Abstract Antimicrobial peptides are intrinsic to the innate immune system in many organ systems, but little is known about their… Expand Mammalian antimicrobial proteins, such as defensins and cathelicidin, have stimulating effects on host leukocytes. Cathelin… Expand The cathelicidin peptides comprise one of several families of antimicrobial peptides that are found in neutrophils and epithelia… Expand Cathelicidins are a class of small cationic peptide antibiotics that are expressed in skin and in other epithelial cells and are… Expand BACKGROUND
Antibacterial peptides, such as defensins and LL-37, are natural bactericidal components similar in potency to classic… Expand ABSTRACT Human neutrophils contain two structurally distinct types of antimicrobial peptides, β-sheet defensins (HNP-1 to HNP-4… Expand Cathelicidins are the precursors of potent antimicrobial peptides that have been identified in several mammalian species. Prior… Expand The peptide FA-LL-37, previously termed FALL-39, was originally predicted from on ORF of a cDNA clone isolated from a human bone… Expand A 19 kDa protein was identified in specific granules of human neutrophils. A full‐length cDNA clone was isolated from a human CML… Expand Cathelin‐related genes are characterized by the presence of a prepro sequence which is highly conserved both within and between… Expand
