A different repertoire of Galleria mellonella antimicrobial peptides in larvae challenged with bacteria and fungi.

Abstract

To date, functioning of insect humoral immune response is especially well described in Diptera. The mechanisms of pathogen recognition, activation of signaling pathways and regulation of antimicrobial defense peptide expression are relatively well known. The present paper demonstrates evidence that the immune system of the Lepidoptera moth, Galleria… (More)
