Defensins are a family of microbicidal and cytotoxicpeptides thought to be involved in host defense. They are abundantin the granules of neutrophils and also found in the epithelia ofmucosal surfaces such as those of the intestine, respiratory tract,urinary tract, and vagina. Members of the defensin family arehighly similar in protein sequence and distinguished by a conservedcysteine motif. The protein encoded by this gene, defensin, alpha3, is found in the microbicidal granules of neutrophils and likelyplays a role in phagocyte-mediated host defense. Several alphadefensin genes are clustered on chromosome 8. This gene differsfrom defensin, alpha 1 by only one amino acid. This gene and thegene encoding defensin, alpha 1 are both subject to copy numbervariation.
