  1. 1. The human antimicrobial peptide hCAP18 in epithelial defense

    Författare :Margareta Frohm Nilsson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Innate immunity; host defense; antimicrobial peptide; hCAP 18; LL-37; epithelia; wounds; breast cancer;

    Sammanfattning : Gene-encoded antimicrobial peptides serve a protective role in host defense. They are multifunctional effector molecules in innate immunity - the nonadaptive immune system -with the capacity to kill a broad spectrum of microorganisms. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Sorting and processing of neutrophil granule proteins

    Författare :Elinor Bülow; Avdelningen för hematologi och transfusionsmedicin; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; secretion; Haematology; extracellular fluids; Hematologi; extracellulära vätskor; cell-specific retention; chimeric; lysosome-related organelles; secretory pathway; propeptide of MPO; azurophil granules;

    Sammanfattning : The neutrophil granulocytes have a critical role in innate immunity in particular through phagocytosis of microorganisms. Their cytoplasmic granule subsets store digestive enzymes and antibiotic proteins that are released during this event. LÄS MER
