- ... The proteolytic activation of prophenoloxidase (proPO) is a humoral defense mechanism in insects and crustaceans. Phenoloxidase (PO) is produced as an inactive precursor namely, proPO and is activated via specific proteolytic cleavage by proPO‐activating proteinase. The current research reports two novel serine proteinase genes (PxSP1—768 bp and PxSP2—816 bp) from Plutella xylostella, encoding 255 ...
