[Regulation of Toll-like receptors-dependent inflammatory response].
This review focuses on endogenous factors responsible for controlling the TLR-dependent inflammatory response as well as on pharmacological therapies designed for regulating the innate immune response.
Signaling in innate immunity and inflammation.
Although the role of inflammation is to resolve infection and injury, increasing evidence indicates that chronic inflammation is a risk factor for cancer.
Sertoli cell-initiated testicular innate immune response through toll-like receptor-3 activation is negatively regulated by Tyro3, Axl, and mer receptors.
It is demonstrated thatTyro3 subfamily of receptor tyrosine kinases, Tyro3, Axl, and Mer (TAM), negatively regulate TLR3 signaling in Sertoli cells, which may participate in controlling the testicular innate immune responses to pathogens.
The RON Receptor Tyrosine Kinase Regulates IFN-γ Production and Responses in Innate Immunity
Results indicate that the RON receptor regulates both the production of and response to IFN-γ, resulting in enhanced susceptibility to endotoxin challenge.
Toll-like receptors: promising therapeutic targets for inflammatory diseases
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.
SOCS Proteins Participate in the Regulation of Innate Immune Response Caused by Viruses
The SOCS proteins structures and the function of each domain are reviewed, as well as the latest knowledge of the role of SOCs proteins in innate immune caused by viral infections and the mechanisms by which SOCS protein assist viruses to escape host innate immunity are discussed.
Innate Immunity Production and Responses γ Regulates IFN-The RON Receptor Tyrosine Kinase
The results indicate that the RON receptor regulates both the production of and response to IFN- (cid:1) , resulting in enhanced susceptibility to endotoxin assayed using a murine multiplex cytokine assay kit, LINCOplex.
IFN Amplification Loop TLR4 and TLR7/8 by Abrogating the Type I TLR2 Promotes Th2/Th17 Responses via
It is hypothesized that TLR2 tunes the phenotype of dendritic cells (DCs) activated through other TLRs, thereby fulfilling a crucial role in the modulation of the immune response.

It is shown that IRF-4 also interacts with MyD88 and acts as a negative regulator of TLR signaling, which may provide an insight into the complex regulatory mechanisms of MyD 88 signaling by IRFs.
Specificity in Toll-like receptor signalling through distinct effector functions of TRAF3 and TRAF6
It is shown that TRAF3 is essential for the induction of type I interferons (IFN) and the anti-inflammatory cytokine interleukin-10 (IL-10), but is dispensable for expression of pro- inflammatory cytokines, owing to defective IL-10 production.
Suppressor of cytokine signaling 1 negatively regulates Toll-like receptor signaling by mediating Mal degradation
The data identify a target of SOCS-1 that regulates TLR signaling via a mechanism distinct from an autocrine cytokine response and is a rapid and selective means of limiting primary innate immune response.
Twist mediates suppression of inflammation by type I IFNs and Axl
These results implicate Twist proteins in regulation of TNFα production by antiinflammatory factors and pathways, and provide a mechanism by which type I IFNs and Axl receptors suppress inflammatory cytokine production.
Negative regulation of Toll-like receptor-mediated immune responses
The various negative regulatory mechanisms that have evolved to attenuate TLR signalling to maintain this immunological balance are discussed.
Toll-like receptor (TLR) response tolerance: a key physiological "damage limitation" effect and an important potential opportunity for therapy.
Clinically, endotoxin/TLR response tolerance is thought to play an important part in susceptibility to reinfection in patients treated for severe sepsis, and undoing this downregulation or "re-booting" the immune system may be a useful therapeutic target in the post-septic patient.
Toll-like receptors in systemic autoimmune disease
Data are beginning to emerge showing that this is the case that in vivo activation of both autoreactive B cells and plasmacytoid dendritic cells by mammalian TLR ligands translates to an in vivo role in either the initiation or the progression of systemic autoimmune disease.
Negative regulation of cytokine signaling and immune responses by SOCS proteins
This review focuses on the molecular mechanism of the action of CIS/SOCS family proteins and their roles in immune regulation and inflammatory diseases including rheumatoid arthritis.
Toll-like receptor control of the adaptive immune responses
Recognition of microbial infection and initiation of host defense responses is controlled by multiple mechanisms and recent studies have provided important clues about the mechanisms of TLR-mediated control of adaptive immunity orchestrated by dendritic cell populations in distinct anatomical locations.
