  • Marine invertebrates are a rich source for the discovery of novel antimicrobial peptides, compounds regarded as important defense components in the host defense system. Here we report the purification and characterization of an 11.7kDa Gly-rich peptide, named hyastatin, from the hemocytes of Hyas araneus. It consists of three distinctly different domains: an N-terminal region enriched in Gly residues, a short Pro/Arg-rich region, and a C-terminal region containing six Cys residues with a Cys… CONTINUE READING
