We have previously reported the existence of a broad-specitrum of constitutive activity against a variety of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria in hte hemolymph of Reticulitermes flavipes. Here we report the alternations of constitutive activities and the production of inducible activities against two MDRs human pathogens. The alternations in protein profiles are characterized using proteomic approach.
