The evolution of the host-pathogen relationship comprises a series of invasive-defensive tactics elicited by both participants. The stereotype is that the antimicrobial immune response requires multistep processes. Little is known about the primordial immunosurveillance system, which probably has components that directly link sensors and effectors. Here we found that the respiratory proteins of both the horseshoe crab and human were directly activated by microbial proteases and were enhanced by… Expand
The proPO-system: pros and cons for its role in invertebrate immunity.
TLDR
Using RNA interference against phenoloxidase or in specific host-pathogen interactions where the pathogen prevents melanin production by the host, convincing data have confirmed the importance of this cascade in invertebrate innate immunity. Expand
A perspective on the role of extracellular hemoglobin on the innate immune system.
TLDR
The roles of cell-free Hb in the innate immune system is reviewed, focusing on the plausible interactions among Hb, pathogens, host cell components, and innate immune cells, all of which remain to be explored with experiential detail. Expand
Immunological properties of oxygen-transport proteins: hemoglobin, hemocyanin and hemerythrin
TLDR
The true extent of oxygen-transport protein dynamics in innate immunity is evaluated, to impress upon the reader the multi-functionality of these ancient proteins on the basis of their structures. Expand

TLDR
Horseshoe crab hemocyte selectively responds to bacterial lipopolysaccharides, which depends critically on the proteolytic activity of the LPS-responsive serine protease zymogen factor C, and coordinately effects pathogen recognition and killing, prophenoloxidase activation, complement activation and TGase-dependent wound healing. Expand
The Iron age of host–microbe interactions
TLDR
The general principles via which host adaptive responses regulating iron (Fe) metabolism impact on resistance and disease tolerance to infection are explored. Expand
Proteolytic cascades and their involvement in invertebrate immunity.
TLDR
Notably, recent work has identified several connections and shared principles among the different pathways, suggesting that cross-talk between them may be common, and these cascades, although widespread, are not present in all phyla. Expand
The macromolecular assembly of pathogen-recognition receptors is impelled by serine proteases, via their complement control protein modules.
TLDR
It is shown that two serine proteases in the horseshoe crab Carcinoscorpius rotundicauda interact with the core "pathogen-recognition complex" via their complement control protein modules. Expand
Amphioxus CaVPT and creatine kinase are crucial immune-related molecules in response to bacterial infection and immunization.
TLDR
Results indicate that CaVPT, CK, CaVP and SCP are the most important biomarkers to uncover amphioxus innate immunity to bacteria, and the differential proteomics approach coupled with the pattern recognition methods are an efficient way to identify key biomarkers. Expand
Role of hemoglobin from blood clam Scapharca kagoshimensis beyond oxygen transport.
TLDR
Results indicate thatskHbI and skHbII, not only function as iron-containing oxygen carriers, but also exert anti-bacterial activities and catecholase-type oxidizing activities, and may provide insight into how the fundamental and universal mode of the innate immune system has persisted in respiratory proteins throughout the course of evolution. Expand
The Nrf2 pathway is required for intracellular replication of Toxoplasma gondii in activated macrophages
TLDR
It is indicated that the Nrf2 signalling pathway is necessary for maintaining redox homeostasis in activated RAW264.7 cells and the NRF2/Keap1 pathway may be targeted to prevent and treat toxoplasmosis. Expand

The biochemical and functional properties of pathogen-derived vesicles reveal their potential to critically impact disease and demonstrate their potent virulence mechanism exhibited by diverse Gram-negative pathogens. Expand

Interference with quorum sensing represents a promising strategy for the therapeutic or prophylactic control of infection as well as intrinsic pharmacological and immunomodulatory activities such that they may function as virulence determinants per se. Expand
A serine protease zymogen functions as a pattern-recognition receptor for lipopolysaccharides.
TLDR
It is concluded that the serine protease zymogen on the hemocyte surface functions as a pattern-recognition protein for LPS, and the proteolytic activity of factor C is both necessary and sufficient to trigger exocytosis through a heterotrimeric GTP-binding protein-mediating signaling pathway.

Diversity in lectins enables immune recognition and differentiation of wide spectrum of pathogens.
TLDR
It is postulate that different populations of plasma lectins act in collaboration in frontline innate immune defense against disparate pathogens and appears to evolutionarily compensate for the lack of acquired immunity. Expand
