Abstract

It has been well established that Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are expressed by keratinocytes and respond to their respective ligands to initiate immune responses. However, it appears that keratinocytes, via differential activation of TLRs, may play a key role in determining the type of subsequent cutaneous immune response generated against a particular pathogen.
