Identification of immune inducible genes from the velvet worm Epiperipatus biolleyi (Onychophora)



Identification of immune inducible genes from the velvet worm Epiperipatus biolleyi (Onychophora)



Developmental and Comparative Immunology 32(12): 1416-1421



Onychophora are the next relatives of Arthropoda and, hence, represent an important taxon to unravel relationships among Insecta, Crustacea, Arachnida, and Myriapoda. Here, we screened for immune inducible genes from the onychophoran Epiperipatus biolleyi (Peripatidae) by injecting crude bacterial LPS and applying the suppression subtractive hybridization technique.
