Product name: Epinecidin-1
Organism: Hoplobatrachus rugulosus
Modifications: C-terminal amide,
Counter ion: Trifluoacetate
Format: Lyophilized powder
Description: Epinecidin-1 is active against Gram-negative and -positive bacteria, viruses, Candida albicans, and Trichomonas vaginalis in vitro and in vivo. Morphological changes in bacteria treated with epinecidin-1 suggest that the peptide disrupts membranes and may thus prevent or delay the development of microbial resistance. In addition to its direct antibacterial effects, epinecidin-1 appears to regulate the host innate immune system in response to Vibrio vulnificus infection in zebrafish and also mediates cytokine secretion in response to bacterial infection in mice. Consequently, epinecidin-1, like other AMPs, possesses several important activities, including broad antibacterial, antiendotoxin, antitumor, antiviral, and immunomodulatory properties.
