This peptide is a rat homologue of the human cathelicidin LL-37. Rat cathelicidin-related antimicrobial peptide (rCRAMP) was identified in granulocytes, thymus, testis, lung, mouth mucosa, tongue, oesophagus, colon, caecum and small intestine. The rCRAMP peptide is present in specific CNS regions and may play a role in the innate immunity of the CNS. rCRAMP exhibits pro-healing activity in stomach.
