a defensin-like gene expressed in the black-legged tick, ixodes scapularis.the black-legged tick ixodes scapularis linnaeus (acari: ixodidae) is an important vector of microbial pathogens. knowledge of the tick's innate immune response, particularly defensin and other antimicrobial peptides, is important for understanding how microbes survive in this tick. a defensin gene (slna) from i. scapularis was obtained by reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (rt-pcr) using mrna extracted from tissues of female ticks. rt-pcr indicated the gene was expressed in the mid ...200516336297
