The cGAS-STING pathway plays essential roles in detecting cytosolic dsDNA and initiating antiviral and antibacterial responses in vertebrates. However, knowledge about its function in antiviral response of invertebrates is very limited. In the present study, a gene encoding a Mab21-containing protein, a cGAS homologue, was identified from a decapod crustacean Litopenaeus vannamei and designated as LvMab21cp. Read More
