TLR6 (human)

TLR6 Participates in the innate immune response to Gram- positive bacteria and fungi. Acts via MYD88 and TRAF6, leading to NF-kappa-B activation, cytokine secretion and the inflammatory response. Recognizes mycoplasmal macrophage-activating lipopeptide-2kD (MALP-2), soluble tuberculosis factor (STF), phenol-soluble modulin (PSM) and B.burgdorferi outer surface protein A lipoprotein (OspA-L) cooperatively with TLR2. Belongs to the Toll-like receptor family. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
Protein type: Receptor, misc.; Membrane protein, integral
Cellular Component: phagocytic vesicle membrane; integral to plasma membrane; plasma membrane
Molecular Function: transmembrane receptor activity; protein heterodimerization activity; receptor activity; diacylated lipoprotein binding
Biological Process: positive regulation of JNK activity; T-helper 1 type immune response; regulation of cytokine secretion; positive regulation of I-kappaB kinase/NF-kappaB cascade; detection of diacylated bacterial lipoprotein; positive regulation of interleukin-6 biosynthetic process; activation of NF-kappaB-inducing kinase; pathogen-associated molecular pattern dependent induction by symbiont of host innate immunity; detection of triacylated bacterial lipoprotein; signal transduction; nitric oxide metabolic process; toll-like receptor 2 signaling pathway; toll-like receptor 1 signaling pathway; MyD88-dependent toll-like receptor signaling pathway; defense response to bacterium; toll-like receptor signaling pathway; innate immune response; immune response; inflammatory response; toll-like receptor 4 signaling pathway; microglial cell activation during immune response
