Endotoxin level: < 0.1 ng per ug of alpha defensin 1.
This product is an active protein and may elicit a biological response in vivo, handle with caution.
ReconstitutionThis protein should be reconstituted in water to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/ml. This solution can be diluted into other buffer solutions. The reconstituted protein should be stored in working aliquots at -20°C.
Defensin, alpha 1
Defensin, alpha 1, myeloid related sequence
Defensin, alpha 2
Myeloid related sequence
Neutrophil defensin 1
Neutrophil defensin 2
FunctionDefensin 1 and defensin 2 have antibacterial, fungicide and antiviral activities. Has antimicrobial activity against Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. Defensins are thought to kill microbes by permeabilizing their plasma membrane.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the alpha-defensin family.
