Gene: Camp (cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide) Mus musculus
Symbol: Camp
Name: cathelicidin antimicrobial peptide
Description: This gene encodes a member of the cathelicidin family of antimicrobial peptides that play an important role in the defense against microbial infection. The encoded preproprotein undergoes proteolytic processing to generate a mature polypeptide before secretion by host cells such as neutrophils, epithelial cells and macrophages. Mice lacking the encoded protein exhibit increased susceptibility to group A streptococcus and Escherichia coli infections. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2015]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CAP18; cathelin-like protein; cathelin-related antimicrobial peptide; CLP; Cnlp; Cramp; FALL39; MCLP
