Antimicrobial peptides for detection of bacteria in biosensor assays.

Abstract

Bacteria, plants, and higher and lower animals have evolved an innate immune system as a first line of defense against microbial invasion. Some of these organisms produce antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) as a part of this chemical immune system. AMPs exert their antimicrobial activity by binding to components of the microbe's surface and disrupting the… (More)
