Notwithstanding the involvement of epithelial pattern recognition receptors in triggering protective inflammatory responses, the epithelium functions as both a barrier and hostile environment.
Hemocytes were labeled with antibodies against three pattern recognition receptors that are well conserved across mammals and invertebrates: CD14, Toll-Like Receptor (TLR) 2 and TLR4.
Together with a class of pattern recognition receptors called Toll-like receptors (TLRs) at the surface of monocytes/macrophages and neutrophils, this complex induces second-messenger and signal transduction pathways (5).
TLRs are a type of pattern recognition receptor, which recognize patterns and molecules typically shared by pathogens.
Inflammatory caspases are activated within so-called inflammasomes, Cytosolic signalling platforms that are assembled by pattern recognition receptors upon the detection of pathogen- or host-derived danger signals.
