AbstractLysozymes are key proteins of the host innate immune system against pathogen infection. In this study, a c-type lysozyme gene (Ec-lysC) was cloned and characterized from orange-spotted grouper, Epinephelus coioides. The full-length Ec-lysC cDNA is composed of 533 bp and encodes a polypeptide of 144-residue protein with 94% identity to lysC of Kelp grouper, Epinephelus bruneus. The genomic DNA of Ec-lysC consists of 4 exons and 3 introns, with a total length of 1897 bp. Amino acid sequence alignment showed that Ec-lysC possessed conserved catalytic residues (Glu50 and Asp67) and "GSTDYGIFQINS" motif. RT-PCR results showed that Ec-lysC transcript was most abundant in head kidney and less in muscle. The expression of Ec-lysC was differentially up-regulated in head kidney after stimulation with lipopolysaccharide (LPS), Vibrio alginolyticus and Singapore grouper iridovirus (SGIV). Subcellular localization analysis revealed that Ec-lysC was distributed predominantly in the cytoplasm. The recombinant Ec-lysC (rEc-lysC) had lytic activities against Gram-positive bacteria Micrococcus lysodeikticus, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus iniae and Gram-negative bacteria V. alginolyticus. The lysozyme acted on M. lysodeikticus cell walls as shown by scanning electron microscopy (SEM). Furthermore, overexpression of Ec-lysC in grouper cells delayed the occurrence of CPE induced by SGIV and inhibited the viral gene transcription significantly. Taken together, Ec-lysC might play an important role in grouper innate immune responses to invasion of bacterial and viral pathogens. C-type lysozyme gene from E. coioides (Ec-lysC) was identified and characterized. (C) 2012 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
