Cross-Activation of Hemichannels/Gap Junctions and Immunoglobulin-Like Domains in Innate–Adaptive Immune Responses
TLDR
The present review summarizes the current understanding of HC-released immune signaling factors that influence IGLDCPs in regulating innate–adaptive immunity and delineates the clinical immunology-related applications of HC–Ig-like domain cross-activation, which would greatly benefit medical professionals and immunological researchers alike.

TWO INNEXINS OF Spodoptera litura INFLUENCES HEMICHANNEL AND GAP JUNCTION FUNCTIONS IN CELLULAR IMMUNE RESPONSES.
TLDR
A steady-state level of Inxs (SpliInxs) was reported in hemocytes of Spodoptera litura, which formed nonfunctional hemichannels on the cell surface to maintain normal metabolism and provides fundamental knowledge for further study of how steady- state levels of SpliInx are dynamically adjusted to perform cellular immune responses under immune challenge.
Characterization of Nonjunctional Hemichannels in Caterpillar Cells
TLDR
These results demonstrate for the first time the activity of nonjunctional hemichannels in insect cells, as well as pharmacological tools to manipulate them, which will facilitate the further examination of the role of innexins and nonj Junctionine hemich channels in insect cell biology, including paracrine signaling, and comparative studies of mammalian pannexin homologues termed innexin.
A Role for Innexin2 and Innexin3 Proteins from Spodoptera litura in Apoptosis
TLDR
This study showed that Sf9 and Spli221 cells undergo low level apoptosis under normal culture conditions, but not Hi5 cells, which suggests that innexon-promoted apoptosis may be involving the PI3K/Akt signaling pathway.
N-TERMINALLY ELONGATED SpliInx2 AND SpliInx3 REDUCE BACULOVIRUS-TRIGGERED APOPTOSIS VIA HEMICHANNEL CLOSURE.
TLDR
An unconventional function of N-terminal-elongated innexins that could act as a plug to manipulate hemichannel closure is identified and provided a mechanism connecting the effect of hemichannels closure directly to apoptotic signaling transduction from intracellular to extracellular compartment.
Regulation of Hemichannels and Gap Junction Channels by Cytokines in Antigen-Presenting Cells
TLDR
The effects of different cytokines on the intercellular communication mediated by HCs and GJCs in APCs and their impact on purinergic signaling are focused on.
Microplitis demolitor polydnavirus induces apoptosis of a specific haemocyte morphotype in Pseudoplusia includens.
TLDR
It is suggested that MdPDV promotes its own survival by inducing apoptosis of host immune cells which would otherwise kill the developing M. demolitor egg.
Protein tyrosine phosphatase-H2 from a polydnavirus induces apoptosis of insect cells.
TLDR
The results indicate that specific genes expressed by MdBV induce apoptosis of certain insect cells and that this activity contributes to immunosuppression of hosts.
Polydnaviral Ankyrin Proteins Aid Parasitic Wasp Survival by Coordinate and Selective Inhibition of Hematopoietic and Immune NF-kappa B Signaling in Insect Hosts
TLDR
It is proposed that selective perturbation of NF-κB-IκB interactions in natural hosts of parasitic wasps negatively impacts the outcome of hematopoietic and immune signaling and this immune deficit contributes to parasite survival and species success in nature.
Inhibition of translation initiation factor eIF4A is required for apoptosis mediated by Microplitis bicoloratus bracovirus.
TLDR
Findings suggested that MbBV inhibited the expression of eIF4A, which was required for apoptosis mediated by MbV, which will contribute to biological pest control and enhance the understanding of molecular mechanisms underlying polydnavirus-parasitoid-host interaction.
MicroRNAs from Snellenius manilae bracovirus regulate innate and cellular immune responses of its host Spodoptera litura
TLDR
This study uncovers the functions of two SmBV-encoded miRNAs in regulating the host innate immune responses upon wasp parasitism and provides insights into how parasites maximize their fitness by regulating host immunity.
