Cloning and expression analysis of three striped trumpeter (Latris lineata) pro-inflammatory cytokines, TNF-alpha, IL-1beta and IL-8, in response to infection by the ectoparasitic, Chondracanthus goldsmidi.

This study reports the cloning and sequencing of three striped trumpeter (Latris lineata Forster) pro-inflammatory cytokines, TNF-alpha, IL-1beta and IL-8, as well as their differential expression in response to an infection by the ectoparasite Chondracanthus goldsmidi. The striped trumpeter TNF-alpha transcript consisted of 1093 bp, including a 759 bp ORF… CONTINUE READING
