    ..Taken together, these suggest that the complement operating via the AP is already competent by responding to challenge with LPS in the hatched larvae of Danio rerio. ..

    ..While each paralogue contributes to the response to bacterial insult, mstnb affects the immune system through activation of the NF-?B pathway, and mstna is likely to act upstream of NF-?B at some as yet unidentified target. ..
