jmbReview Design and Engineering of Antimicrobial Peptides Based on LPcin-YK 3 , an Antimicrobial Peptide Derivative from Bovine Milk

  title={jmbReview Design and Engineering of Antimicrobial Peptides Based on LPcin-YK 3 , an Antimicrobial Peptide Derivative from Bovine Milk},
  author={Ji-sun Kim and Ji-ho Jeong and Yongae Kim},
Since the discovery of penicillin by Alexander Fleming in 1929, antibiotics have been regarded as the most important discoveries in modern medicine, and in fact the development of antibiotics has exploded since the Second World War [1-3]. However, antibiotic resistance has been found in the early stages of development, and abuse of antibiotics in humans and livestock has led to the emergence of many multidrug-resistant bacteria or super bacteria [4]. As a result, the development of new…

Antimicrobial peptides: A natural alternative to chemical antibiotics and a potential for applied biotechnology
A resulting new generation of anti microbial peptides (AMPs) with higher specific activity and wider microbe-range of action could be constructed, and hopefully endogenously expressed in genetically-modified organisms.
Antimicrobial properties of the skin secretions of frogs
There has been little research done on anurans from southern Africa which are endemic to the region, and there is therefore a need to focus on this group for the purposes of bioprospecting for potentially new antimicrobial peptide compounds.
Design, Characterization, and Antimicrobial Activity of a Novel Antimicrobial Peptide Derived from Bovine Lactophoricin.
Three analogs of LPcin could be used as an alternative source of powerful antibacterial agents and were selected because they showed better antibiotic activities than LPcin.
Will new generations of modified antimicrobial peptides improve their potential as pharmaceuticals?

Evaluation of Strategies for Improving Proteolytic Resistance of Antimicrobial Peptides by Using Variants of EFK17, an Internal Segment of LL-37
Overall, W substitutions constitute an interesting means to reduce the proteolytic susceptibility of EFK17 while also improving antimicrobial performance.
Optimized Expression and Characterization of Antimicrobial Peptides, LPcin Analogs
The results so far have shown that the three LPcin analogs could become potent antimicrobial peptides like LPcin as an alternative of new antibiotics in the near future.
Multifunctional host defense peptides: Antimicrobial peptides, the small yet big players in innate and adaptive immunity
This minireview focuses on the contribution of small cationic antimicrobial peptides – particularly human cathelicidins and defensins – to the immune response and disease, highlighting recent advances in the understanding of the roles of these multifunctional molecules.
Systematic Peptide Engineering and Structural Characterization to Search for the Shortest Antimicrobial Peptide Analogue of Gaegurin 5*
Two 11-residue analogues of GGN5, which exhibited strong bactericidal activity with little hemolytic activity, were obtained as property-optimized candidates for new peptide antibiotic development.
