Eicosanoid actions in insect cellular immune functions
Insects are more or less constantly challenged with a daunting array of pathogenic organisms, including viruses, bacteria, fungi, protozoans as well as various metazoan parasites and parasitoids. AtExpand

Eicosanoid Actions in Insect Immunity
Insects express 3 lines of protection from infections and invasions. Their cuticles and peritrophic membranes are physical barriers. Infections and invasions are quickly recognized within insectExpand

Eicosanoids mediate nodulation reactions to bacterial infections in adults of the cricket, Gryllus assimilis.
Nodulation is the temporally and quantitatively most important cellular defense reaction to bacterial infections in insects. Inhibition of eicosanoid biosynthesis in adults of the cricket, GryllusExpand

Eicosanoids: Exploiting Insect Immunity to Improve Biological Control Programs
Insects, like all invertebrates, express robust innate, but not adaptive, immune reactions to infection and invasion. Insect immunity is usually resolved into three major components. The integumentExpand

Eicosanoids mediate nodulation responses to bacterial infections in larvae of the tenebrionid beetle, Zophobas atratus
Nodulation is the temporally and quantitatively predominant cellular defense response to bacterial infection in insects and other invertebrates. Inhibition of eicosanoid biosynthesis in larvae of theExpand

Eicosanoids Mediate Nodulation Responses to Bacterial Infections in Larvae of the Silkmoth, Bombyx mori
Abstract 1) Nodulation is the first, and qualitatively predominant, cellular defense reaction to bacterial infections in insects and other invertebrates; 2) treating silkworms, Bombyx mori, with theExpand

The influence of bacterial species and intensity of infections on nodule formation in insects.
Nodulation is the predominant cellular immune reaction to bacterial infection in insects. Nodulation is a complex process involving an unknown number of discrete cellular actions. Currently, there isExpand

Eicosanoids mediate microaggregation reactions to bacterial challenge in isolated insect hemocyte preparations.
Nodule formation is the quantitatively predominant insect cellular defense reaction to bacterial challenges, responsible for clearing the largest proportion of infecting bacteria from circulation. ItExpand

Calsenilin Is a Substrate for Caspase-3 That Preferentially Interacts with the Familial Alzheimer's Disease-associated C-terminal Fragment of Presenilin 2*
Calsenilin is a member of the recoverin family of neuronal calcium-binding proteins that we have previously shown to interact with presenilin 1 (PS1) and presenilin 2 (PS2) holoproteins. TheExpand

Biochemical and immunocytochemical characterization of calsenilin in mouse brain
Mutations in the presenilin 1 and 2 genes cause the majority of early onset familial forms of Alzheimer's disease. Here we describe the biochemical and immunohistochemical characterization ofExpand
