Microbial infection initiates complex interactions between the pathogen and the host. Pathogens express several signature molecules, known as pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs), which are essential for survival and pathogenicity. PAMPs are sensed by evolutionarily conserved, germline-encoded host sensors known as pathogen recognition receptors (PRRs). Recognition of PAMPs by PRRs rapidly triggers an array of anti-microbial immune responses through the induction of various… 
Recognition of bacterial infection by innate immune sensors
TLDR
Recent findings on bacterial recognition by Toll-like receptors and NLRs and the signaling pathways activated by these sensors are reviewed.
processes , including innate and adaptive immunity , inflammation , cellular stress responses , cell adhesion , apoptosis and proliferation
TLDR
This review discusses the recent evidence describing a variety of viral effectors that have been shown to prevent NF-kB signalling and broadly classified them into three categories based on the site of inhibition within theNF-kB pathway.
Viral interference with innate immunity by preventing NF-κB activity.
TLDR
This review discusses the recent evidence describing a variety of viral effectors that have been shown to prevent NF-κB signalling, and can be broadly classified into three categories based on the site of inhibition within the NF-σB pathway.
Pattern recognition receptors: sentinels in innate immunity and targets of new vaccine
TLDR
The role of PRR cooperation in generating optimal immune responses required for protective immunity and the potential of targeting PRRs in the development of a new generation of vaccine adjuvants is discussed.
Balancing anti-viral innate immunity and immune homeostasis
TLDR
To avoid immunopathology, the sensing of viruses and signaling pathways is tightly regulated at the transcriptional and translational levels and determines the duration and magnitude of immune responses to ensure viral clearance and immune homeostasis.

Toll-like receptors: promising therapeutic targets for inflammatory diseases
TLDR
The emerging role of TLRs in the pathogenesis of inflammatory diseases and how targeting of TLR-targeting agents offers a promising therapeutic strategy for the prevention and treatment of various inflammatory diseases are discussed.
THE ROLE OF TOLL LIKE RECEPTORS IN INNATE IMMUNITY
TLDR
Study on TLRs indicate that these receptors are essential elements in host defence against pathogens by activating the innate immunity, a prerequisite to induction of adaptive immunity, and will bring the role of TLR mediated responses and increase the range to treat infectious and immune diseases.
