Neobatrachia is the amphibian suborder with the largest number of species and a most important source of bioactive peptides from frog skin secretions. However, 90% of the studies on this subject have been focused on the frog families Hylidae and Ranidae, while very little is known about peptides of other families, like Leptodactylidae. Our work reports for the first time the isolation and characterization of ocellatin 4 (GLLDFVTGVGKDIFAQLIKQI-NH(2)), a cytolytic peptide from the skin secretion… Expand
