Product name: Hinnavin II
Organism: Small white butterfly
Modifications: C-terminal amide,
Counter ion: Trifluoacetate
Format: Lyophilized powder
Description: Hinnavins, together with lysozymes, are the main types of antibacterial peptides/proteins previously isolated from the larval haemolymph of the cabbage butterfly, Artogeia rapae as part of the humoral immune response to a bacterial invasion. One of these antibacterial peptides, named hinnavin II, was purified and characterized after cDNA cloning. The purified hinnavin II was more active against Gram negative than against Gram positive bacteria. Hinnavin II also showed a powerful synergistic effect on the inhibition of bacterial growth with purified lysozyme.
