Mechanisms of Lymphocyte Activation and Immune Regulation VII: Molecular Determinants of Microbial Immunity

The newest advancements within the zone of microbial immunity are explored and defined during this well timed quantity, together with new conceptual frameworks for the processing and presentation of peptides and nonpeptide antigens from microbes to T cells. Such experimental versions were instrumental in defining many of the pathways for producing protecting immune responses opposed to microbes.

Interestingly, similar susceptibility to S. aureus infection and tuberculosis have been reported in human populations carrying TLR2 polymorphisms [16–20]. Identification of the effects in such human states validates the use of murine knockout models to identify key pathways controlling predisposition to infection. Studies in twins have also provided arguments for ‘genetically programmed’ susceptibility to infection, when homozygous twins who have the same genome are compared with heterozygous twins who are genetically different.
