An antimicrobial polypeptide was purified from an acidified gill extract of Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) by C(18) reversed-phase HPLC. The purified polypeptide had a molecular weight of 8471Da containing 74 amino acid residues. Comparison of the obtained N-terminal sequences with those of others revealed that it was identical to ubiquitin reported from other species and named cgUbiquitin. cgUbiquitin showed broad potent antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive and -negative bacteria… CONTINUE READING
