This antimicrobial peptide Human Beta-Defensin-2 specific for Gram-Negative Bacteria and effective for Candida albicans was originally isolated from skin cells from Psoriasis-patients. The expression of hBD-2 by skin cells is a direct response to a local infection by Pseudomonas aeruginosa or other bacteria. Peptide LL-37 and hBD-2 might be able to protect the skin of patients with psoriasis and both peptides may be involved in the pathogenesis of psoriasis.
Additionally beta-Defensin-2 is suspected to play a distinct role in Crohn’s disease.
Beta-Defensin-2 (human) offered from PeptaNova is a chemical synthesized peptide of highest purity for medical and biological research. 4338-s (0.1 mg) Beta-Defensin-2 manufactured by Peptide Institute, Inc. is available for prompt delivery ex stock Germany.
