• Persistent mycobacteria evade an antibacterial program mediated by phagolysosomal TLR7/8/MyD88 in human primary macrophages 

      Gidon, Alexandre; Åsberg, Signe; Louet, Claire; Ryan, Liv; Haug, Markus; Flo, Trude Helen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      Pathogenic mycobacteria reside in macrophages where they avoid lysosomal targeting and degradation through poorly understood mechanisms proposed to involve arrest of phagosomal maturation at an early endosomal stage. A ...
    • Sensing of HIV-1 by TLR8 activates human T cells and reverses latency 

      Meås, Hany Zakaria; Haug, Markus; Beckwith, Marianne Sandvold; Louet, Claire; Ryan, Liv; Hu, Zhenyi; Landskron, Johannes; Nordbø, Svein Arne; Tasken, Kjetil; Yin, Hang; Damås, Jan Kristian; Flo, Trude Helen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      During HIV infection, cell-to-cell transmission results in endosomal uptake of the virus by target CD4+ T cells and potential exposure of the viral ssRNA genome to endosomal Toll-like receptors (TLRs). TLRs are instrumental ...
