  • The natural antimicrobial cationic peptide protegrin‐1 displays a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity and rapidly kills pathogens by interacting with their cell membrane. We investigated the structure–activity relationships of three protegrin‐1 analogues: IB‐367 (RGGLCYCRGRFCVCVGR‐NH2), BM‐1 (RGLCYCRGRFCVCVG‐NH2) and BM‐2 (RGLCYRPRFVCVG‐NH2). Our antimicrobial and antifungal activity studies of these peptides showed that BM‐1 was much more active than IB‐367 against Gram‐positive bacteria… CONTINUE READING
