Summary
Predicted to enable protein homodimerization activity. Acts upstream of or within response to bacterium and response to xenobiotic stimulus. Located in extracellular space. Orthologous to human DEFA1B (defensin alpha 1B); DEFA3 (defensin alpha 3); and DEFA6 (defensin alpha 6). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
