Genome-wide gene expression in response to parasitoid attack in Drosophila.

Abstract:

BACKGROUND: Parasitoids are insect parasites whose larvae develop in the bodies of other insects. The main immune defense against parasitoids is encapsulation of the foreign body by blood cells, which subsequently often melanize. The capsule sequesters and kills the parasite. The molecular processes involved are still poorly understood, especially compared with insect humoral immunity. RESULTS: We explored the transcriptional response to parasitoid attack in Drosophila larvae at nine time po...
