Endogenous damage-associated molecular pattern (DAMP) molecules are released from cells during traumatic injury, allowing them to interact with pattern recognition receptors such as the toll-like receptors (TLRs) on other cells and subsequently, to stimulate inflammatory signaling. TLR4, in particular, plays a key role in systemic and remote organ responses(More)
High-mobility group box 1 (HMGB1) is a 30-kDa DNA-binding protein that displays proinflammatory cytokine-like properties. HMGB1-dependent inflammatory processes have been demonstrated in models of sterile injury, including ischemia-reperfusion injury and hemorrhagic shock. Here, we tested the hypothesis that the systemic inflammatory response and associated(More)
BACKGROUND Toll-Like Receptor 4 (TLR4) signaling mediates early inflammation after cold ischemia-reperfusion (I/R). We hypothesized that the TLR4 coreceptor CD14, the intracellular adaptor proteins myeloid differentiation factor 88 (MyD88) and TIR domain-containing-adaptor inducing IFNbeta (TRIF) would be required for cold I/R induced inflammation. High(More)
