Both hemocytes and fat body from larvae of Manduca sexta, which have been injected with inducers of antibacterial protein synthesis, contain immunoreactive lysozyme. However, fat body is a richer source and has been demonstrated to synthesize and release lysozyme and cecropin-like peptides (bactericidins) in vitro. Fat body secretion of lysozyme and(More)
The exons 1, 2 and flanking region of growth differentiation factor 9 (GDF9) gene in five randomly selected does of Jining Grey, Boer and Liaoning Cashmere goats were amplified and analyzed. Thirteen nucleotide differences were identified in GDF9 gene between sheep (AF078545) and goats. Four SNPs (G3288A in intron 1, G423A, A959C [Gln320Pro] and G1189A(More)
Injection of bacteria and bacterial cell walls into larvae of the tobacco hornworm elicits a rapid, specific depletion of plasmatocytes from circulation. Plasmatocyte depletion in response to injection of bacteria is dose dependent with a threshold for response between 10(3)-10(4) bacteria per insect and a maximal depletion at greater than 10(7) bacteria(More)
A new graphical representation for protein sequences is introduced in this paper. We firstly construct a 3D space discrete point set for amino acids of protein sequences based on three physicochemical properties of amino acids. Then, we use a cubic Bezier spline curve to interpolate these discrete points to represent protein sequences. Different from many(More)
Little is known of the participation of insect hemolymph proteins in wound healing and clot formation. We describe the assembly of purified hemolymph protein from the tobacco hornworm into an extended fibrous coagulum in the absence of hemocytes. This coagulum resembles the clot formed from bovine fibrinogen and thrombin. Structural components of the(More)

The two-photon transition c ð3686Þ ! J=c is studied in a sample of 1:06 Â 10 8 c ð3686Þ decays collected by the BESIII detector. The branching fraction is measured to be ð3:1 AE 0:6ðstatÞ þ0:8 À1:0 ðsystÞÞ Â 10 À4 using J=c ! e þ e À and J=c ! þ À decays, and its upper limit is estimated to be 4:5 Â 10 À4 at the 90% confidence level. This work represents(More)
