Mixture of synthetic peptides (14 AA near N-terminus of the mature HBD-2, 14 AA near N-terminus of the mature rat ß-Defensin-2, and 17 AA near N-terminus of the mature mouse ß-Defensin-2) coupled to KLH for immunisation of rabbits
human, mouse or other beta β- and alpha α- defensins are expressed by neutrophils ( α- ), lymphocytes and epithelial cells. DEFA DEFB genes defend the host against pathogens. GENTAUR supplies anti-defensins, monclonals, polyclonals antisera and recombinant DEFs or peptides of defensin.
