Myeloid differentiation Marker 88 (MyD88) is a universal adaptor molecule for the Toll/IL1R and is involved in the inflammatory response induced by IL1, IL18 and LPS. MyD88 associates with and recruits IRAK to IL1 receptor complex in response to IL1. This pathway further leads to activation of NFkB. Targeted disruption of the MyD88 gene results in lose of cellular responses to IL1 and IL18, and MyD88 deficient mice lack responses to bacterial product LPS that employs Toll like receptors 2 and 4 as the signaling receptors.
The role of TLR4 in breast cancer Toll like receptors (TLRs) are highly conserved proteins that are first known for their role in pathogen recognition and immune response activation. In order to elicit the necessary immune response in reaction to a foreign pathogen, TLRs trigger cy... Read more.
MYD88: Fanning Inflammation and Immune Responses Myeloid differentiation primary response gene 88 (MYD88) encodes a cytosolic adapter protein that plays an essential role in innate and adaptive immune responses. MYD88 protein functions as an essential signal transducer in the interleukin-1 and in To... Read more.
TLR7 and Immune Response Regulation Toll-like receptor 7 (TLR7) is a protein encoded by the TLR7 gene in humans and is a member of TLR family. TLRs controls host immune response against pathogens (e.g. viruses, bacteria and fungi) through recognition of pathogen-associated molecular pat... Read more.
MYD88 Expression and Tumorigenesis MyD88, also called myeloid differentiation primary response gene 88, encodes a cytosolic adapter protein that plays an essential role in innate and adaptive immune responses. The innate immune system recognizes the presence of bacterial pathogens thro... Read more.
