Abstract

The innate immune response is a defense mechanism against infectious agents in both vertebrates and invertebrates, and is in part mediated by the Toll pathway. Toll receptor activation upon exposure to bacteria causes stimulation of Pelle/IRAK kinase, eventually resulting in translocation of the transcription factor NF-κB to the nucleus. Here we show that Pellino, a highly conserved protein interacting with activated Pelle/IRAK, acts as a positive regulator of innate immunity in Drosophila. © 2010 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
