Long-term control of Mycobacterium bovis BCG infection in the absence of Toll-like receptors (TLRs): investigation of TLR2-, TLR6-, or TLR2-TLR4-deficient mice.


Live mycobacteria have been reported to signal through both Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) and TLR4 in vitro. Here, we investigated the role of TLR2 in the long-term control of the infection by the attenuated Mycobacterium, Mycobacterium bovis BCG, in vivo. We sought to determine whether the reported initial defect of bacterial control (K. A. Heldwein et al… (More)
