Peroxiredoxin 5 (Prx5) belongs to a novel family of evolutionarily conserved antioxidant proteins that protect cells against various oxidative stresses. Generally, no more than one Prx5 transcript had been reported in non-primate species. In this study, two Prx5 genes (coined as SpPrx5-1 and SpPrx5-2) were firstly isolated from the mud crab, Scylla(More)
IL-16 is a pro-inflammatory cytokine originally designated as a lymphocyte chemoattractant factor. In mammal and avian, it has been characterized as an essential regulator of various cellular processes including cell recruitment and activation against pathogen invasion. So far, neither of the full-length of IL-16 homologue nor the response mechanism against(More)
Hemocytes play essential roles in the innate immune system of crustaceans. Characterization of hemocytes from estuary mud crab Scylla paramamosain was performed by flow cytometry and morphological studies such as cytochemical staining and electron microscopy. The hemocyte subsets were further separated using a modified Percoll density gradient(More)
