The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the Toll-like receptor (TLR) family which plays a fundamental role in pathogen recognition and activation of innate immunity. TLRs are highly conserved from Drosophila to humans and share structural and functional similarities. They recognize pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) that are expressed on infectious agents, and mediate the production of cytokines necessary for the development of effective immunity. The various TLRs exhibit different patterns of expression. This gene is expressed most abundantly in peripheral blood leukocytes, and mediates host response to Gram-positive bacteria and yeast via stimulation of NF-kappaB. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
TLR2 involved in several pathways and played different roles in them. We selected most pathways TLR2 participated on our site, such as Phagosome, PIK-Akt signaling pathway, Toll-like receptor signaling pathway, which may be useful for your reference. Also, other proteins which involved in the same pathway with TLR2 were listed below. Creative BioMart supplied nearly all the proteins listed, you can search them on our site.
TLR2 has several biochemical functions, for example, Toll-like receptor binding, diacyl lipopeptide binding, lipopolysaccharide binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by TLR2 itself. We selected most functions TLR2 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with TLR2. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
TLR2 has direct interactions with proteins and molecules. Those interactions were detected by several methods such as yeast two hybrid, co-IP, pull-down and so on. We selected proteins and molecules interacted with TLR2 here. Most of them are supplied by our site. Hope this information will be useful for your research of TLR2.
