Abstract

We describe the isolation of naturally occurring human intestinal defensins HD-5 and HD-6 from ileal neobladder urine and ileal mucosa. Using an antibody-based detection assay, we found multiple N-terminally processed forms of HD-5. The predominant HD-5 forms in tissue were longer than those in neobladder urine (amino acid (aa) 23-94 and 29-94 versus aa 36-94, 56-94 and 63-94) suggesting that Paneth cells store prodefensin that is processed to mature defensin during or after degranulation. Search for mature HD-6 yielded aa 69-100 as the predominant form in both sources. The ileal neobladder is a promising model to study human Paneth cell secretion.
