Nucleotide sequence of 5'-upstream region and expression of a silkworm gene encoding a new member of the attacin family.


A genomic clone encoding a new member of attacin, an insect antibacterial protein, was isolated from a genomic library of the silkworm, Bombyx mori, and the nucleotide sequence of the 5'-upstream region was determined. The region contained Bm 1, a highly repetitive element of B. mori and a lipopolysaccharide (LPS) response element (RE)(NF-kappaB binding… (More)
