    ..Taken together, these results suggest that Pc-SOCS-2 is a negative regulator of ecdysteroid signaling transduction. ..
  6. Dai L, Sun Y, Sun Y, Zhu B, Liu C. Characterization and function of a cathepsin B in red crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) following lipopolysaccharide challenge. Fish Shellfish Immunol. 2016;56:162-168 pubmed publisher
    ..Our results suggested that the PcCTSB might play an important role in defending against the pathogenes infection. ..
  7. Li J, Wei G, Wang L, Qian C, Li K, Zhang C, et al. KPNA3-knockdown eliminates the second heat shock protein peak associated with the heat shock response of male silkworm pupae (Bombyx mori) by reducing heat shock factor transport into the nucleus. Gene. 2016;575:452-457 pubmed publisher
    ..We concluded that KPNA3 knockdown eliminates the second heat shock protein peak in the heat shock response of male silkworm pupae by reducing HSF transport into the nucleus. ..
