Antimicrobial agents

Antimicrobial agents are molecules with the ability to kill or inhibit the growth of microorganisms. Anti microbial peptides (AMPs) are short and generally positively charged peptides found in a wide variety of life forms from microorganisms to humans, and are essential components of defence against infection. Antimicrobial peptides, also known as host defence peptides, are active against bacteria, viruses, microscopic fungi and protozoa - through targeting different cellular components such as bacterial and fungal cell walls, the viral capsid, enzymes involved in DNA transcription, and cellular metabolism.
