This issue of Antibiotics is dedicated to the topic of antimicrobial peptides (AMPs), which are now recognized as important mediators of innate defense against microbial infections. Primary research manuscripts and review articles dealing with AMPs that emphasize their structure-function, biosynthesis and regulation, evolution, contribution to host defense, immune-modulatory activities, contributions to the pathophysiology of diseases, development of AMPs as therapeutic agents or mechanisms of action, as well as systems used by microbes to resist their antimicrobial action and how such resistance contributes to microbial pathogenesis, are invited.Submitted manuscripts will be peer-reviewed to ensure that the issue contains high quality contributions. Collectively, this issue will provide the readership with the most up-to-date information on AMPs.
