In their own defense, tissues send a panoply of signals that initiate immunity and guide the choice of effector class. T(H)1-T(H)2 and T(reg) is far too simple a representation of the breathtaking variety of the resulting responses. 
Perception of Damaged Self in Plants1[OPEN]
Plants use specific receptor proteins on the cell surface to detect host-derived danger signals released in response to attacks by pathogens or herbivores and activate immune responses against them.
Tissue-based class control: the other side of tolerance
TLDR
This Essay offers a new perspective on how immune responses are regulated and suggests that the class of an immune response is primarily tailored to fit the tissue in which the response occurs.
Immune homeostasis in the respiratory tract and its impact on heterologous infection.
The price of immunity
TLDR
The protective and pathogenic effects of host–commensal microbiota mutualism on the immune response are discussed and some examples of collateral tissue and systemic damage caused by immunity to pathogens are illustrated.
Immunological Danger Signals
TLDR
The conventional role of the immune system has been viewed as the first line of defence discriminating self from nonself, but in the past decade, the innate immune response has proven to be more advanced sensing signals of danger, such as pathogen-specific molecules or endogenous host-derived signals released during cellular damage, while remaining unresponsive to normal host molecules, dietary antigens or commensal bacteria.
Microenvironmental impact on lung cell homeostasis and immunity during infection
TLDR
The lung is a vital organ devoted mainly to gas exchange with an external environment that may be contaminated with various life-threatening pathogens and inert particles and the dynamics of such cellular interactions within the lung are focused on.
Nod-Like Receptors: Cytosolic Watchdogs for Immunity against Pathogens
TLDR
Better decoding microbial strategies that are evolved to circumvent NLR sensing will provide clues for the development of rational therapies aimed at curing and/or preventing common and emerging immunopathologies.

Hydrophobicity: an ancient damage-associated molecular pattern that initiates innate immune responses
TLDR
It is proposed that immune responses are initiated by pathogen-associated molecular patterns or by tissue-derived danger/alarm signals and these two groups of molecules might not be mutually exclusive.

TLDR
The possibility that the immune system does not care about self and non-self, that its primary driving force is the need to detect and protect against danger, and that it does not do the job alone, but receives positive and negative communications from an extended network of other bodily tissues is discussed.
The Danger Model: A Renewed Sense of Self
TLDR
A model of immunity based on the idea that the immune system is more concerned with entities that do damage than with those that are foreign is outlined.
Phenotype and function of intestinal dendritic cells.
TLDR
Knowing about the involvement of DC subpopulations in the regulation of mucosal immunity may well provide a basis for the development of novel vaccines and therapeutics.
Autoreactivity by design: innate B and T lymphocytes
TLDR
New studies have shed light on the principles and mechanisms that drive their unique development and function, and show their resemblance to another subset of innate lymphocytes, the natural killer cells.
Intraepithelial lymphocytes: exploring the Third Way in immunology
TLDR
The capacity of IELs to limit the dissemination of infectious pathogens and malignant cells and to control the infiltration of epithelial surfaces by systemic cells is reviewed.
Immunology of placentation in eutherian mammals
TLDR
The traditional way to study the immunology of pregnancy follows the classical transplantation model, which views the fetus as an allograft, but a more recent approach focuses on the unique, local uterine immune response to the implanting placenta.
Epithelial cells and their neighbors. III. Interactions between intraepithelial lymphocytes and neighboring epithelial cells.
TLDR
The data support the idea that the role of intraepithelial gammadelta-T cells is to monitor neighboring cells for signs of damage or disease, and play a unique role in the recruitment of inflammatory cells to the site of damage.
