Literature associating TLR3 and bacterial infectious disease
Toll-like receptor 3; Key component of innate and adaptive immunity. TLRs (Toll-like receptors) control host immune response against pathogens through recognition of molecular patterns specific to microorganisms. TLR3 is a nucleotide-sensing TLR which is activated by double-stranded RNA, a sign of viral infection. Acts via the adapter TRIF/TICAM1, leading to NF-kappa-B activation, IRF3 nuclear translocation, cytokine secretion and the inflammatory response; CD molecules
Synonyms: TLR3, TLR3p, hTLR3, D6RA51, O15455 ...
