TitlePeptidoglycan recognition protein genes expressed in the green rice leafhopper Nephotettix cincticeps
Study TypeOther
Abstract Peptidoglycan recognition proteins (PGRPs) work for immune response in vertebrates and higher invertebrates. Animals have variable number of PGRP genes: four in human and mouse, 13 in Drosophila, and 0 in an aphid. Nephotettix cincticeps has the bacteriomes in the abdomen, the organ for endosymbiont ..
