Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play a critical role in early innate immunity to invading pathogens by sensing microorganisms. These evolutionary conserved receptors recognize highly conserved structural motifs only expressed by microbial pathogens, called pathogen-associated microbial patterns (PAMPs). Stimulation of TLRs by PAMPs initiates a signaling cascade leading to the secretion of proinflammatory cytokines following NF-κB activation. To date ten human and twelve murine TLRs have been characterized, TLR1 to TLR10 in humans, and TLR1 to TLR9, TLR11, TLR12 and TLR13 in mice, the homolog of TLR10 being a pseudogene.
TLR5 recognizes flagellin from both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Activation of the receptor stimulates the production of proinflammatory cytokines, such as TNF-α, through signaling via the adaptor protein MyD88 and the serine kinase IRAK [1, 2]. TLR5 can generate a proinflammatory signal as a homodimer suggesting that it might be the only TLR participating in flagellin recognition . However, TLR5 may require the presence of a co-receptor or adaptor molecule for efficient ligand recognition and/or signaling .
