General Information

Product name Anti-DCD Antibody
Short Description Rabbit polyclonal to DCD
Description This antimicrobial gene encodes a secreted protein that is subsequently processed into mature peptides of distinct biological activities. The C-terminal peptide is constitutively expressed in sweat and has antibacterial and antifungal activities. The N-terminal peptide, also known as diffusible survival evasion peptide, promotes neural cell survival under conditions of severe oxidative stress. A glycosylated form of the N-terminal peptide may be associated with cachexia (muscle wasting) in cancer patients. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms.

Function DCD-1 displays antimicrobial activity thereby limiting skin infection by potential pathogens in the first few hours after bacterial colonization, Highly effective against E,coli, E,faecalis, S,aureus and C,albicans, Optimal pH and salt concentration resemble the conditions in sweat, Also exhibits proteolytic activity, cleaving on the C-terminal side of Arg and, to a lesser extent, Lys residues.
Cellular Localization Secreted
Tissue Specificity Specifically and constitutively expressed in eccrine sweat gland cells, secreted into the sweat at a concentration of 1-10 micrograms/ml
