    • Hemolytic Activity

      • [Ref.23124352] In the hemolytic assay, HaA4 peptide evidenced no hemolytic activity against mouse red blood cells, even at high concentrations, and thus suggesting that the peptide may not be detrimental to eukaryotic cells.
    • Cytotoxicity

      • [Ref.23124352] The cytotoxicity is not found in a dose dependent manner.
