Description

Tachystatin B is an antimicrobial chitin binding peptide and consists of two isotopes B1 and B2. Both structures contain a short antiparallel beta sheet with an inhibitory cysteine knot motif. Tyr(14) and Arg(17) are thought to be the essential residues for chitin binding [PMID: 17394123].
