    • Anatomical structure: keratinocyte

      • Keratinocyte synthesis and processing of cathelicidin contribute to skin innate immunity by forming a direct antimicrobial defense barrier that supplements circulating immune cells. [1]

      Influenced by:

      • VDR
        in keratinocyte
        • We provide evidence that the CAMP gene is a direct target of the transcription factor vitamin D receptor (VDR) that mediates the strong up-regulation of CAMP in response to treatment of cells with vitamin D3 [2]
    • Anatomical structure: neutrophil_granulocyte
