Learning Objectives for "The Innate Immune System: Early Induced Innate Immunity: D2. PRRs "
After completing this section you should be able to perform the following objectives.
1. State the function of the following as they relate to innate immunity.
a*. pattern recognition receptors (PRRs)
b*. endocytic pattern recognition receptors
c*. signaling pattern recognition receptors
d*. danger-associated molecular patterns
e*. danger recognition receptors
2. Name 2 endocytic PRRs.
3. Name 2 signaling PRRs found on host cell surfaces.
4. Name 2 signaling PRRs found in the endosomes of phagocytic cells.
5. Name 2 signaling PRRs found on the host cell cytoplasm.
6*. Briefly describe the major difference between the effect of the cytokines produced in response to PAMPs that bind to cell surface signaling PRRs and endosomal PRRs.
