Antimicrobial Peptides in Human Sepsis.
Aachen, Germany. In Front Immunol, 2014
Human neutrophil peptides (HNP) 1-3 and human beta-defensins (HBDs) 1-3 are some of the most important defensins in humans.
Neuropsin--a possible modulator of synaptic plasticity.
Ikoma, Japan. In J Chem Neuroanat, 2011
Among such proteases, neuropsin, a kallikrein gene-related (KLK) endoprotease, appears to have a significant plasticity function that has been analyzed primarily in the hippocampal Schaffer-collateral pathway.
Neuropsin cleaves EphB2 in the amygdala to control anxiety.
Leicester, United Kingdom. In Nature, 2011
the serine protease neuropsin is critical for stress-related plasticity in the amygdala by regulating the dynamics of the EphB2-NMDA-receptor interaction, the expression of Fkbp5 and anxiety-like behaviour
