1 Formats Available
Negative Isotype Controls
Defensin beta 1 (BD-1) is a secreted cationic antimicrobial peptide and member of the beta-defensin family, expressed at epithelial surfaces, which plays an important role in innate immunity.
Studies have shown that the activity of BD-1 is compromised in patients with Cystic Fibrosis due to salt-dependent inactivation.
Purified recombinant protein - lyophilised
Reconstitute with 200ul distilled water Care should be taken during reconstitution as the protein may appear as a film at the bottom of the vial. Bio-Rad recommend that the vial is gently mixed after reconstitution.
