- ... A biocide enhancer is a chemical that can enhance the efficacy of a biocide or reduce its dosage. In this work, a novel peptide was tested as a biocide enhancer. A chemically synthesized 14-mer peptide (Peptide A), which was found non-biocidal, has an amino acid sequence derived from sea anemone Actinia equina that possesses a biofilm-free exterior. Peptide A at 180 ppb (w/w) or 100 nM enhanced 10 ...
