Polyclonal Rabbit Affinity Purified E B IP IH IC
Cecropins are produced by insects, particularly under conditions of infection. Cecropins are bioactive peptides that exhibit activities by interacting with membranes and forming transmembrane channels that allow the free flow of electrolytes, metabolites and water across the phospholipid bilayers. Cecropins A, B and D are close homologues consisting of 35-39 residues. They are found in the pupae of the cecropin moth, but related homologues named lepodopteran, bactericidin, moricin and sarcotoxin are produced by other insects. Application Note(s): Anti-cecropin B is useful for the detection of cecropin B in various immunological assays. This reagent has specific value to study cecropins in transgenic plants. The antibody may also recognize naturally occurring cecropin A. Cecropin B has been modified in some instances by substituting a single amino acid to render the molecule less susceptible to proteolytic cleavage.
