Abstract

Antimicrobial peptides are potentially valuable antibiotics. More research is required to turn these compounds into viable therapeutics. Herein, a novel highly potent antimicrobial peptide is presented as a tool to study antimicrobial peptides. Antibacterial activity in the low micromolar range, low haemolytic activity and excellent serum stability were observed.
