    ..Activation of coagulation was comparable in TM(LeD/LeD) and WT mice. From these data, we conclude that the lectin-like domain of thrombomodulin is critically involved in host defence against E. coli induced acute pyelonephritis. ..
  5. Jacobs C, van der Zee M. Immune competence in insect eggs depends on the extraembryonic serosa. Dev Comp Immunol. 2013;41:263-9 pubmed publisher
    ..Drosophila eggs and serosa-less Tribolium eggs, however, show little to no upregulation of any of the tested immune genes. We conclude that the extraembryonic serosa is crucial for the early immune competence of the Tribolium egg...
