Antimicrobial peptides or proteins (AMPs) are proved to be one of the most important humoral factors to resist pathogen infection. As an antimicrobial protein, crustin had been described in invertebrates as a component of the innate immune system. A crustin-like gene (CruFc) was cloned from haemocytes of Chinese shrimp Fenneropenaeus chinensis by 3' and 5'-RACE PCR. The full-length cDNA consists of 523 with 405 bp open reading frame encoding 134 amino acids and the deduced peptide contains a… CONTINUE READING
