Beta-Defensin-3 (HBD-3/MBD-3) control peptideCatalogue number: DEF03-P
|Application||Control peptide for DEF03-A and DEF03-S antibodies|
Human defensins are Cys-rich antimicrobial peptides which specifically react against Gram-negative bacteria. Originally defensins were isolated from hemolysates, but they can also be found on the cell surface of epithelia of the urogenital tract, lung, and trachea. In leukocytes defensins are stored in granules being released into phagolysosomes for the destruction of incorporated micro-organisms. Amino acid sequences of alpha-defensins 1-4 (HNP1-4) and beta-Defensins 1-4 (HBD1-4) are known. Mature Human Beta-Defensin-3 (HBD-3) shares app. 22% aa sequence homology with HBD-1. Mixture of synthetic peptides 15 aa near C-terminus of the mature HBD-3 (LPKEEQIGKCSTRGR) and 13 aa of N-terminal MBD-3.
