Toll-like receptor 2 mediates the induction of IL-10 in corneal fibroblasts in response to Fusarium solu.

Abstract

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are key components of the innate immune system that detect microbial infection and trigger antimicrobial host responses. To determine the role of TLR2 in the expression of pro- and anti-inflammatory cytokines in corneal fibroblasts challenged by fungi, we used siRNA specific for TLR2 to knockdown TLR2 expression in telomerase… (More)
