A promising strategy to increase activity in antimicrobial peptides

20:00 EDT 2 Apr 2017 | AAAS

(Institut national de la recherche scientifique - INRS) In an article published recently in Plos One, researchers from INRS-Institut Armand-Frappier Research Centre reported a strategy that could lead to the discovery of new cationic antimicrobial peptides (CAMPs) with greatly enhanced antimicrobial properties. The peptide modified for the study retained considerable activity against biofilms responsible for increasing the severity of various infections. The strategy thus holds promise for combatting multidrug resistant bacteria.
