Innate immunity plays a major role as a first defense against microbes. Effectors of the innate response include pattern recognition receptors (PRR), phagocytic cells, proteolytic cascades and peptides/proteins with antimicrobial properties. Each element of these events has been well studied in vertebrates and in some invertebrates such as annelids. From these different researches, it appears that mammalian innate immunity could be considered as a mosaic of invertebrate immune responses… Expand
Antimicrobial peptides in annelids
TLDR
An overview of the variety of AMPs identified in the three classes of annelids, i.e. polychaetes, oligochaetes and achaete is given, suggesting that immune defense of annalids seems to be principally developed as cellular immunity. Expand
Invertebrate Innate Immune Defenses
TLDR
This chapter reviews the currently available data from the simplest metazoan species, the Porifera and Cnidaria, in an attempt to trace the origin of essential elements of the innate immune system. Expand

TLDR
The adaptive immune system of mammals is also deeply rooted in the metazoan evolution, and its functional convergence was presumably enabled by the general similarity of the lectin-like recognition domain three-dimensional structure. Expand

TLDR
This work discusses immune responses of the polychete Arenicola marina, the lugworm, and presents the synopsis on antimicrobial peptides arenicins: their structure, function and therapeutic potential. Expand
Immuno-defense Strategy in Earthworms: A Review Article
TLDR
Income immunity presents in all organisms as their natural immunity since birth upto the whole life of organisms and is considered as most primitive and simplest form of immunity. Expand
Platyhelminthes: Molecular Dissection of the Planarian Innate Immune System
TLDR
This work focuses on the planarian model system as a tractable paradigm to identify evolutionarily conserved mechanisms of innate immunity that can be further exploited in clinical settings to induce rapid clearance of pathogenic bacteria and modulation of regenerative events. Expand
Protective Responses in Invertebrates
TLDR
A new player in various protective responses is “functional amyloidogenesis,” which is a basic event involved not only in melanin synthesis but also in detoxification processes against the overproduction of reactive oxygen species. Expand

Immune defense and biological responses induced by toxics in Annelida
TLDR
The phylum Annelida comprises primitive coelomates that possess specially developed cellular immunity against pathogens, but no specificity analogous to vertebrate antibodies has been revealed, except for weak specificity of some antigen-binding proteins. Expand
Digging for innate immunity since Darwin and Metchnikoff.
TLDR
The cellular and humoral components of the earthworm system function to distinguish between self and not self, dispose of internal (cancer?), damaged components and external antigens (microbes), and the evolutionary context is discussed at the end of this article. Expand
Vertebrate innate immunity resembles a mosaic of invertebrate immune responses.

TLDR
Insects have developed an acute response resembling that seen in humans, implicating similar effectors, receptors and regulation of gene expression, which suggests that the vertebrate innate immune response resembles a patchwork of those responses seen in several invertebrates. Expand
Antibacterial properties of hemerythrin of the sand worm Nereis diversicolor.
TLDR
These results reflect that MPII in conjunction with others partners like lysozyme act as defence molecule for the sand worm. Expand
Leeches: immune response, angiogenesis and biomedical applications.
TLDR
The responses of leeches to different kinds of stimuli (infections following non-self agent attacks, surgical lesions, grafts), which are responsible for positive and negative modulation of angiogenesis, are described. Expand
Transcriptomic analysis in the leech Theromyzon tessulatum: involvement of cystatin B in innate immunity.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that the innate immune response in the leech involves a cysteine proteinase inhibitor that is not found in ecdysozoan models, such as Drosophila melanogaster or Caenorhabditis elegans, and so underlines the great need for information about innate immunity mechanisms in different invertebrate groups.

TLDR
The coccidian parasites C. durchoni and N. diversicolor have established a biological equilibrium that permits mutual survival of both partners and constitutes a simple model for the study of the host-parasite relationship. Expand

TLDR
The earthworm’s importance in understanding the capacity of coelomic fluid to effect lysis by means of a protein which has been referred to as Eiseniapore is significant as indicated by the recent increase in molecular studies relevant to lysis. Expand
