ni larvae over-transcribed cytochrome P450 (CYP4L4) ([F.sub.3,8] = 13.366; P = 0.002), PGRP ([F.sub.3,8] = 10.14; P = 0.004), lysozyme ([F.sub.3,8] = 12.224; P = 0.002), attacin ([F.sub.3,8] = 10.701; P = 0.004), cecropin ([F.sub.3,8] = 15.946; P = 0.001), defensin ([F.sub.3,8] = 12.199; P = 0.002), gallerimycin ([F.sub.3,8] = 11.875; P = 0.003), and lebocin ([F.sub.3,8] = 12.87; P = 0.002) compared with unexposed (control) larvae, whereas ribosomal protein S5 (internal control) and caspase transcripts showed no differences (Fig.
We were unable to detect the AMP gloverin or the general immune response marker phenoloxidase, but most of the AMPs tested (PGRP, attacin, cecropin, defensin, gallerimycin, and lebocin) were over-transcribed, as were the humoral immune response lytic enzyme lysozyme and the chemical insecticide resistance marker cytochrome P450 (CYP4L4) (Fig.
This study revealed a number of innate immunity genes and proteins, including a fifth PGRP (EsPGRP5) that was among the most abundant hemocyte transcripts.
Taming the symbiont for coexistence: a host PGRP neutralizes a bacterial symbiont toxin.
The proteins, called Peptidoglycan Recognition Proteins (PGRPs
), are able to detect and target bacteria because bacteria are unique in having peptidoglycan polymers in their cellular walls.
Specifically, on the cell surface, PGRP-LE exerts such effects as a co-receptor of PGRP-LC, one of the PGRP
PGLYRP1 is approximately 200 amino acids, has a signal peptide and one PGRP
domain (Nylund et al., 2017), and a molecular mass of about 18-20 kDa.

Varios tipos de PRR han sido identificados en crustaceos, incluyendo proteinas de union Gram negativas, proteinas de union a lipopolisacaridos (LPS), proteinas de reconocimiento de peptidoglicanos (PGRP
), proteinas de union a B1-3-glucano (Romo-Figueroa et al., 2004; Lai et al., 2011), lectinas de tipo c (Wang & Wang, 2013) y proteinas relacionadas con el fibrinogeno (Chai et al., 2012).

strains were applied to cucumber seeds, some systemic resistance to C.
