Two hemolytic peptides were isolated from the skin secretion of the Brazilian Hylidae frog Hyla biobeba, using reversed-phase chromatographic procedures. Hylins b1 and b2 exhibit short linear polypeptide chains, a large number of hydrophobic residues, amidated C-termini and hemolytic properties. These two novel peptides are the first examples of bombinins H-like peptides isolated from anurans species not related to Bombina species.

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.
