Antimicrobial peptide Temporin-Ra was isolated from the skin secretions of marsh frog Rana ridibunda. Temporin-Ra was chemically synthesized and purified using RP-HPLC technique. The cytotoxicity of peptide on lung airway epithelial cell line (A549) and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) was studied by MTT assay. Furthermore, the effect of(More)
Brevinin-2R is an antimicrobial peptide which has been isolated from the skin of the frog Rana ridibunda. The purpose of the present study was to examine the cellular cytotoxicity and inflammatory effects of brevinin-2R (B2R) on human lung epithelial adenocarcinoma cell line A549. The effects of different concentrations (5, 10, and 20 μg/ml) of B2R on the(More)
