Insects protect themselves from microbial invaders by two main immune activities, namely the cellular and humoral reactions. Phenoloxidases are oxidative enzymes that have an important role in both cell-mediated and humoral immunity. In this study, the purification and biochemical characterization of a phenoloxidase from the hemocytes of the Sunn pest Eurygaster integriceps Puton (Hemiptera: Scutelleridae) were carried out. After the final purification step, the enzyme was purified 7.31-fold… CONTINUE READING
