Where does innate immunity stop and adaptive immunity begin?

Abstract

The regulation of alternative splicing in the immune effector Dscam reported by Dong et al. (2012) in this issue of Cell Host & Microbe raises important questions about the nature of immune responses. Can we clearly define "adaptive" as being different from "innate" immunity, or is it time for a more flexible description?
