Abstract

In this issue of Immunity, Weber et al. show that LBP is multifunctional: able to sense not only LPS but peptidoglycan as well. The study helps to demystify the physical interactions that occur between host sensors and microbial inducers, and hints at one mechanism by which a limited number of receptors may engage a larger number of target molecules.
