AbstractThe intent of this chapter is to review proteins with anticancer and antimicrobial activities from various animal species. The proteins comprise venom proteins from snakes, scorpions, and bees; peptides from frogs and toads; bovine pancreas and frogs; and mammalian proteins and peptides including lactoferrin, cathelicidins, tumor necrosis factor, interferons, interleukins, and hormonal peptides. To avoid duplication of efforts, the medicinal applications of mammalian lectins and ribonucleases fall in the realm of other chapters in this book. The current progress and future work on animal constituents with medicinal activity depicted in this chapter would help to shed light on their clinical potentials or applications.
