Esculentins constitute the most potent antimicrobial peptides from frog skin. The present study describes the successful isolation of 3 novel esculentin -2 peptides from the skin secretion of Indian bronzed frog Hylarana temporalis. The deduced open reading frames encoding the biosynthetic precursors of each esculentin consisted of 76 amino acid residues. Precursors of these novel peptides, named esculentin-2TEa, esculentin-2TEb and esculentin-2TEc, from H.temporalis showed 12 amino acid differences than the nearest homologous peptide reported so far. This forms the first report of escuelentin peptides from Hylarana temporalis, endemic to India and Srilanka
