Reports of cationic antimicrobial peptides (CAPs) have become standard fare in research literature. But with several hundred peptides described to date, the investigator who tries to navigate the proposed models of their activity is only treated to a generous serving of incongruencies. Rather than acting in isolation as antimicrobial molecules, CAPs also may synergize with other molecules of innate immunity and modulate both innate and adaptive immune systems, thus providing a link between the various mechanisms that result in host protection.

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
