Peptides that make bacteria RE coil: A peptide system designed to regulate antimicrobial intervention switches between antimicrobial and inactive forms. The regulator comprises two α-helical sequences. One of them, R coil, binds to microbial membranes and acts as an antimicrobial component, and is inactivated by the other, E coil, a membrane-inactive peptide (see picture).
