Identification and expression of a novel marsupial cathelicidin from the tammar wallaby (Macropus eugenii)

Carman, Rebecca; Old, Julie M; Baker, Michelle L; Jacques, Nicholas; Deane, Elizabeth


Cathelicidins are important components of the innate immune system and have been identified in skin and epithelia of a range of mammals. In this study molecular techniques, including RACE-PCR, were used to identify the full cDNA sequence of a cathelicidin gene, MaeuCath8, from the Australian marsupial, the tammar wallaby, Macropus eugenii. This cathelicidin was not homologous to other such genes previously isolated from a tammar wallaby mammary gland EST library, however, it did contain 4...[Show more]
