This has led to the identification of several important roles for Toll receptors in mammals. This unit discusses mammalian Toll receptors (TLR1-10) that have an essential role in the innate immune recognition of microorganisms. Also discussed are TLR-mediated signaling pathways and antibodies that are available to detect specific TLRs.

  • Toll-like receptors;
  • NOD;
  • RNA helicase;
  • TIR domain
