Anti bacterial peptides
( Honey bees have apidaecins and abaecin) [ these are peptides that the bee produces to for it's own immune system] The cellular response, mediated by the insect hemocytes, enables them to eliminate almost immediately the foreign material from the hemocoel by phagocytose, nodule formation and encapsulation. The cellular defense system is assisted by the humoral (cell-free) response which comprises the production of humoral antibacterial factors, which kill remaining bacteria and protect the insect against subsequent bacterial challenge (DUNN-1986; ref. 2).
