Special Issue "Synthesis and Utility of Antimicrobial Peptides"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 August 2020).
Interests: SPPS; Antifungals; Antibiotics; Bilayers; Cell-Based Assay; Antimicrobial Resistance; Toxins; Peptides; Biochemistry; Biophysics; Biomaterials
With the rise in antimicrobial resistance, much has been made about the utility of Antimicrobial Peptides for treating infectious diseases. Peptides from both synthetic and natural sources have been touted as broad-spectrum antimicrobials. We, as investigators in the field of antimicrobial peptides, need to take charge of the narrative around our research. This issue of [Antibiotics] seeks to highlight the aspects of antimicrobial peptide research that are underappreciated: synergy with other antimicrobials, sustainable production of peptides, and development of resistance to peptides. Papers touching on any of these areas are enchouraged to submit for this special issue. Other topics related to antimicrobial peptides will also be considered. Now is the time for antimicrobial peptides to be spotlighted as anti-infective reagents; please join us in bringing to light these important molecules.
