Brief introduction:

Cathelicidin is a multifunctional family of antimicrobial peptides found only in mammals, birds, and fish. Cathelicidin has a broad spectrum of antibacterial activity that is not only very strong for gram-positive bacteria, gram-negative bacteria, certain fungi and viruses, but also for many clinically resistant fine bacteria. In addition, cathelicidin has many other biological activities, such as chemotaxis to a variety of immune cells, induction of mast cell degranulation and histamine release, regulation of macrophage transcribing, promotion of wound healing, induction of angiogenesis, induction of apoptosis of mutant cell lines and activation of lymphocytes. With such a high level of activity, cathelicidin is a hot topic of international research. The development of cathelicidin has great clinical therapeutic value. Cathelicidin-bf is a new kind of antibacterial peptide separated from cobras.

Remarks: The products is restricted for lab reseach.
