Defensins form a family of microbicidal and cytotoxic peptides made by neutrophils. Defensins are short processed peptide molecules that are classified by structure into three groups: alpha-defensins beta-defensins and theta-defensins. All beta-defensin genes are densely clustered in four to five syntenic chromosomal regions. Chromosome 8p23 contains at least two copies of the duplicated beta-defensin cluster. This duplication results in two identical copies of defensin beta 104 DEFB104A and DEFB104B in head-to-head orientation. This gene DEFB104A represents the more centromeric copy.
