Catestatin (bCGA344–364), an endogenous peptide of bovine chromogranin A, was initially characterized for its effect on the inhibition of catecholamine release from chromaffin cells. Catestatin and its active domain (bCGA344–358) were identified in chromaffin cells and in secretion medium. The present study identified a potent antimicrobial activity of bCGA344–358 in the lowmicromolar range against bacteria, fungi and yeasts, without showing any haemolytic activity. Confocal laser microscopy… CONTINUE READING
