Galectin is one important member of pattern recognition proteins that plays a pivotal role in regulating innate immune response of invertebrates. In this study, we cloned the promoter sequence of a tandem-repeat galectin from the pearl oyster Pinctada fucata (P. fucata). The quantitative real-time PCR analysis revealed that galectin mRNA expression in… CONTINUE READING
