Reprint of "review of Dscam-mediated immunity in shrimp and other arthropods".
Although true adaptive immunity is only found in vertebrates, there is increasing evidence that shrimp and other arthropods exhibit immune specificity and immune memory. The invertebrate immuneExpand

EcVig, a novel grouper immune-gene associated with antiviral activity against NNV infection.
VHSV-induced genes (VIGs) were first identified in rainbow trout (Oncorhynchus mykiss) and subsequently isolated in a variety of fish. Recent studies have shown that most VIGs have immunologicalExpand

Using CRISPR/Cas9-mediated gene editing to further explore growth and trade-off effects in myostatin-mutated F4 medaka (Oryzias latipes)
Myostatin (MSTN) suppresses skeletal muscle development and growth in mammals, but its role in fish is less well understood. Here we used CRISPR/Cas9 to mutate the MSTN gene in medaka (OryziasExpand

Spawning stress triggers WSSV replication in brooders via the activation of shrimp STAT.
In the early days of shrimp aquaculture, wild-captured brooders usually spawned repeatedly once every 2-4days. However, since the first outbreaks of white spot disease (WSD) nearly 20years ago,Expand

Identification and characterization of DSCAM isoforms isolated from orange-spotted grouper Epinephelus coioides.
The Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule (DSCAM), an immunoglobulin (Ig) superfamily member, was first identified from human and subsequently isolated from both vertebrates and invertebrates. RecentExpand

Functions and therapeutic targets of Siglec-mediated infections, inflammations and cancers.
Siglecs, sialic acid (SA)-binding immunoglobulin (Ig)-like lectins, belong to a family of Ig-like lectins. All Siglecs have at least two domains including an extracellular domain with variable (V)Expand

A member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, orange-spotted grouper novel immune gene EcVig, is induced by immune stimulants and type I interferon.
A novel grouper immune gene, EcVig was identified in orange-spotted grouper (Epinephelus coioides). We recently determined that EcVig expression can be induced by infection with nervous necrosisExpand
