From hemocytes of the tunicate Halocynthia aurantium we purified a new antimicrobial peptide named halocidin. The native peptide had a mass of 3443 Da and comprised two different subunits containing 18 amino acid residues (WLNALLHHGLNCAKGVLA) and 15 residues (ALLHHGLNCAKGVLA), which were linked covalently by a single cystine disulfide bond. Two different monomers were separately synthesized and used to make three additional isoforms (15 residue homodimer, 18 residue homodimer, heterodimer). In… CONTINUE READING
