Data from: The double-edged sword of immune defence and damage control: do food availability and immune challenge alter the balance?

Zachary R. Stahlschmidt, Madison Acker, Ilya Kovalko & Shelley A. Adamo
1.Animal immune systems must adaptively balance aggressive immune resistance (ability to destroy pathogens) with infection tolerance (ability to withstand the negative effects of infection; e.g., immunopathology or damage due to pathogen metabolism). 2.Insects offer unique insight into this balancing act because phenoloxidase (PO)-mediated melanisation is a key feature of immune resistance, but PO activation obligates the production of non-specific reactive species that can cause self-damage. The antioxidant glutathione (GSH) can provide protection against such reactive...
