EcAMP-1 antimicrobial peptide from barnyard grass (Echinochloa crus-galli)
EcAMP-1 is derived from the grass species Echinochloa crus-galli. It consists of 37 amino acids and is helical in structure, due in part to two disulfide bonds. This feature enables a unique hairpin structure which is not found in most other AMPs. EcAMP-1 has shown to have a toxic affect against a variety of fungi and protists. The mode of action for EcAMP-1 against fungi appears to be the prevention of hyphae elongation.
This part was codon optimized for E. coli using the Life Technologies GeneArt ® software program. By design, this part is Assembly Standard #23 (Silver Fusion) and contains a Methionine(atg) residue at the start of the coding region.
