Identification and structural analysis of the antimicrobial domain in hipposin, a 51-mer antimicrobial peptide isolated from Atlantic halibut.

Abstract

Hipposin is a potent 51-mer antimicrobial peptide (AMP) from Atlantic halibut with sequence similarity to parasin (19-mer catfish AMP), buforin I (39-mer toad AMP), and buforin II (an active 21-mer fragment of buforin I), suggesting that the antimicrobial activity of these peptides might all be due to a common antimicrobial sequence motif. In order to… (More)
