Abstract:
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are a group of trans-membrane proteins playing important roles as pattern-recognition receptors (PRRs) of innate immunity that are mainly expressed on professional antigen presenting cells (APCs). Stimulation of APC with TLR ligands, a variety of Jnolecular components derived from microorganisms, triggers innate immunity and establishes adaptive immune responses. I studied the impact of TLR specific for bacterial components on antigen processing and presentation of protective antigen (PA) of B. anthracis by bone marrow macrophages from mice.
