Non-catalytic pattern recognition receptors


« Hide More detailed introduction

This section concentrates on those pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) encoded by the human genome which are non-catalytic DNA-sensing proteins. Like other PRRs, these proteins facilitate the induction of an innate immune response upon detection of pathogens, via a variety of signalling pathways.

Catalytic receptor PRRs included in the Guide To PHARMACOLOGY are:
Toll-like receptors (TLRs)
Nucleotide-binding oligomerization domain-like receptors (NLRs, also known as NOD-like receptors), and
RIG-I-like receptors (RLRs)
