Antimicrobial peptides and proteins (AMPs) are among the most important components of the immune system of multicellular organisms. The role of AMPs is of particular importance for invertebrates which constitute the vast majority of species diversity of the living world, because these animals lack acquired immunity. The AMPs of animal origin are ribosomally… CONTINUE READING
