An evaluation of the tissue expression of a bovine dodecapeptide bactenecin in the adult and fetal animal


Various antimicrobial cationic peptides have been isolated from the granules of bovine neutrophils. One of these peptides is only 12 amino acids in length and is called a dodecapeptide bactenecin. A monoclonal antibody to the synthetic bovine dodecapeptide bactenecin was produced, characterised and used in an immunofluorescent assay to assess the peptide's… (More)
