Identification and expression of an ecdysteroid-responsive amylase from red crayfish Procambarus clarkii


Amylases catalyze the hydrolysis of starch material and play important roles in the regulation of many physiological processes. Here, we report an amylase gene denoted Pc-Amy in the crayfish Procambarus clarkii (Decapoda: Cambaridae). The Pc-Amy gene encodes a polypeptide of 514 amino acids, and the deduced amylase protein is highly homologous to those from… (More)
