Calprotectin-Mediated Zinc Chelation as a Biostatic Mechanism in Host Defence

The S-100 Ca2+ binding protein, calprotectin, isolated from neutrophil lysates, has been reported to exhibit zinc reversible biostatic activity in vitro. We verified these findings with C. albicans and investigated whether the growth inhibition resulted from zinc deprivation due to chelation by calprotectin
