A novel antimicrobial peptide designated melectin was isolated from the venom of the cleptoparasitic bee Melecta albifrons. Its primary sequence was established as H‐Gly‐Phe‐Leu‐Ser‐Ile‐Leu‐Lys‐Lys‐Val‐Leu‐Pro‐Lys‐Val‐Met‐Ala‐His‐Met‐Lys‐NH2 by Edman degradation and ESI‐QTOF mass spectrometry. Synthetic melectin exhibited antimicrobial activity against both Gram‐positive and ‐negative bacteria and it degranulated rat peritoneal mast cells, but its hemolytic activity was low. The CD spectra of… Expand
