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 (sdeel@carleton.edu) know.

 

http://flybase.bio.indiana.edu/allied-data/lk/interactive-fly/aignfam/immune.htm

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.

 

http://www.waite.adelaide.edu.au/AME/insect_immunity/insect_immunity.html

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.
