14 Drosophila melanogaster's blood cells (hemocytes) play essential roles in wound healing and 15 are involved in clearing microbial infections. Here, we report the transcriptional changes of 16 larval plasmatocytes after clean injury or infection with the Gram-negative bacterium 17 Escherichia coli or the Gram-positive bacterium Staphylococcus aureus compared to 18 hemocytes recovered from unchallenged larvae via RNA-Sequencing. This study reveals 676 19 differentially expressed genes (DEGs) in hemocytes fro…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
