Antibacterial proteins are important participants in the innate immunity system. Elafin and SLPI are the whey acidic protein (WAP) motif proteins with both antibacterial activity and antiprotease activity, and their role in innate immunity is under intense investigation. We cloned two novel antibacterial WAP motif proteins from mice, SWAM1 and SWAM2. SWAM1(More)
The genes within the dihydropyrimidinase-related protein (DRP) family, were originally identified in humans by their homology to dihydropyrimidinase (DHP). Four members of this gene family, DRP-1, -2, -3 and -4, are expressed mainly in the fetal and neonatal brains of mammals and chickens, and have been implicated as intracellular signal transducers in the(More)
