Antimicrobial peptides: discovery, design and novel therapeutic strategies.

Book cover for Antimicrobial peptides: discovery, design and novel therapeutic strategies.

Description

This book contains 14 chapters focusing on discovery, classification and functional diversity of antimicrobial peptides; structural and functional diversity of cathelicidins; disulfide-linked defensins; prediction and design of antimicrobial peptides - methods and applications to genomes and proteomes; antimicrobial peptides; microbial membranes and the action of antimicrobial peptides; structural insight into the mechanisms of action of antimicrobial peptides and structure-based design; synergy of antimicrobial peptides; surface immobilization of antimicrobial peptides to prevent biofilm formation; sustained delivery of cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide-inducing compounds to minimize infection and enhance wound healing.
