21 The combination of cryptdin
2 and ampicillin was also found as extremely effective, which indicated in vitro synergy between the two agents.
For instance, NOD2-dependent responses to bacterial peptidoglycan fragments can promote Paneth cells to express antimicrobial cryptdin
Developmental regulation of cryptdin
, a corticostatin/defensin precursor mRNA in mouse small intestinal crypt epithelium.
33) Some cryptdin
genes are apparently duplicated without any altered amino acid residues in mature peptides.
3 forms anion selective channels in cytoplasmic membranes of human embryonic kidney cells.
The granules contain a number of proteins associated with roles in host defense including lysozymes, secretory phospholipase A2, and alpha-defensins termed cryptdins
In other studies, Cryptosporidium parvum infection activated both CD4+ and CD8+ gamma/delta T cells, and Giardia species stimulated the release of several effector molecules, including defensins, cryptdins
, and indolicidin.
