The Eyes of the Innate Immune System

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are a type of Pattern Recognition Receptor (PRR), found on the surface of innate immune system cells like macrophages. They help these cells “see” foreign molecules such as flagella, peptidoglycan, and lipopolysaccharide cell walls, and other Pathogen Associated Molecular Patterns (PAMPs). Toll-like receptors have nothing to do with cars paying tolls, in case you were wondering. They just play an important role in protecting you from foreign invaders. This TLR necklace would make a perfect gift for immunologists, people who love acronyms, epidemiologists, and starry-eyed pre-med students.
