25517613 binding of HNP1 to affected bacterial toxins caused their local unfolding, potentiated their thermal melting and precipitation, exposed new regions for proteolysis, and increased susceptibility to collisional quenchers.
19169650 Data show that H. pylori induces alpha-defensin release from granulocytes, which may be important in local host response to H. pylori infection in gastroduodenal diseases.
2997278 DEFA1B encodes an antibacterial peptide that is bacteriocidal against S. aureus, E. coli, and P. aeruginosa.
