(Lipo)polysaccharide interactions of antimicrobial peptides.

Schmidtchen, Artur LU and Malmsten, Martin (2015) In Journal of Colloid and Interface Science 449(Nov 20). p.136-142
Abstract
Due to rapidly increasing resistance development against conventional antibiotics, as well as problems associated with diseases either triggered or deteriorated by infection, antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory peptides have attracted considerable interest during the last few years. While there is an emerging understanding of the direct antimicrobial function of such peptides through bacterial membrane destabilization, the mechanisms of their anti-inflammatory function are less clear. We here summarize some recent results obtained from our own research on anti-inflammatory peptides, with focus on peptide-(lipo)polysaccharide interactions.
