  • Additional Information
    Based on Dr. Yun study. Cecropin A, isolated from the giant silk moth Hyalophora cecropia, is a 37-mer peptide that exerts potent antimicrobial effects. We investigated cecropin A-induced apoptosis associated with ion balance and redox state of Candida albicans. The antifungal effect of cecropin A, associated with ion movement was verified by significant increase of cell viability following pretreatment of ion channel blockers. Cecropin A induced undesired ion movement such as calcium accumulation and potassium leakage. Furthermore, the reduction of phosphatidylserine (PS) externalization was detected following pretreatment of ion channel blockers.
  • Storage Guidelines
    Ideally Cecropin A should be stored in a freezer at or below -9C. Cecropin A should be refrigerated after reconstitution. For more details, please refer to the manual:Handling and Storage of Synthetic Peptides

  • About TFA salt

    Trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) is a strong acid, which is commonly used to cleave synthesized peptides from solid-phase resins and is also used to improve HPLC performance in the peptide purification step. By default, custom peptides are delivered as lyophilized TFA salts, and can contain as much as 10-45% TFA.

    TFA in custom peptides can cause inexplicable discrepancies in subsequent assay data. For instance, TFA in nM concentrations has been shown to interfere with cellular assays, inhibiting cellular proliferation in some instances, and increasing cell viability in others . It has also been found to be an unintended allosteric modulator of the glycine receptor, GlyR.

    TFA Removal Service is recommended for:

    • Peptides that will be used in cellular assays
    • Peptides that will be used as APIs or in manufactured products
    • For hydrophilic peptides containing numerous basic residues
