Antimicrobial molecules from insects may serve as a potentially significant group of antibiotics. To identify the effect of antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) on bacterial membrane and obtain further insight in the mechanism of membrane transport of AMPs, the interaction of surface potential and permeation of a novel antimicrobial peptide MDpep5 (Val-Glu-Ser-Trp-Val) from Chinese traditional edible larvae of housefly was examined using liposomes from bacterial lipids extract. Compared with the… CONTINUE READING
