  • Additional Information
    Kunitzin-RE is an amphibian-derived bioactivity peptide, is regarded as a potential antimicrobial candidate. However, its antimicrobial properties were unsatisfactory. W8 (AARIILRWRFR) significantly broadened the antimicrobial spectrum and showed the highest antimicrobial activity (GMall = 2.48 μM) against all the fungi and bacteria tested. Additionally, W8 showed high cell selectivity and salt tolerance in vitro, whereas it showed high effectiveness against mice keratitis cause by infection by C. albicans 2.2086. Additionally, it also had obviously lipopolysaccharide-binding ability and a potent membrane-disruptive mechanism.
  • Storage Guidelines
    Normally, this peptide will be delivered in lyophilized form and should be stored in a freezer at or below -20 °C. 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
