Hemolin expression during Cecropia development and its effect on malaria parasites

  title={Hemolin expression during Cecropia development and its effect on malaria parasites},
  author={Yohannes Assefaw-Redda},
Hemolin is a lepidopteran member of the immunoglobulin superfamily, initially isolated from the giant silkmoth Hyalophora cecropia. Hemolin is also induced by stimulation with microbial cell wall components and was recently shown to be strongly upregulated by baculovirus and double stranded RNA. An interesting characteristic of the protein is that it is not only highly expressed during infection but also during development. The work presented in this thesis investigated the expression of… CONTINUE READING
