The interaction of macrophage receptors with bacterial ligands.

Abstract:

Innate immune receptors play a key role in the early recognition of invading bacterial pathogens and initiate the crucial innate immune response. The diverse macrophage receptors recognise Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria via conserved structures on the bacterial surface and facilitate phagocytosis and/or signalling, providing the trigger for the adaptive immune response. These receptors include scavenger receptors, C-type lectins, integrins, Toll-like receptors and siglecs. The bacte...
