Toll-like receptor 4 is a sensor for autophagy associated with innate immunity.


Autophagy has recently been shown to be an important component of the innate immune response. The signaling pathways leading to activation of autophagy in innate immunity are not known. Here we showed that Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) served as a previously unrecognized environmental sensor for autophagy. Autophagy was induced by lipopolysaccharide (LPS) in… (More)
