Product name: Buforin-2
Organism: Asian toad
Synonyms: Buforin II, TRSSRAGLQFPVGRVHRLLRK,
Counter ion: Trifluoacetate
Format: Lyophilized powder
Description: The antimicrobial peptide buforin II contains residues Thr16 to Lys36 of buforin I and exhibits antimicrobial activity that is twice as potent as that of its parent peptide. Buforin II (BF2) is a histone-derived antimicrobial peptide that causes cell death by translocating across membranes and interacting with nucleic acids. It contains one proline residue critical for its function. Previous research found that mutations replacing proline lead to decreased membrane translocation and antimicrobial activity as well as increased membrane permeabilization.
