Probably participates in a plant defense mechanism. Has antibiotic activity. Has a diuretic effect. Has a uterotonic effect in humans. Active against the Gram-positive S.aureus with a minimum inhibition concentration of approximately 0.2 microM. Relatively ineffective against Gram-negative bacteria such as E.coli and P.aeruginosa. Inhibitory effect on the growth and development of larvae from H.punctigera. The unmodified form has hemolytic activity, the oxidized form lacks hemolytic activity. If the protein is linearized, hemolytic activity is lost.
