Cryptocaryon irritans is one of the most important ectoparasites of marine fish, and can have a devastating effect on aquacultured fish populations. The role of TLR signaling pathways in anti-parasitic immune responses is poorly understood in fish. In this paper, we first cloned Epinephelus coioides MyD88 full-length cDNA (EcMyD88) and its respective gene. The open reading frame (ORF) of cDNA is 873bp encoding 291 amino acid residues. Similar to other species, the EcMyD88 gene contains of five… CONTINUE READING
