong correlation with antimicrobial activity, being responsible for the initial electrostatic interaction between peptides and the anionic microbial surface. This paper contains evidence that charge(More)
