NLF20: an antimicrobial peptide with therapeutic potential against invasive Pseudomonas aeruginosa infection.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Increasing resistance to antibiotics makes antimicrobial peptides interesting as novel therapeutics. Here, we report on studies of the peptide NLF20 (NLFRKLTHRLFRRNFGYTLR), corresponding to an epitope of the D helix of heparin cofactor II (HCII), a plasma protein mediating bacterial clearance.
