Peroxinectin (PX) with cell adhesion and peroxidase activities is important in invertebrate immune responses. We identified a novel PX homolog from Scylla paramamosain (designated as Sp-PX) through transcriptome sequencing. The full-length of cDNA sequence was 3,165 bp. And there was a peroxidase domain in the deduced protein sequence. A cell-adhesive(More)
Tube and Pelle are essential components in Drosophila Toll signaling pathway. In this study, we characterized a pair of crustacean homologs of Tube and Pelle in Scylla paramamosain, namely, SpTube and SpPelle, and analyzed their immune functions. The full-length cDNA of SpTube had 2052 bp with a 1578 bp open reading frame (ORF) encoding a protein with 525(More)
