The branched M33 antimicrobial peptide was previously shown to be very active against Gram-negative bacterial pathogens, including multidrug-resistant strains. In an attempt to produce back-up molecules, we synthesized an M33 peptide isomer consisting of D-aminoacids (M33-D). This isomeric version showed 4 to 16-fold higher activity against Gram-positive(More)
The research of new antimicrobial compounds has an impact on public health and economy of many countries. Given the great problem of bacterial resistance, the study of new molecules that bypass this mechanism is of great importance. Trypsin is an enzyme necessary for gut physiology and the peptides it forms could be of great interest to the pharmaceutical(More)
