The cabbage butterfly (Pieris rapae) produces pierisin-1, an apoptosis-inducing protein against mammalian cells. In order to clarify the biological role of pierisin-1 in P. rapae, its expression during developmental stages was examined. Low levels of pierisin-1 mRNA and protein were detected in first-instar larvae. During growth until the fifth-instar larval stage, the amounts of the mRNA steadily increased to reach about 50-100 times the initial level. Then it rapidly decreased before pupation… CONTINUE READING
