Polypeptides from Bos taurus bone marrow (BBM) were purified for the first time using ultrafiltration and two-stage ion-exchange chromatography. Extract of BBM contained 25 different polypeptides with molecular masses in the range 1027.84–9916.32 Da. The water-soluble fraction of BBM contained large amounts of charged polypeptides. The isolated peptides and proteins possessed dose-dependent antimicrobial activity against pathogenic Candida albicans and Escherichia coli.
