Agata Famà, Angelina Midiri, Giuseppe Mancuso, Carmelo Biondo, Germana Lentini, Roberta Galbo, Maria Miriam Giardina, Giuseppe Valerio De Gaetano, Letizia Romeo, Giuseppe Teti, Concetta Beninati,

Streptococcus pneumoniae (or pneumococcus) is a highly prevalent human pathogen. Toll-like receptors (TLRs) function as immune sensors that can trigger host defenses against this bacterium. Defects in TLR-activated signaling pathways, including deficiency in the adaptor protein myeloid differentiation factor 88 (MyD88), are associated with markedly increased susceptibility to infection. However, ... Read more >>
