Toll-like Receptor Adaptor Protein Family Members
TRIF: TICAM-1; TIR-domain-containing adapter molecule 1; TIR-domain-containing adapter protein inducing IFN-beta; Toll-interleukin-1 receptor domain-containing adapter protein inducing interferon beta
Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play a critical role in innate immunity by providing a frontline defense mechanism against invading pathogens such as bacteria, fungi and viruses. They accomplish this by recognising evolutionarily conserved pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) which...
