Abstract

The nomenclature and classification of naturally occurring antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are complex and have not been fully standardized. The Antimicrobial Peptide Database (htt p://aps.unmc.edu/AP/ main.php) is a useful tool that facilitates peptide naming and classification. The names of AMPs are normally derived from peptide properties, source species or a combination of both. In the database, AMPs are classified based on source organisms (protozoa, bacteria, archaea, fungi, plants and animals), biological activities (antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, antiparasitic, spermicidal and insecticidal), peptide features (charge, length, hydrophobic residue content, chemical modification and threedimensional structure), binding targets (membranes and non-membranes) and mechanisms of action of the peptides. This database also enables bioinformatic analysis of AMPs that reveals amino acid composition signatures as well as frequently occurring residues.
