Abstract

The innate immune system senses pathogens largely through signals initiated by a collection of phylogenetically related proteins known as "Toll-like receptors" (TLRs), of which 10 representatives are encoded in the human genome. Our understanding of the sensing role played by the TLRs began with the positional cloning of a spontaneous mutation (Lpsd) in the gene encoding the mammalian lipopolysaccharide (LPS) receptor. Other key innate immunity proteins have been disclosed by germline mutagenesis, and are discussed in the present review.
