Expression, cDNA cloning, and characterization of the antibacterial peptide cecropin D from Agrius convolvuli

TLDR
The result of the inhibition zone suggests that C-terminal lysine residue could increase the activity due to activated phosphorylation in Cecropin, which is basic antibacterial peptides that have potent activities against microorganisms.

Cloning and functional expression of a cecropin-A gene from the Japanese oak silkworm, Antheraea yamamai

TLDR
It is proved that this peptide with a potent antibacterial activity may play a role in the immune response of Japanese oak silkworm and bioactive recombinant Ay-CecA in Escherichia coli that are highlysensitive to the mature peptide.

Molecular cloning of a novel cecropin-like peptide gene from the swallowtail butterfly, Papilio xuthus

TLDR
A new cecropin-like antimicrobial peptide gene was isolated from the immunechallenged larvae of the swallowtail butterfly, Papilio xuthus, by employing annealing control primer (ACP)-based GeneFishing PCR, and RT-PCR revealed that the Px-CLP transcript was detected at significant level after injection with bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS).

Characterization and expression of a cecropin-like gene from Helicoverpa armigera.

Molecular Characterization, cDNA Cloning and Phylogenetic Analysis of Cecropin Gene Isolated from Bacterial-challenged Cotton Leafworm, Spodoptera littoralis

TLDR
The deduced amino acid sequence of SpliCec indicated that the full length cDNA of cecropin gene consists of a 22-residue signal peptide, a dipeptide prosequence and a 38- Residue mature peptide.

cDNA CLONING AND TRANSCRIPTIONAL REGULATION OF THE CECROPIN AND ATTACIN FROM THE ORIENTAL FRUIT FLY, Bactrocera dorsalis (DIPTERA: TEPHRITIDAE).

TLDR
Real-time quantitative RT-PCR demonstrated that the developmental transcription profiles of BdCec and BdAttC were similar in each larvae, pupae, and adults, suggesting that their antimicrobial activity is active in the newly hatched larvae and just before pupation.

Isolation and purification of a cecropin-like antimicrobial peptide from the japanese oak silkworm, Antheraea yamamai

TLDR
The isolated cecropin-like antimicrobial peptide was isolated and purified from the larval haemolymph of immune-challenged japanese oak silkworm, Antheraea yamamai and showed a broad spectrum of activity against fungi, Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria.

Purification and molecular cloning of cDNA for an inducible antibacterial protein of larvae of a coleopteran insect, Holotrichia diomphalia.

TLDR
An antibacterial protein was found to inhibit the growth of Gram-negative bacteria and to consist of 72-amino acid residues with no cysteine residues.

The structure of the gene for cecropin B, an antibacterial immune protein from Hyalophora cecropia.

TLDR
A conserved, insect specific cap site, ATCATTC, was identified by S1 mapping and primer extension experiments and indications were found for the presence of multigene families and multicopy genes.

A family of bacteria-regulated, cecropin D-like peptides from Manduca sexta.

TLDR
Results obtained by Northern hybridization and RNase protection analysis showed that the increased synthesis of bactericidins is due to induction of their mRNA levels and that the synthesis of these peptides is not strictly tissue-specific, in contrast to previous beliefs.

Identification and Characterization of the Cecropin Antibacterial Protein Gene Locus in Drosophila virilis

TLDR
Analysis of 19 insect cecropin genes identifies a common ancestral Cecropin before the divergence of Diptera and Lepidoptera and analysis of genome Southern hybridizations suggest that Andropin-related sequences are present in at least the melanogaster species subgroup.
