Alternative Name(s): Toll Like Receptor 7


Test Description

Toll like receptor 7 (TLR-7) is a member of the Toll-like receptor (TLR) family, which plays a fundamental role in innate immune responses. Recognizing conserved, pathogen-expressed motifs called pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs), TLRs mediate defense responses by regulating the production of antimicrobial peptides and cytokines necessary for the development of effective immunity.
