Dendritic cells (DCs) are a special type of leukocytes able to alert the immune system to the presence of infections. They play a central role in the initiation of both innate and adaptive immune responses. This particular DC feature is regulated by the activation of specific receptors at the cell surface called Toll-like receptors (TLRs) that bind a number of microbial products collectively referred to as microbial-associated molecular patterns (MAMP). TLRs initiate a cascade of events, which… CONTINUE READING
