Antimicrobial peptides are produced by plants and most organisms throughout the animal kingdom including humans. Antimicrobial peptides protect against a broad range of infectious agents, as bacteria, fungi, and viruses. The amphibian skin is an especially rich source of antimicrobial peptides. See also the product families: Hepcidins LL-37 and Fragments Tuftsin and Analogs (subfamily).

Tachyplesin I is an antimicrobial peptide originally detected in the extract of hemocytes from the Japanese horseshoe crab. It inhibits the growth of both Gramnegative and -positive bacteria and forms a complex with bacterial lipopolysaccharides. These results suggest that this peptide belongs to the family of arthropodous peptide antibiotics. Furthermore this peptide has been shown to have antiviral activity against vesicular stomatitis virus, influenza A virus and HIV-1.
