Abstract:


The native gene information of anti-LPS factor from Tachypleus tridentatus was first reported in this study. The total RNA was extracted from amebocytes of Tachypleus tridentatus and the first-strand cDNA was synthesized by RT-PCR. Then the amplified cDNA of TALF was cloned and expressed in Pichia pastoris. The biological activity of the recombinant proteins obtained have been confirmed by LPS neutralization assay and bacteriostatic assay in vitro.
