Scygonadin (Scy) is an important antimicrobial peptide which was first isolated from the seminal plasma of Scylla serrata (now renamed as Scylla paramamosain). Elucidation of the Scy expression pattern in tissues will help in understanding its potential function associated with the reproductive immunity. In our study, Scy mRNA transcripts and its protein were found widely distributed in mature male and female crabs. Scy mRNA transcripts were significantly demonstrated in the ejaculatory duct… CONTINUE READING
