A Nonsense Mutation in TLR5 Is Associated with Survival and Reduced IL-10 and TNF-α Levels in Human Melioidosis

Abstract:

Background
Melioidosis, caused by the flagellated bacterium Burkholderia pseudomallei, is a life-threatening and increasingly recognized emerging disease. Toll-like receptor (TLR) 5 is a germline-encoded pattern recognition receptor to bacterial flagellin. We evaluated the association of a nonsense TLR5 genetic variant that truncates the receptor with clinical outcomes and with immune responses in melioidosis.

Methodology/Principle Findings
We genotyped TLR5 c.1174C>T ...
