Insect Immune Responses


We have pulled together several categories of links to provide a wide range of starting points for further investigation. If you know of other sites we should link, please let Sarah Deel ( know.

This site is part of a larger site called the Interactive fly which focuses on Drosophila melanogaster. This page provides background information about the defense response of the fruit fly.

This page contains a summary description of the humoral and cellular immune responses in insects. It also discusses briefly how parasitoids of insects evade these responses.

This is the web page of Dr. Mike Kanost (Kansas State University) who is studying M. sexta hemolymph proteins in general with a particular interest in the immune proteins.

This page gives a 3-D structural view of lysozyme.
