Characterisation and expression profile of the bovine cathelicidin gene repertoire in mammary tissue

Abstract

Cathelicidins comprise a major group of host-defence peptides. Conserved across a wide range of species, they have several functions related to host defence. Only one cathelicidin has been found in humans but several cathelicidin genes occur in the bovine genome. We propose that these molecules may have a protective role against mastitis. The aim of this… (More)
