    Department of Biological Sciences, George Washington University, Washington, DC, USA
    BMC Mol Biol 8:16. 2007
    ..Individual sea urchins were challenged with pathogen associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) (lipopolysaccharide, beta-1,3-glucan, or double stranded RNA), and changes in the 185/333 message repertoire were followed over time...
