Antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) are regarded as important components of the host innate immune system and play crucial roles in host defence against microbial invasion. A small number of hepcidin AMPs have been isolated from teleosts. Here, we report the isolation of a hepcidin gene from the liver of turbot (Scophthalmus maximus) (GenBank accession numbers: and ). In the 1037 bp-long genomic sequence, three exons and two introns were identified. The full-length cDNA is 778bp long and contains an… CONTINUE READING
