Cathepsin B plays crucial roles in host immune defense against pathogen infection. In present study, a cathepsin B gene from the freshwater mussel, Cristaria plicata (CpCathB) was cloned and characterized. The full-length cDNA of CpCathB was 1825 bp, and contained a 5' untranslated region (UTR) of 36 nucleotides, an open reading frame (ORF) of 1044 bp and a… CONTINUE READING
