Abstract:


We analyzed 27 antifungal peptides (AFPs) to understand their stability by various parameters like, stabilization centers, GROMOS, OPLS and FOLDEF force fields. Subsequently, we propose that AFP, NK-Lysin could be considered a potential candidate and also could act as a template for designing the therapeutic peptide drug against pathogenic fungi.

Keywords:

NK-Lysin, stabilization centers, total energy, cation-π, intra-molecular interactions, free energy change
