D12.776.124.486.379.249
RDF Unique Identifier: https://id.nlm.nih.gov/mesh/D047150
Scope note: One of several basic proteins released from EOSINOPHIL cytoplasmic granules. Eosinophil cationic protein is a 21-kDa cytotoxic peptide with a pI of 10.9. Although eosinophil cationic protein is considered a member of the RNAse A superfamily of proteins, it has only limited RNAse activity.
