Calculating the free energy of antimicrobial peptide (HHC-36) dimerization in bulk

shaqa vafa University of Guelph
The increasing demand for antibiotics has contributed to the investigation of possible novel antibiotics by many researchers. For this purpose experimental and theoretical studies have been carried out to draw scientists' attention to antimicrobial peptides and their interaction with the surface of bacterial membranes. Their ability to disrupt the functioning of bacterial membranes has been probed from different perspectives. The most desirable antimicrobial peptides are those which do not harm plant or animals' membranes but which disrupt bacterial membranes.
