Related Product Information for
anti-BD-2 antibody
Defensins (alpha and beta) are cationic peptides with a broad spectrum of antimicrobial activity that comprise an important arm of the innate immune system. The alpha-defensins are distinguished from the beta-defensins by the pairing of their three disulfide bonds. To date, six human beta-defensins have been identified; BD-1, BD-2, BD-3, BD-4, BD-5 and BD-6. beta-defensins are expressed on some leukocytes and at epithelial surfaces. In addition to their direct antimicrobial activities, they can act as chemoattractants towards immature dendritic cells and memory T cells. The beta-defensin proteins are expressed as the C-terminal portion of precursors and are released by proteolytic cleavage of a signal sequence and in some cases, a propeptide sequence. beta-defensins contain a six-cysteine motif that forms three intra-molecular disulfide bonds.
Applications Tested/Suitable for anti-BD-2 antibody
ELISA (EIA), Western Blot (WB)
Application Notes for anti-BD-2 antibody
Western Blot: To detect hBD-2 by Western Blot analysis this antibody can be used at a concentration of 0.1- 0.2 ìg/ml. Used in conjunction with compatible secondary reagents the detection limit for recombinant hBD-2 is 1.5-3.0 ng/lane, under either reducing or non-reducing conditions

NCBI Summary for BD-2
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, Oct 2014]
UniProt Comments for BD-2
Function: Has antibacterial activity


Subcellular location: Secreted.

Tissue specificity: Expressed in the skin and respiratory tract.

Induction: By inflammation.

Sequence similarities: Belongs to the beta-defensin family. LAP/TAP subfamily.
