The similar CAS3 expression and high ECSIT expression in all infected oysters, however, suggest that control of apoptosis by way of NF-[kappa]B occurs to prevent cell death.

Other key elements of the innate immune system have also been identified in Nematostella, including several members of the Toll and interleukin signaling cascades such as IRAK, TRAF, ECSIT, IKK, MKK, JNK, IKB, p38, and the transcription factors NF-kB and AP-1 (Table 4; Miller et al.
