DEFB118 encodes a member of the beta subfamily of defensins.
Showing 8 out of 8 products:
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.
