  1. Shrestha S, Kim Y. Activation of immune-associated phospholipase A2 is functionally linked to Toll/Imd signal pathways in the red flour beetle, Tribolium castaneum. Dev Comp Immunol. 2010;34:530-7 pubmed publisher
    ..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...

    ..These results suggest that Seglv acts as an antimicrobial peptide especially against Gram-positive bacteria including B. thuringiensis. ..
