..We also confirmed that the internal glycerol level changed in cells exposed to cell wall perturbation. ..

..These results show how changes in the external temperature modulate the immune response of G. mellonella suffering from infection with its natural pathogen B. bassiana. ..
Wojda I, Jakubowicz T. Humoral immune response upon mild heat-shock conditions in Galleria mellonella larvae. J Insect Physiol. 2007;53:1134-44 pubmed
..We also show the effect of 17-DMAG on the phosphorylation state of ERK MAP kinase. We postulate that Hsp90 may play a significant role in converging pathways involved in the insect immune response and heat-shock. ..

..In analogy to fever in homotherms, this process seems to be regulated by the prostaglandin/eicosanoid biosynthesis pathway. The positive effects of temperature change on insect immunity are presented in the paper. ..

..These include an upstream regulatory element, an extension of the -10 element containing three nucleotides TGn (TGn-extended -10 element), several IRs, and PraR repressor related to quorum sensing. ..
