A novel antibacterial peptide, moricin, isolated from the silkworm Bombyx mori, consists of 42 amino acids. It is highly basic and the amino acid sequence has no significant similarity to those of other antibacterial peptides. The 20 structures of moricin in methanol have been determined from two-dimensional 1H-nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopic data. The solution structure reveals an unique structure comprising of a long alpha-helix containing eight turns along nearly the full length of… CONTINUE READING
