Drosocin is a 19-mer cationic antimicrobial peptide from Drosophila melanogaster. In Drosophila native drosocin carries a disaccharide moiety attached to a threonine residue in mid-chain position. This synthetic drosocin peptide of identical amino acid sequence without the disaccharide has an activity several times lower than the native compound.
