Bactericidal/permeability-increasing protein originates in both the testis and the epididymis and localizes in mouse spermatozoa

Abstract

Bactericidal/permeability-increasing protein (BPI) is an endogenous antibiotic protein with activity against gram-negative bacteria. In the present study, we examined the expression of BPI in postnatal mouse testes and epididymides as well as the subcellular localization within epididymal spermatozoa. Our results showed that, BPI mRNA was expressed in… (More)
