This family consists of several caerin 1 proteins from Litoria species, Australian tree frogs. The caerin 1 peptides are among the most powerful of the broad-spectrum antibiotic amphibian peptides [PMID: 12717721]. These peptides are excreted from amphibian skin, and can interact with and disrupt bacterial membranes, leading to the permeabilisation of the cell membrane.
