study provides new way to develop unconventional anticancer strategies

Sumary of Study provides new way to develop unconventional anticancer strategies:

  • Reviewed by Emily Henderson, B.Sc.Nov 20 2020 There is considerable interest in a new class of anticancer molecules that is currently still under investigation termed the cationic antimicrobial peptides (AMPs)..
  • Related Stories The small innate peptides cover a broad spectrum of antibacterial activities due to their electrostatic interactions with the negatively charged bacterial membrane..
  • This provides an opportunity for exploiting the interaction between AMPs and negatively charged cell membranes in developing unconventional anticancer strategies..
  • Some AMPs may also be categorized into a group of potential anticancer agents called cationic anticancer peptides (ACPs) due to their relative selectivity in cell membrane penetration and lysis, which is similar to their interaction with bacterial membranes…
