A comparative study was designed to evaluate the staphylococcidal efficiency of two sequence-related plasticins from the dermaseptin superfamily we screened previously. Their bactericidal activities against Staphylococcus aureus as well as their chemotactic potential were investigated. The impact of the GraS/GraR two-component system involved in regulating resistance to cationic antimicrobial peptides (CAMPs) was evaluated. Membrane disturbing activity was quantified by membrane depolarization… CONTINUE READING
