Abstract/OtherAbstract:
Antibacterial peptides and proteins maintain the sterility of the human urinary tract. A broad-spectrum antimicrobial protein, ribonuclease 7 (RNase 7), previously discovered to play a role in controlling the growth of bacteria on human skin, has now been shown to have an important antibacterial function in the human urinary tract.
