Cloning and recombinant expression of a crustin-like gene from Chinese shrimp, Fenneropenaeus chinensis.
The difference of antimicrobial activity between recombinant CruFc and CshFc provides the evidence that the four-disulfide core domain of crustin may play an important role in its biological function. Expand
Discovery of the Genes in Response to White Spot Syndrome Virus (WSSV) Infection in Fenneropenaeus chinensis Through cDNA Microarray
The expression of housekeeping genes such as actin, elongation factor, and tubulin is not stable, and so these genes are not suitable as internal standards for semiquantitative RT-PCR when shrimp are challenged by WSSV, and triosephosphate isomerase was an ideal candidate of interstandards in this situation.

Construction of AFLP-based genetic linkage map for Zhikong scallop, Chlamys farreri Jones et Preston and mapping of sex-linked markers
The genetic maps presented here will serve as a basis for the construction of a high-resolution genetic map and mapping of economically important genes for genetic improvement and selective breeding of C. farreri. Expand
A Toll receptor from Chinese shrimp Fenneropenaeus chinensis is responsive to Vibrio anguillarum infection.
Results suggest that FcToll might be involved in innate host defense, especially against the pathogen V. anguillarum, and belongs to insect-type invertebrate Toll family. Expand
Molecular cloning, characterization and expression analysis of a putative C-type lectin (Fclectin) gene in Chinese shrimp Fenneropenaeus chinensis.
It could be deduced that Fclectin is a member of C-type lectin superfamily, a potential molecule involved in immune recognition and phagocytosis through opsonization in crustacean immune system. Expand
Effect of stocking density on growth, settlement and survival of clam larvae, Meretrix meretrix
To determine the optimal larval density for hatchery culture of the clam Meretrix meretrix, experiments with stocking densities of 5, 10, 20, 40 and 60 larvae ml(-1) were designed, which included theExpand
Recent advances in researches on the innate immunity of shrimp in China.
The molecules involved in the maintenance of the immune homeostasis of shrimp and the progress on molecular structure and pathogenic mechanism of WSSV were summarized. Expand
High-density linkage mapping aided by transcriptomics documents ZW sex determination system in the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis
Using quantitative trait locus mapping of the gender phenotype, a ZW-ZZ sex determination system in Eriocheir sinensis is revealed and a high-density linkage map covering ~98.5% of the genome is presented, with 73 linkage groups corresponding to the haploid chromosome number. Expand
White spot syndrome virus (WSSV) infects specific hemocytes of the shrimp Penaeus merguiensis.
The results suggest that the virus infects 2 types of shrimp hemocytes--GCs and SGCs, and the SGC type contains higher virus loads and exhibits faster infection rates, and is apparently more susceptible to WSSV infection. Expand
Molecular Cloning and Expression Profile of Putative Antilipopolysaccharide factor in Chinese Shrimp(Fenneropenaeus chinensis)
A new antimicrobial protein gene of the anti-lipopolysaccharide factor family (tentatively named as ALFFc) has been cloned from hemocytes of the Chinese shrimp Fenneropenaeus chinensis by rapidExpand
