Mammalian defensins (alpha as well as beta forms) have a beta-hairpin structural motif spanning approximately 20 residues at the carboxy-terminal end. We have investigated the antibacterial activity and biophysical properties of synthetic peptides corresponding to the carboxy-terminal segment of bovine beta-defensin-2 (BNBD-2): VRNHVTC(1)RINRGFC(2)VPIRC(3)PGRTRQIGTC(4)FGPRIKC(5)C(6)RSW (positions of disulfide bonds are C(1)[bond]C(5), C(2)[bond]C(4), and C(3)[bond]C(6)). The parent sequence… CONTINUE READING
