"Myeloid differentiation protein-88 (MyD88) is a signal adaptor protein required for cytokine production following engagement of Toll-like receptors (TLRs) by their cognate ligands," scientists in the United States explained. "Activation of both TLR-3 and TLR-4, however, can engage signaling events independent of MyD88 expression."
"The relative importance of these MyD88-dependent and -independent signaling pathways in the macrophage response to lipopolysaccharide (LPS) is unknown," noted H. Bjorkbacka and colleagues at Massachusetts...
