Cloning of mRNA sequences for two antibacterial peptides in a hemipteran insect, Riptortus clavatus.

Abstract

Escherichia coli injection rapidly induced bactericidal activity in the hemolymph of a hemipteran insect, Riptortus clavatus. This activity reached its maximum at 9 hr after injection and thereafter declined slowly. Two types of cDNA clones involved in this response were isolated by differential screening. The predominant type encoded for an open reading… (More)
