C-Type Lectins in Immune Homeostasis, (PDF) emphasizes C-type lectin receptors, a newly emerging family of pattern-recognition receptors (PRRs) and an important part of the human innate immune system. Moreover, the authors highlight these receptors’ role in the recognition of pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) and damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) – one of the first steps in replying to foreign and potentially dangerous structures in the human body.
The respective chapters mainly examine various C-type lectin receptors, their related ligands, and signalling. In addition to offering clinicians and immunologists important insights from the latest research, they may also offer novel points of departure for future drug development.
