Abstract/OtherAbstract:
CAPs off to the S-S bond: Application of a strategy involving the introduction of intramolecular disulfide bonds to amphipathic cationic antimicrobial peptides (CAPs) led to decreased α-helicity and hydrophobicity. The mutant peptides were observed to have significantly increased (250-fold) minimum hemolytic concentrations while maintaining MIC values against E. coli, affording more therapeutically selective CAPs.
