Expression profile of drosomycin-like defensin in oral epithelium and oral carcinoma cell lines.


OBJECTIVE Drosomycin-like defensin (DLD) is a recently discovered antimicrobial peptide mainly active against filamentous fungi. The present study investigated the expression profile of DLD in oral epithelium and oral squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) cell lines. METHODS Tissue sections of human oral mucosa, keratinocytes derived from oral mucosa (NOK) and… (More)
