In this study, we analyzed the hemolymph proteome of Drosophila third instar larvae, which were induced with a suspension of Gram-positive bacteria or yeast. Profiling of the hemolymph proteins of infected versus non-infected larvae was performed by two-dimensional difference gel electrophoresis. Infection with Micrococcus luteus or Saccharomyces cerevisiae induced, respectively, 20 and 19 differential protein spots. The majority of the spots are specifically regulated by one pathogen, whereas… CONTINUE READING
