TLR2 and Nod2 mediate resistance or susceptibility to fatal intracellular Ehrlichia infection in murine models of ehrlichiosis.
 

Author(s): Partho Chattoraj, Qin Yang, Ankita Khandai, Omar Al-Hendy, Nahed Ismail

Journal: PLoS ONE. 2013 ;8(3):e58514.

 

Our murine models of human monocytic ehrlichiosis (HME) have shown that severe and fatal ehrlichiosis is due to generation of pathogenic T cell responses causing immunopathology and multi-organ failure. However, the early events in the liver, the main site of infection, are not well ...
