An antioxidant system required for host protection against gut infection in Drosophila

Developmental Cell

Dec 29, 2004

Eun-Mi HaWon-Jae Lee

Abstract

A fundamental question that applies to all organisms is how barrier epithelia efficiently manage continuous contact with microorganisms. Here, we show that in Drosophila an extracellular immune-regulated catalase (IRC) mediates a key host defense system that is needed during host-microb...read more
