Frog antimicrobial peptide, brevinin-1 type (IPR012520)

Short name: Antimicrobial_frog_1

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships



This family includes antimicrobial peptides secreted from skins of frogs. The secretion of antimicrobial peptides from the skins of frogs plays an important role in self defence. Structural analysis of these peptides showed that they can be classified into eight families [PMID: 10651828]. This is the brevinin-1 family.
