In humans, ten Toll-like receptor (TLR) paralogues sense molecular components of microbes, initiating the production of cytokine mediators that create the inflammatory response. Using N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea, we induced a germline mutation called Lps2, which abolishes cytokine responses to double-stranded RNA and severely impairs responses to the endotoxin(More)
The identification of the TLRs as key sensors of microbial infection has presented a series of new targets for drug development. The TLRs are linked to the most powerful inflammatory pathways in mammals. The question arises from the start: do we wish to stimulate TLR signaling in order to eradicate specific infections and/or neoplastic diseases? Or do we(More)
