A human homologue of the Drosophila Toll protein signals activation of adaptive immunity
Induction of the adaptive immune response depends on the expression of co-stimulatory molecules and cytokines by antigen-presenting cells. The mechanisms that control the initial induction of theseExpand

Innate immune recognition.
The innate immune system is a universal and ancient form of host defense against infection. Innate immune recognition relies on a limited number of germline-encoded receptors. These receptors evolvedExpand

MyD88 is an adaptor protein in the hToll/IL-1 receptor family signaling pathways.
The Toll-mediated signaling cascade using the NF-kappaB pathway has been shown to be essential for immune responses in adult Drosophila, and we recently reported that a human homolog of theExpand

Innate Immunity: The Virtues of a Nonclonal System of Recognition
One of the predictions of the clonal selection theory was the ability of mature peripheral lymphocytes to discriminate between self and nonself. All self-reactive lymphocytes were thought to beExpand

IRAK-M Is a Negative Regulator of Toll-like Receptor Signaling
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) detect microorganisms and protect multicellular organisms from infection. TLRs transduce their signals through MyD88 and the serine/threonine kinase IRAK. The IRAK familyExpand

Decoding the Patterns of Self and Nonself by the Innate Immune System
The innate immune system evolved several strategies of self/nonself discrimination that are based on the recognition of molecular patterns demarcating infectious nonself, as well as normal andExpand

Phylogenetic perspectives in innate immunity.
The concept of innate immunity refers to the first-line host defense that serves to limit infection in the early hours after exposure to microorganisms. Recent data have highlighted similaritiesExpand
