Shrestha S, Kim Y. Eicosanoids mediate prophenoloxidase release from oenocytoids in the beet armyworm Spodoptera exigua. Insect Biochem Mol Biol. 2008;38:99-112 pubmed
..These results indicate that eicosanoids mediate SePPO activation only at the post-transcriptional level by inducing release of PPO from oenocytoids through cell rupture. ..
Kim G, Nalini M, Kim Y, Lee D. Octopamine and 5-hydroxytryptamine mediate hemocytic phagocytosis and nodule formation via eicosanoids in the beet armyworm, Spodoptera exigua. Arch Insect Biochem Physiol. 2009;70:162-76 pubmed publisher
..Taken together, this study suggests that octopamine and 5-HT can mediate hemocytic phagocytosis and nodule formation through a downstream signal pathway relayed by eicosanoids in S. exigua...
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...
Srikanth K, Park J, Stanley D, Kim Y. Plasmatocyte-spreading peptide influences hemocyte behavior via eicosanoids. Arch Insect Biochem Physiol. 2011;78:145-60 pubmed publisher
..Taken together, these points strongly support our model showing that PSP acts via a plasmatocyte-surface receptor, which stimulates biosynthesis of the PGs responsible for mediating plasmatocytes spreading. ..
Park J, Kim Y. Eicosanoid biosynthesis is activated via Toll, but not Imd signal pathway in response to fungal infection. J Invertebr Pathol. 2012;110:382-8 pubmed publisher
..These results suggest that eicosanoid biosynthesis is activated via Toll, but not Imd signal pathway in response to fungal infection in S. exigua. ..
