DEFB4A Gene

HGNC Family Defensins, Endogenous ligands
Name defensin, beta 4A
Description Defensins form a family of microbicidal and cytotoxic peptides made by neutrophils. Members of the defensin family are highly similar in protein sequence. This gene encodes defensin, beta 4, an antibiotic peptide which is locally regulated by inflammation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
