A homolog of mammalian secretory leucocyte proteinase inhibitor or SLPI known as a double WAP domain (DWD) protein has been found in penaeid shrimp and believed to play an important role in innate immune system of the shrimp. The PmDWD identified from the Penaeus monodon EST database was investigated for its expression under pathogen infection. Infections(More)
An antimicrobial protein crustinPm1 from Penaeus monodon is a WAP domain-containing protein with an antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive bacteria but does not have antiproteinase activity. The lack of antiproteinase is speculated to be due to the P(1)' Met and/or the length of spacing between the conserved Cys2 and Cys3 while the antimicrobial(More)
