Dr. Misfeldt’s laboratory is examining the expression and function of a family of innate pattern recognition receptors (PRRs), the toll-like receptors (TLRs).  Toll-like receptors function in pathogen sensing by recognizing molecular patterns associated with a broad range of pathogens including bacteria, viruses, fungi, and protozoa. TLRs initiate intracellular signaling pathways which culminate in the production of proinflammatory cytokines, chemokines, and antiviral molecules which shape the adaptive immune response.
