Toll/interleukin-1 receptor (TIR) domain-containing adaptors, serve as pivotal signal transduction molecules in Toll-like receptor (TLR) signalling pathway to mediate downstream signalling cascades. In this study, four TIR-domain containing adaptors, MyD88, TRIF, MAL and SARM, were identified in mandarin fish Siniperca chuatsi, and they all contain TIR domains, of which MyD88 and SARM had high sequence homology with their vertebrate homologues. The expression analysis at mRNA level indicated that these genes were ubiquitously distributed in different tissues, being high in immune- and mucosa-related tissues such as head-kidney and intestine.
