Ten peptides with differential growth-inhibitory activity against the gram-positive bacterium, Staphylococcus aureus, the gram-negative bacterium, Escherichia coli, and the yeast Candida albicans were isolated from an extract of the skin of a North American frog, the green frog Rana clamitans. Ranatuerin-1C (SMLSVLKNLGKVGLGLVACKINKQC), ranalexin-1Ca (FLGGLMKAFPALICAVTKKC), ranalexin-1Cb (FLGGLMKAFPAIICAVTKKC), ranatuerin-2Ca (GLFLDTLKGAAKDVAGKLLEGLKCKIAGC KP), and ranatuerin-2Cb… CONTINUE READING
