    ..These results suggest that recognition of bacterial challenge initiates Toll and Imd pathways in T. castaneum, which subsequently induces the activation of immune-associated PLA(2)s as well as gene expression of various AMPs...

    ..This study demonstrated the effects of genetic background, the transcription profile to parasite infection, and identified the immunity-related genes that were significantly regulated by the infection of tapeworms in Tribolium beetles...
