Abstract

Members of Prx family function as an important players in host defense against oxidative stress, and modulate immune responses. In the current study, two complete Prx sequences were isolated from bivalve Anodonta woodiana and respectively named AwPrx4a and AwPrx4b. Regulative characterizations of...

Abstract

Nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain (NOD)-like receptors (NLRs) are a large group of cytoplasmic pattern recognition receptors (PRRs), which play an important role in pathogen recognition and regulation of innate immune response. In fish, NLRs are divided into three distinct subfamilies:...

Abstract

TLR25 is a new member of TLR1 family that is only identified in teleosts, but its function in immune response is still unclear. In current study, the coding sequence (CDS) of TLR25 was cloned from Schizothorax prenanti (named spTLR25), and spTLR25 is 2454 bp in length and coding a protein of 817...

Abstract

Adiponectin (ADP), a regulator of the innate immune system, plays a role in the progression of inflammation and metabolic disorders in mammals. However, the role of ADP in fish is poorly understood. Here, we cloned the cDNA sequence of a ADP homolog (PaADP) gene from ayu. Multiple sequence...

Abstract

The complement system plays an important role in immune regulation and acts as the first line of defense against any pathogenic attack. To comprehend the red sea bream (Pagrus major) immune response, three complement genes, namely, pmC1r, pmMASP and pmC3, belonging to the classical, lectin and...

Abstract

Ferritins are ubiquitous proteins with a pivotal role in iron storage and homeostasis, and in host defense responses during infection by pathogens in several organisms, including mollusks. In this study, we characterized two ferritin homologues in the red abalone Haliotis rufescens, a species of...

Abstract

In mammals, both runt-related transcription factor 3 (RUNX3) and c-Myc are the downstream effectors of transforming growth factor-β1 (TGF-β1) signaling to mediate various cellular responses. However, information of their interaction especially in fish is lacking. In the present study, grass carp (...

Abstract

Fibrinogen-related proteins (FREPs) play important roles in innate immunity by recognizing pathogen associated molecular patterns on pathogenic bacteria surfaces via conserved fibrinogen-like domain (FBG). In this paper, the full-length cDNA of Apostichopus japonicus FREP (designated as AjFREP) was ...

Abstract

Interferon stimulated gene 15 (ISG15) is an IFN inducible ubiquitin-like protein and plays a critical role in immune response against viral infection. In this study, an ISG15 gene (AsISG15) was cloned and characterized from the marine fish black seabream, Acanthopagrus schlegelii. The full-length...
