Peroxiredoxins (Prdx) are thiol specific antioxidant enzymes that play a pivotal role in cellular oxidative stress by reducing toxic peroxide compounds into nontoxic products. In this study, we(More)
Carboxypeptidases (CPs) are proteases that hydrolyze C-terminal peptide bonds. They are involved in regulating the complement system of the immune system. Here, we report the molecular(More)
Serine proteases and their inhibitors play vital roles in diverse biological processes. In this study, we identified and characterized cDNA coding for a Kunitz-type serine protease inhibitor (SPI),(More)
The basic function of transferrin is to bind iron (III) ions in the medium and to deliver them to the locations where they are required for metabolic processes. It also takes part in the host immune(More)
The complement components C1r and C1s play a crucial role in innate immunity via activation of the classical complement cascade system. As initiators of the pathogen-induced signaling cascade, C1r(More)
The iron-withholding strategy of innate immunity is an effective antimicrobial defense mechanism that combats microbial infection by depriving microorganisms of Fe3+, which is important for their(More)
The globular C1q (gC1q) domain containing proteins, commonly referred as C1q domain containing (C1qDC) proteins, are an essential family of proteins involved in various innate immune responses. In(More)
