DEFB118 encodes a member of the beta subfamily of defensins. Additionally we are shipping DEFB118 Proteins (8) and and many more products for this protein.
DEFB118 may contribute to epididymal innate immunity and provide antimicrobial activity against microorganisms attacking sperm in the male and female reproductive tracts.
This gene encodes a member of the beta subfamily of defensins. Beta-defensins are antimicrobial peptides that protect tissues and organs from infection by a variety of microorganisms. Expression of this gene is regulated by androgen, and the encoded protein binds to sperm and exhibits antibacterial activity. This gene is found in a cluster with other beta-defensin genes on the long arm of chromosome 20.
