Abstract:The Kazal type serine protease inhibitor gene of Cyclina sinensis were acquired by constructing SMART-cDNA library and large scale EST sequencing method. The expression of the serine protease inhibitor gene in different tissues was determined by RT-PCR, additionally, the expression of which were also determined in hemocytes after injection of Vibrio anguillarum. The results showed that the full length of SPI is 587 bp, the CDS covers a region from 67 bp to 520 bp encoding a 151-amino acid peptide including a 19-amino acid signal peptide. Reverse transcription PCR analysis showed that the express of serine protease inhibitor gene in hemocytes, liver, gills, adducter and mantle have obvious difference, and the highest expression level was observed in hemocytes, followed by in adducter. The SPI expression in hemocytes was significantly increased (P<0.01) at 3 hours and 48 hours after the challenge of Vibrio anguillarum. Thus, SPI may play an important role in the immune response of Cyclina sinensis.
