Silkworm hemolymph is an important defense tissue to resist bacteria and virus infections. To study the response of silkworm hemolymph in the resistance of Bombyx mori L. nucleopolyhedrovirus (BmNPV), we constructed a near-isogenic silkworm line with BmNPV resistance using highly resistant and highly susceptible parental strains. In this paper, two-dimensional gel electrophoresis (2-DE) and Matrix-Assisted Laser Desorption/Ionization (MALDI)-mass spectrometry were employed to investigate the differences of protein patterns in the hemolymph of the highly resistant, highly susceptible and near-isogenic silkworm strains after BmNPV was administrated to the larvae. A comparison between the proteomes of these three silkworm strains led us to identify two differentially expressed proteins, beta-N-acetylglucosaminidase 2 and aminoacylase. The expression levels of these proteins were higher in the BmNPV resistant strains.
