Gene expression and molecular characterization of a novel C-type lectin, encapsulation promoting lectin (EPL), in the rice armyworm, Mythimna separata.

Abstract

Insect cellular immune reactions differ depending on the target species. Phagocytosis is activated to scavenge microorganisms such as bacteria and fungi. On the other hand, larger invaders such as parasitoid wasps are eliminated by activation of encapsulation. In this study, we hypothesized that novel determinants regulate cellular immunities independent of… (More)
