Host defense peptide with strong antimicrobial activities.

CATH-2 (chicken) is one of four cathelicidins which have been identified in chickens. Cathelicidins constitute a family of host defense peptides (HDPs) and play an important role during the innate immune response and CATH-2 displays strong antimicrobial activities against many different pathogens including gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and fungi. In addition, CATH-2 has been shown to have immunomodulatory capacities.
