Fungal infections represent a significant health burden, especially in immunocompromised individuals, yet many of the underlying immunological mechanisms involved in the recognition and control of these pathogens are unclear. The identification of the Toll-like receptors (TLRs) has shed new insights on innate microbial recognition and the initiation of immune responses; however, recent evidence indicates that the 'non-TLR' receptors also have a significant role in these processes, particularly… CONTINUE READING
