    Abstract
    Antimicrobial peptides have been a major research subject since the rise of antimicrobial resistance as a major public health problem. These molecules are considered a potential therapeutic source of antibiotics with broad-spectrum activity against microorganisms. Two antimicrobial peptides were isolated from the mucus of the Limacus flavus slug. The mucus was obtained by thermal shock, lyophilized and extracted with acetic acid. The supernatant was prefractionated in Sep-Pak and shortly thereafter fractionated by reverse-phase high-performance liquid chromatography. The manually...
