Design and synthesis of short antimicrobial peptide derivatives based on human cathelicidin
Volume 3, Issue 4 , March 2020, , Pages 21-34

  Cathelicidin derived from human leukocytes is a 171amino acid protein that demonstrated to have antimicrobial activity. Synthesis of Antimicrobial Peptides (AMPs) are known to be expensive. In this study, after extraction of human cathelicidin sequence from NCBI, physicochemical characteristics such ...  Read More

Biosynthesis of silver nanoparticles using the aqueous extract of chamomile flower and their antibacterial activity against Acinetobacter spp.
Volume 3, Issue 4 , March 2020, , Pages 48-62

  In this study, we have shown that biologically synthesized Silver Nanoparticles (Ag-NPs) can effectively inhibit the growth of a clinical isolate of the Acinetobacter spp in vivo. The bacterial strain was isolated from a hospitalized male burnt patient in Sulaymaniyah, Iraq. Initially, Minimum Inhibitory ...  Read More
