- ... The silkworm, Bombyxmori L., has developed various defense mechanisms that reducethe negative effects of adverse environmental conditions. However, the mechanisms by which many physiological and ecological aspects work, including the functioning of the prophenoloxidase (pro-PO) system in Bombyxmori (BmPPO), are not completely understood. In our previous study, we found that eicosanoids mediated th ...
