    FAMILY
  • beta-defensin family
  • CATEGORY immunity/defense
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • cysteine-rich cationic polypeptides that are important in the host immunologic response to invading microorganisms
  • exerted antimicrobial activity against a broad spectrum of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria
  • having physiological role that may include interference with lipopolysaccharide -action on macrophages, a function formerly thought to be restricted to the family of cathelicidins, a structurally unrelated group of antimicrobial peptides
