  1. Putative short, secreted peptides present in the cardia compartment of the female mosquito midgut as detected by two-dimensional chromatography and SCX- LC/MS/MS LTQ. Only those peptides that have a length equal or shorter than the mosquito anti-microbial peptides defensin (≤133 amino acids) are presented here. The signal peptide (SP) cleavage site is indicated.
