Concept #1: Pattern Recognition Receptors (PRRs)

Concept #2: Pattern Recognition Receptors (PRRs)

Practice: Which of the following are PRRs least likely to detect?

Concept #3: Pattern Recognition Receptors (PRRs)

Practice: Toll-like receptors (TLRs) bind molecules on pathogens. Why is this helpful to the immune response?

Concept #4: Pattern Recognition Receptors (PRRs)

Practice: Which of the following is not considered a MAMP (Microbe/Pathogen-Associated Molecular Pattern)?

Concept #5: Pattern Recognition Receptors (PRRs)

Practice: Why are NOD-like receptors (NLRs) important for macrophage cells?

Concept #6: Pattern Recognition Receptors (PRRs)

Practice: What defining features of viral RNA allows the RIG-like receptors to distinguish infecting viral RNA from the host cell’s RNA?

Practice: In addition to peptidoglycan, which molecule(s) unique to bacteria would PRRs recognize?

Practice: Toll-like receptors are receptor proteins on ___________.

Practice: Which type of pattern recognition receptor when bound to MAMPs triggers the formation of the inflammasome?

Practice: Toll-like receptors:

Practice: ______ on phagocytes bind to PAMPs on bacteria, triggering uptake & destruction of the bacterial pathogens?
