Parotid Histidine-rich Peptide with antifungal and wound healing activities

The polypeptide Histatin 5 belongs to the group of antifungal activities and inhibits Candida albicans, an opportunistic fungus in a very efficient manner. The 24 residue peptide was originally isolated from human saliva. New studies show that Histatin 5 plays an important role in the oral wound healing process and seems to be the major wound-closure stimulating factor in human saliva. Histatin 5 offered from PeptaNova is a fully synthetic peptide of high purity.
