Heparin binding antimicrobial proteins in human plasma

Project Details


This project aims to investigate endotoxin-neutralising mechanisms in blood. One focus is the influence of anticoagulation on the effect of endotoxins or on endotoxin-neutralising factors in the blood. Furthermore, so-called host defence peptides (HDPs) will be isolated from human whole blood and their influence on the activity of endotoxins will be investigated. Subsequently, the HDPs will be characterised with regard to their molar mass.
