• A role for the adaptor proteins TRAM and TRIF in toll-like receptor 2 signaling 

      Nilsen, Nadra; Gregory I., Vladimer; Stenvik, Jørgen; Ørning, Mathias Pontus; Zeid-Kilani, Maria Vanessa; Bugge, Marit; Bergstrøm, Bjarte; Conlon, Joseph; Husebye, Harald; Amy, Hise; Fitzgerald, Katherine A.; Espevik, Terje; Lien, Egil (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
      Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are involved in sensing invading microbes by host innate immunity. TLR2 recognizes bacterial lipoproteins/lipopeptides, and lipopolysaccharide activates TLR4. TLR2 and TLR4 signal via the ...
    • Type I Interferon Induction by Neisseria gonorrhoeae: Dual Requirement of Cyclic GMP-AMP Synthase and Toll-like Receptor 4 

      Andrade, Warrison A; Agarwal, Sarika; Mo, Shunyan; Shaffer, Scott A; Dillard, Joseph P; Schmidt, Tobias; Hornung, Veit; Fitzgerald, Katherine A.; Kurt-Jones, Evelyn A.; Golenbock, Douglas T (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
      The innate immune system is the first line of defense against Neisseria gonorrhoeae (GC). Exposure of cells to GC lipooligosaccharides induces a strong immune response, leading to type I interferon (IFN) production via ...
