Product name: Clavanin-A
Organism: Sea squirt
Modifications: C-terminal amide,
Counter ion: Trifluoacetate
Format: Lyophilized powder
Description: Clavanin A is a special antimicrobial peptide that acts at the level of the membrane via a pH-dependent mechanism. At neutral pH, clavanin disrupts biological and model membranes in a nonspecific manner, causing efflux of large molecules. At mildly acidic conditions, however, the peptide efficiently kills bacteria by permeabilizing their membrane most likely by interacting with proteins involved in proton translocation .
