Cationic antimicrobial peptides are promising sources for novel therapeutic agents against multi-drug-resistant bacteria. HHC-36 (KRWWKWWRR) is a simple but effective antimicrobial peptide with similar or superior activity compared with several conventional antibiotics. In this biophysical study, unique conformational properties of this peptide and some of(More)

McMillan and Mayer (MM) proved two remarkable theorems in their paper on the equilibrium statistical mechanics of liquid solutions. They first showed that the grand canonical partition function for a solution can be reduced to one with an effectively solute-only form, by integrating out the solvent degrees of freedom. The total effective solute potential in(More)
