Toll-like receptors are pattern recognition receptors with which hosts recognize pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMP). This recognition process is translated rapidly into a meaningful defense reaction. This form of innate host defense is preserved in the animal kingdom: invertebrates heavily depend on it; higher vertebrates also have an adaptive immune system. Both adaptive and innate immune systems are intertwined in that the former also depends on an intact innate recognition and… Expand
Evolution and species-specific conservation of toll-like receptors in terrestrial vertebrates
TLDR
The effect of evolution on the function of different TLRs and their specific conservations in different terrestrial vertebrate species is described and similarities and differences in evolutionary patterns of TLR orthologs among species as well as among TLR gene families are shown. Expand
A Comparative Review of Toll-Like Receptor 4 Expression and Functionality in Different Animal Species
TLDR
Current knowledge on the critical points of divergence between human and the mammalian species commonly used in vaccine research and development are focused on, in terms of molecular, cellular, and functional properties of TLR4. Expand
Toll-like receptors: an overview from invertebrates to vertebrates
TLDR
The aim of this review is to supply a schematic representation of a very complex, but still, fascinating story of Toll/TLR gene diversification. Expand
To con protection: TIR-domain containing proteins (Tcp) and innate immune evasion.
TLDR
The current state of knowledge on the possible roles and mechanisms of action of bacterial encoded Tcp, with different modes of action and roles in virulence, is reviewed. Expand
Functional expression of TLR5 of different vertebrate species and diversification in intestinal pathogen recognition
TLDR
Both the extra- and intracellular determinants of TLR5 receptors are crucial for compatibility with the species expression background and hence for proper receptor functionality, and provide a useful system to investigate bacteria- and host-specific differences in receptor activation. Expand
COMPARISON OF CELLULAR ASSAYS FOR TOLL-LIKE RECEPTOR ACTIVATION AND DEVELOPMENT OF A SPECIES-SPECIFIC REPORTER CELL LINE FOR CATTLE
Pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) form the first defence line of the immune system. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are the best known and the most examined of the PR receptors. In the last severalExpand
Innate immunity: complex specificity
TLDR
The current Special Issue of Cell and Tissue Research presents an impressive collection of review articles detailing the exquisite capacity of the innate immune system to discriminate between self and non-self and between normal and damaged tissue and the close integration of this information with acquired immune responses.

TLDR
The traditional breeds and wild populations should be regarded as the resources of genetic variability accessible for these purposes and the targeting of these proteins in breeding could contribute to disease control. Expand
Mannose Receptor Ligands Regulate the Gene Expression of Toll-like Receptors in Chicken Monocytes
Pattern recognition receptors play an important role in distinguishing foreign organisms and triggering host defense responses. In this study, we present evidence for differential immune responses inExpand
Structural characterisation of Toll-like receptor 1 (TLR1) and Toll-like receptor 6 (TLR6) in elephant and harbor seals.
TLDR
This study characterises members of the Toll-like receptor (TLR) 1 superfamily from both harbour and elephant seals, identifying variations which will help to understand these species-specific innate immune responses, potentially aiding the development of specific vaccine-adjuvants for these species.
