Enhancing membrane disruption by targeting and multivalent presentation of antimicrobial peptides

Biochimica Et Biophysica Acta
Cristina ChamorroRoland J Pieters


In order to enhance the membrane disruption of antimicrobial peptides both targeting and multivalent presentation approaches were explored. The antimicrobial peptides anoplin and temporin L were conjugated via click chemistry to vancomycin and to di- and tetravalent dendrimers. The vancomycin unit led to enhanced membrane disruption of large unilamellar vesicles (LUVs) displaying the vancomycin target lipid II, but only for temporin L and not for anoplin. The multivalent presentation led to enhanced LUV membrane disruption in the case of anoplin but not for temporin L.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.
