FunctionDCD-1 displays antimicrobial activity thereby limiting skin infection by potential pathogens in the first few hours after bacterial colonization. Highly effective against E.coli, E.faecalis, S.aureus and C.albicans. Optimal pH and salt concentration resemble the conditions in sweat. Survival-promoting peptide promotes survival of neurons and displays phosphatase activity. It may bind IgG.
Tissue specificitySpecifically and constitutively expressed in eccrine sweat gland cells. Secreted into the sweat at a concentration of 1-10 micrograms/ml.
