Three peptidoglycan recognition protein (PGRP) genes encoding potential amidase from eri-silkworm, Samia cynthia ricini.

Abstract

Three cDNA clones encoding peptidoglycan recognition proteins (PGRP-B, -C and -D) were isolated from larval fat body of immunized Samia cynthia ricini. The deduced amino acid sequences show high homology to each other and also to Drosophila PGRP-LB, but rather lower homology to all of the known lepidopteran PGRPs including Samia PGRP-A, a receptor-type PGRP… (More)
