Histidine-rich glycoprotein exerts antibacterial activity.

Abstract

Histidine-rich glycoprotein (HRGP), an abundant heparin-binding protein found in plasma and thrombocytes, exerts antibacterial effects against Gram-positive bacteria (Enterococcus faecalis and Staphylococcus aureus) and Gram-negative bacteria (Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa). Fluorescence studies and electron microscopy to assess membrane… (More)
