LL-37, also known as CAP-18 (Cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide 18), is a 37 amino acid cationic peptide. It is an antimicrobial peptide that through research has eradicated various pathogens such as bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites [1,2,3,4].
This peptide represents the series of the very first amphipathic alpha-helical peptide separated from a human. LL-37 is produced by a variety of cells, including neutrophils, monocytes, mast cells, and epithelial cells [1,2,3,4,5].
It plays a crucial role in the initial line of protection against infection as well as the systemic attack of viruses at sites of swelling as well as injuries. Cytotoxic to both typical as well as microbial eukaryotic cells, LL-37 is substantially immune to proteolytic destruction in remedy .
