Lysin domain (LysM) is a widely spread domain in nature and could bind different peptidoglycans and chitin-like compounds in bacteria and eukaryotes. In plants, Lysin motif containing proteins are one of the major classes of pattern recognition proteins which can recognize GlcNAc-containing glycans and have important functions in plant immunity. However, their functions in animal immunity are still unclear. In this study, a cDNA encoding a LysM containing protein was identified from red swamp… CONTINUE READING
