C-type lectins (CTLs) have crucial functions in recognizing and eliminating pathogens in innate immunity. This study identified a novel low-density lipoprotein receptor class A (LDLa) domain-containing CTL, designated as EsCTLDcp, from the Chinese mitten crab Eriocheir sinensis. The EsCTLDcp cDNA is 1258 bp long, with a 975 bp open reading frame that… CONTINUE READING
