  • Alpha-2 macroglobulin (A2M) is a non-specific protease inhibitor involved in host defense. By full length cloning and sequencing we identified three distinct cDNAs for A2M in Chinese shrimp Fenneropenaeus chinesis, designated FcA2M-1, FcA2M-2 and FcA2M-3, respectively. Expression profiles in normal tissues as well as tissues after challenge by white spot syndrome virus (WSSV) and Vibrio pathogen were conducted for FcA2M-1 and FcA2M-2. The FcA2M-1 and FcA2M-2 cDNAs encode proteins with 1501 or… CONTINUE READING
