http://www.jimmunol.org/content/178/5/3116.short
Mammals have four peptidoglycan recognition proteins (PGRPs or PGLYRPs), which are secreted innate immunity pattern recognition molecules with effector functions. In this study, we demonstrate that human PGLYRP-1, PGLYRP-3, PGLYRP-4, and PGLYRP-3:4 have Zn2+-dependent bactericidal activity against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria at physiologic Zn2+ concentrations found in serum, ...
