Synthesis and Study of the Antimicrobial Action of Cecropin A-Melittin Hybrids with Aib Substitution
Cecropins  and melittins  are a group of potent antimicrobial peptides. The cecropin melittin analogs are highly antimicrobial , had antitumor activity  and cecropins are potent fungicides . To understand the role of substitution of hydrophobic amino acids with hydrophilic amino acids and Aib, different substituted analogs were separately synthesized and their antimicrobial activity studied.
