  • a Named by Vosloo et al. (34).

  • b Conventional one-letter abbreviations are used for amino acids, except that O was used for ornithine. Lowercase one-letter abbreviations indicate d-amino acid residues. The sequence data obtained from Tang et al. (29) and the identities were confirmed by our group (34, 35).

  • c Detected monoisotopic Mr of peptides determined from purified peptides using high-resolution time of flight-electrospray mass spectrometry (TOF-ESMS) (refer to Table S1 in the supplemental material).
