Redundant and cooperative interactions between TLR5 and NLRC4 in protective lung mucosal immunity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa.

Abstract

Flagellin is the major structural component of flagella expressed by Pseudomonas aeruginosa (PA) and other bacteria. This protein has been shown to activate the Toll-like receptor TLR5 and the Nod-like receptor Nlrc4/Ipaf, culminating in the expression of innate cytokines and antimicrobial molecules. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that TLR5 and… (More)
