Scientists identified 48 potential AMPs in dragon's blood .
These antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are widely expressed short peptides, which have been isolated from insects, plants, marine organisms and mammals, including Komodo dragons show strong antimicrobial activity against both Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria.
Komodo dragons, which are native to parts of Indonesia, ambush large animals like water buffalo and deer with a bite to the throat. If their prey does not fall immediately, the dragons rarely continue the fight. Instead, they back away and let the mix of mild venom and dozens of pathogenic bacteria found in their saliva finish the job.
Scientists identified 48 potential AMPs in dragon's blood that had never been seen before.
