Antibacterial activity of lactophoricin, a synthetic 23-residues peptide derived from the sequence of bovine milk component-3 of proteose peptone.

Abstract

A synthetic peptide of 23 residues corresponding to the carboxyterminal 113 to 135 region of component-3 of proteose peptone (PP3) has been investigated with regard to its antibacterial properties. This cationic amphipathic peptide that we refer to as lactophoricin, displayed a growth-inhibitory activity against both gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria… (More)
