InnateDB Annotation
Summary
Macrophage iron regulatory proteins Aco1 and Ireb2 are protective against Salmonella by promoting the induction of Lcn2, a host antimicrobial factor that inhibits bacterial uptake of iron-laden siderophores, and by suppressing the ferritin iron pool.
InnateDB Annotation from Orthologs
Summary
[Homo sapiens] LCN2 is secreted by the urinary tract mucosa in response to uropathogenic E. coli challenge and acts in innate immune defences as a colonization barrier.
