  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...
  2. Shrestha S, Kim Y. Biochemical characteristics of immune-associated phospholipase A(2) and its inhibition by an entomopathogenic bacterium, Xenorhabdus nematophila. J Microbiol. 2009;47:774-82 pubmed publisher
    ..Effect of a PLA(2)-inhibitory fraction on the immunosuppression of T. castaneum was equally comparable with that resulted from inhibition of the TcPLA(2) gene expression by RNA interference. ..
  3. Hepat R, Kim Y. Transient expression of a viral histone H4 inhibits expression of cellular and humoral immune-associated genes in Tribolium castaneum. Biochem Biophys Res Commun. 2011;415:279-83 pubmed publisher
    ..These results suggest that CpBV-H4 suppresses both humoral and cellular immune responses of T. castaneum by altering a normal epigenetic control of immune-associated gene expression...
  4. Hepat R, Song J, Lee D, Kim Y. A viral histone h4 joins to eukaryotic nucleosomes and alters host gene expression. J Virol. 2013;87:11223-30 pubmed publisher
    ..These findings suggest that the viral histone H4 alters host gene expression by a direct molecular interaction with insect nucleosomes. ..
