Gene : DEFB121 Homo sapiens

Name  ? defensin beta 121 Cytological Location  20q11.21
Brief Description  defensin beta 121
Description  This gene encodes a member of the beta subfamily of defensins. Beta-defensins are antimicrobial peptides that protect tissues and organs from infection by a variety of microorganisms. This gene is found in a cluster with other beta-defensin genes on the long arm of chromosome 20. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
