General description

β-defensin-3 (BD-3) is an anti-microbial peptide produced by airway epithelial cells, lung-derived epithelial cells and keratinocytes. It has a molecular weight of 5kDa. The gene encoding this protein is localized on human chromosome 8p23.1. Recombinant human β-defensin-3 (BD-3) is an antimicrobial peptide, which belongs to the distinct family of β-defenisns. Recombinant human BD-3 is a 5.1 kDa protein containing 45 amino acid residues.
Chemical structure: peptide

Biochem/physiol Actions

β-defensin-3 (BD-3) associates with bacterial products which reduce the effect of inflammatory cytokine responses. The protein has been shown to stimulate the production of interferon-α and activate monocytes through toll-like receptors 1 and 2. It antagonizes the activation of C-X-C motif chemokine receptor 4 (CXCR4).

Physical form

Sterile filtered and lyophilized with no additives.


Reconstitute in 10 mM Acetic acid to a concentration of 0.1-1.0 mg/mL. This solution can then be diluted into other aqueous buffers.
Centrifuge the vial prior to opening. Avoid freeze-thaw cycles.

The growing public health problem of infections caused by multiresistant Gram-positive bacteria, in particular Staphylococcus aureus, prompted us to screen human epithelia for endogenous S. aureus-killing factors. A novel 5-kDa, nonhemolytic antimicrobial peptide (human beta-defensin-3, hBD-3) was isolated from human...
