The Bcg/Ity/Lsh locus in the mouse genome regulates macrophage activation for antimicrobial activity against intracellular pathogens, and the positional cloning of this locus identified the Nramp1 (natural resistance-associated macrophage protein) gene. Nramp2 was initially isolated as a homologue of Nramp1. Recently, the rat divalent metal transporter DMT1… CONTINUE READING
