Detection of pathogenic intestinal bacteria by Toll-like receptor 5 on intestinal CD11c+ lamina propria cells
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) recognize distinct microbial components and induce innate immune responses. TLR5 is triggered by bacterial flagellin. Here we generated Tlr5−/− 1mice and assessed TLR5Expand

ATL‐derived factor (ADF), an IL‐2 receptor/Tac inducer homologous to thioredoxin; possible involvement of dithiol‐reduction in the IL‐2 receptor induction.
HTLV‐I transformed T cells not only express a large number of interleukin‐2 receptors [IL‐2R/p55(Tac)], but also produce a factor named ATL‐derived factor (ADF) that augments the expression ofExpand
