The skin glands of the tree frog Litoria chloris contain a variety of peptides including four antibacterial peptides of the caerin 1 family. Two of these, caerins 1.6 and 1.7, are also present in the related species Litoria xanthomera. The other two peptides, caerins 1.8 and 1.9, are new. Their sequences are: GLFKVLGSVAKHLLPHVVPVIAEKL-NH2 [Caerin 1.8] and GLFGVLGSIAKHVLPHVVPVIAEKL-NH2 [Caerin 1.9]. Comparison of the skin peptide profiles of L. chloris and L. xanthomera confirms that these… CONTINUE READING
