Description Indolicidin is a 13-residue peptide amide which was isolated and characterized from the cytoplasmic granules of bovine neutrophils, having potent antibacterial activity in vitro against bacteria and fungi. The primary structure of indolicidin is characterized by 5 tryptophan residues, which is the highest mole percentage of any known protein sequence and is unique among known endogenous antibacterial peptides.
