Abstract

Here, we report two novel peptides identified from the skin secretion, having homologies to Lividin and Spinulosain, of an endemic frog, Hydrophylax bahuvistara, of Western Ghats. This is the first report of these peptides from Indian frogs and first identification of Lividin from the Hydrophylax genus. Both peptides exhibited weak antimicrobial activity but very low haemolytic activity. The problems of naming amphibian host defense peptides (HDPs) are also discussed.
