We proposed the following mechanism for LPS preconditioning-induced retinal prevention against ischemia: LPS preconditioning-induced retinal prevention against ischemic damages is mediated by toll-like receptor (TLR4) signaling through microglia. This TLR4 priming by LPS preconditioning dominantly activates TRIF-IRF3 (TIR-domain-containing adapter-inducing interferon-β/interferon regulatory factor 3) pathway and suppresses MyD88 - NF-κB pathway. Thus, detailed study of these findings may provide novel idea for discovery of new drugs against ischemic disorders.
