Expression of the bactericidal peptide beta-defensin 5 (BNBD5) is strongly induced by bacterial infections of the udder (mastitis). In situ hybridizations showed that bacteria elicit a strong, locally restricted expression of BNBD5 in mammary epithelial cells (MEC). We defined the BNBD5 promoter by primer extension and showed with reporter gene assays in(More)
