|Abstract||Immune function gene expression in Mya arenaria haemocytes was evaluated following in vivo infection with Vibrio splendidus LGP32-GFP and 7SHRW. Elongation factor 1α (EF-1α) with 2 (EF-2), after challenge with LGP32-GFP, and EF-1α with the ribosomal protein S-18, after challenge with 7SHRW, were found to be the most stable housekeeping genes. Using these internal controls and comparing the regulation induced by both strains, up-regulation of γ-actin, down-regulation of TLR-2 and up-regulation of IRAK-4 was significantly higher after challenge with LGP32-GFP (p<0.001, p=0.001 and p<0.05, respectively). These results suggest specific responses at a molecular level modulated by the bacterial strains. LGP32-GFP induced marked responses which coincide with a similar trend previously found on phenotypic responses under our experimental model.|
