Vaccination with Borrelia burgdorferi outer surface protein (Osp) A can induce a protective response against Lyme disease and serves as a model to understand the generation of protective immune responses against the spirochete. The innate response to pathogens is activated by specific Toll-like receptors (TLRs) that recognize distinct pathogen-associated molecular patterns. TLR2 is of particular interest for B. burgdorferi research because TLR2 recognizes several pathogen-associated molecular… CONTINUE READING
