Arginine kinase (ATP:l-arginine omega-N-phosphotransferase, EC2.7.3.3.; AK) is an enzyme crucial for the energy metabolism of insects and other invertebrates, that has known allergenic potential in humans and that has been proposed as a pesticidal drug target. Here we report the identification, cDNA cloning, genomic gene structure and functional expression of AK genes from Ctenocephalides (C.) felis (cat flea). In contrast to other insect species investigated so far, C. felis possesses two AK… CONTINUE READING
