TLRs and chronic inflammation


Ospelt, C; Gay, S (2010). TLRs and chronic inflammation. International Journal of Biochemistry & Cell Biology, 42(4):495-505.

Abstract

After the discovery of Toll-like receptors (TLRs), innate immune mechanisms came back in the focus of scientific research. With more and more mechanisms of TLR biology known, it has become clear that these and also other innate immune receptors are not only of crucial importance in the immune response to invading pathogens, but also play a role in the homeostasis of commensal flora and in the response to stress and danger signals. In this respect, increasing evidence is found that inappropriate quantity or quality of TLR ligands or aberrant response to TLR activation plays a role in a variety of chronic inflammatory diseases. In this review, an overview of the currently known TLRs and their signaling pathways is given and reports about their expression and activation in chronic inflammatory diseases are recapitulated.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
