Heparin-binding protein (HBP), also known as Azurocidin or cationic antimicrobial protein (CAP37), is a multifunctional protein with bactericidal and chemotactic properties, mainly present in neutrophils. secretory granules and azurophilic granules. Due to its broad antibacterial activity and promoting vascular leakage, it has become an emerging infectious disease-related biomarker.
