Since treatment options are limited there is an unmet need for new therapeutic approaches. Defensins are cationic peptides, produced by various human tissues, which serve as antimicrobial effectors of the immune system. Furthermore, some defensins are proteolytically cleaved, resulting in the generation of smaller fragments with increased activity. Together, this led us to hypothesize that defensin-derived peptides are natural human inhibitors of virus infection with low toxicity. We screened several human defensin HNP4- and HD5-derived peptides and found HD5(1-9) to be antiviral without toxicity at high concentrations. HD5(1-9) inhibited HCMV cellular attachment and thereby entry and was active against primary as well as a multiresistant HCMV isolate. Moreover, cysteine and arginine residues were identified to mediate the antiviral activity of HD5(1-9). Altogether, defensin-derived peptides, in particular HD5(1-9), qualify as promising candidates for further development as a novel class of HCMV entry inhibitors.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <dcterms:issued>2020</dcterms:issued> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2022-01-21T11:58:50Z</dc:date> <dc:contributor>Businger, Ramona</dc:contributor> <dc:contributor>Schindler, Michael</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Hamprecht, Klaus</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Müller, Patrick</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Schindler, Michael</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Preiß, Hannes</dc:contributor> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <bibo:uri rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/handle/123456789/56289"/> <dc:contributor>Truffault, Vincent</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Ruetalo, Natalia</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Ruetalo, Natalia</dc:contributor> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dc:contributor>Ehmann, Dirk</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Simon, Claudia</dc:creator> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
