Protegrins: structural requirements for inactivating elementary bodies of Chlamydia trachomatis.

By B Yasin, R I Lehrer, S S Harwig and E A Wagar

Abstract

We tested 20 protegrins against Chlamydia trachomatis serovar L2 (L2/434/Bu). Five of the protegrins had native structures; the others included nonamidated, enantiomeric, and truncated variants and peptides with <2 disulfide bonds. Antichlamydial activity resided principally in residues 5 to 15 of native protegrin PG-1, and optimal activity required both intramolecular disulfide bonds
