K4aqua- bacteria + K4

Antibacterial peptide K4 potential in aquaculture farms

Team 2: Reproduction and development of aquatic organisms: evolution, adaptation, regulations
2012 to 2014
Program type: 

The objective of this project is to evaluate the potential of the antibacterial peptide K4 (FR 0709057) particularly active against marine Vibrio in aquaculture farms. Targeted investigations will test its safety on various marine organisms, its effectiveness in the context of controlled infection and its persistence in the environment.

Works were financed by the Regional Council of Basse Normandie.
