Cecropin B is a natural linear cationic α-helical antimicrobial peptide (AMP) originally identified in insects.  Cecropin B has a wide spectrum of antimicrobial activities against gram-negative bacteria, gram-positive bacteria, and fungal phytopathogens, killing bacteria by affecting the integrity of the bacterial membranes.  Cecropins constitute a main part of the innate immune system of insects.
