Histone H5: Bioinspiration for Novel Antimicrobial Peptides

Joelle Jodoin
Modern medicine is challenged continuously by the increasing prevalence of multi-drug resistant bacteria. Therefore, the development of alternatives to traditional antibiotics is an urgent necessity. Cationic antimicrobial peptides (CAMPs) are components of the innate immune defense system. Histones, generally known as proteins that package and regulate the transcription of DNA, share all of the essential antimicrobial traits of CAMPs, and could be promising alternatives to antibiotics. In this study, I investigated the antimicrobial properties of...
