MDA5 is a cytoplasmic viral double-stranded RNA recognition receptor that plays a pivotal role in the aquatic animal innate immune system. To decipher the role of MDA5 of Squaliobarbus curriculus (ScMDA5) in the immune response, full-length cDNA of ScMDA5 was cloned using the RACE technology, mRNA and protein expression levels of ScMDA5 signalling pathway members in response to stimulation were detected and effects of overexpression of ScMDA5 on the immune response were investigated. ScMDA5 comprises 3597 bp and is composed of an open reading frame (2958 nucleotides long) that translates into a putative peptide of 985 amino acid residues. ScMDA5 possesses two N-terminal caspase-recruiting domains, DEAD-like helicases superfamily, helicase superfamily C-terminal and RIG-I_C-RD domains, and differences in these domains among species were mainly observed with respect to their length and location. ScMDA5 was closely clustered with those of Carassius auratus, Ctenopharyngodon idellus and Mylopharyngodon piceus. ScMDA5 transcripts were most abundant in the spleen and the lowest in the liver. Expression levels of ScMDA5 in healthy tissues were significantly correlated with those of ScIRF3, ScIRF7 and ScIFN. Besides, mRNA expression levels of ScIRF3 were significantly correlated with those of ScIRF7 (0.956, P
