Interaction Information:

Comment Tlr4 belongs to the family of Toll-like receptors that function as pattern recognition receptors that guard against microorganismal infections as part of the innate immune system. Tlr4 is stimulated by lipopolysaccharide (LPS), an endotoxin released by gram-negative bacteria. Tlr4 stimulation results in the activation of both Ikkb/NF-kappa-B and JNK/AP-1 signaling, culminating in the expression and secretion of pro-inflammatory cytokines/chemokines, including, Il1b, IL-6, Tnf, Mcp1.
