The two bacteria-induced crustin genes, Plcrustin1 and Plcrustin2, previously found in the hemocyte cDNA library of Pacifastacus leniusculus, contain the open reading frames of 357 bp encoding a putative protein of 118 amino acid residues and 330 bp encoding a putative protein of 109 amino acid residues, respectively. The carboxyl-terminal part of the two crustins possesses, respectively, 7 and 8 conserved cysteine residues representation of a WAP domain that is found in carcinins and crustins… CONTINUE READING
