Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) offer a potent and effective alternative for treatment of antibiotic resistant microbes. Mastoparans or mastoparan like peptides are the most abundant peptides reported in vespid/social wasp venoms with potent antimicrobial activity. Polybia MP-1 is an amphipathic tetradecapeptide isolated from the venom of the vespid wasp Polybia paulista with potent antimicrobial activity and high selectivity for bacterial membranes. In the present study, the antimicrobial activit...

The extensive use of antibiotics in medical, as well as in veterinary practices has led to the development of antibiotic resistance which is of increasing global concern. The so called “superbugs” or the multi-drug resistant bacteria have made the present day antibiotics less effective. Therefore, search of an alternative is the need of hour, and for which antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) could be a good approach. AMPs are relatively short (12 to 100 amino acids), amphipathic peptides isolated from...
