Abstract

Mycoplasma gallisepticum (MG) is an important pathogen of poultry worldwide that causes chronic respiratory disease (CRD) in chickens and infectious sinusitis in turkeys. Vaxsafe MG (strain ts-11) is a live attenuated temperature sensitive vaccine that has been proven to be effective in controlling ...

Abstract

Glutathione-S-transferases (GSTs) are multifunctional phase II detoxification enzymes that catalyze the attachment of electrophilic substrates to glutathione, and play an important role in protecting organisms against the toxicity of reactive oxygen species. In this study, two distinct sigma-class...

Abstract

Piwil was an important regulator gene in germ cell division during gonadal development. Two Piwi-like genes, Piwil1 and Piwil2, were first cloned from T. fasciatus. The full-length cDNAs of Piwil1 and Piwil2 were of 2933 and 3394 bp, respectively. Piwil1 and Piwil2 possessed an open reading frame...

Abstract

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play important roles in fish innate immune and are involved in the defense process of bacteria invasion. In the present study, the full-length cDNA of TLR3 from the sea perch, Lateolabrax japonicus, was cloned and characterized. The full length of LjTLR3 cDNA was 3265 bp...

Abstract

The mammalian sterile 20-like (MST) family, which belongs to the serine/threonine protein kinase superfamily, has five members that can be found in mammals: STK3 (also called MST2), STK4 (MST1), STK24 (MST3), STK25 (YSK1 or SOK1), and STK26 (MST4). The MST kinases have key roles in apoptosis,...

Abstract

Galectin-9 is a b-galactoside-binding tandem repeat galectin that regulates many cellular functions, ranging from cell adhesion to pathogen recognition. In spite of extensive study of mammalian galectin importance in immune system, little is known about that of fish. To study the normal expression...

Abstract

C-type lectin plays an important role in the innate immune response of crustaceans including Portunus trituberculatus which is an important marine species. In the present study, we cloned the full length of a C-type lectin (designated as PtCTL4) from P. trituberculatus via 3′RACE. The full length...

Abstract

The innate immune signaling adapter, Mitochondrial antiviral signaling protein (MAVS) coordinates the signals received from two independent RLRs (RIG-1 and MDA5) to induce IFN & interferon stimulatory genes (ISGs). In the present study, we report identification of an orthologue of MAVS from Lates...

Abstract

Vibrio alginolyticus, a bacterial pathogen in fish and humans, expresses a type III secretion system (T3SS) that is critical for pathogen virulence and disease development. However, little is known about the associated effectors (T3SEs) and their physiological role. In this study, the T3SE gene ...
