Antimicrobial Polypeptide And Utilization Thereof


The present invention provides an artificially synthesized antimicrobial polypeptide that does not occur in nature and an antimicrobial agent comprising this polypeptide as the main component. This polypeptide contains in its peptide chain one or more types of nuclear localization signal sequences (NLSs) and/or one or more units of sequences prepared by partially modifying the NLS(s). The one or more units of NLSs and/or modified NLSs contain at least 5 amino acid residues in total and amount to 30% or more of the total amino acid residues constituting the peptide chain.
