A human homologue of the Drosophila Toll protein signals activation of adaptive immunity
The cloning and characterization of a human homologue of the Drosophila toll protein (Toll) is reported, which has been shown to induce the innate immune response in adult Dosophila.
Innate immune recognition.
Microbial recognition by Toll-like receptors helps to direct adaptive immune responses to antigens derived from microbial pathogens to distinguish infectious nonself from noninfectious self.

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 and
Monoclonal antibodies to nucleic acid-containing cellular constituents: probes for molecular biology and autoimmune disease.
The monoclonal anti-Sm antibody gives the same immunoprecipitation pattern, providing direct evidence that the Sm antigen resides on all these RNA-protein complexes, which will be valuable in deciphering the biological function of these ubiquitous small nuclear RNPs.
Phylogenetic perspectives in innate immunity.
In addition to its role in the early phase of defense, innate immunity in mammals appears to play a key role in stimulating the subsequent, clonal response of adaptive immunity.
