TLR8, also designated as CD288 (cluster of differentiation 288),
is a member of the toll-like receptor (TLR) family. TLRs make up a family of pattern recognition receptors that play
important roles in the innate immune response. Broad classes of pathogens (e.g.
viruses, bacteria, and fungi) constitutively express a set of
mutation-resistant molecules called pathogen-associated molecular patterns
(PAMPs). These microbial molecular markers may be composed of proteins,
carbohydrates, lipids, nucleic acids and/or combinations thereof. Individual
TLRs recognize distinct pathogen-associated PAMPs, initiating signaling cascades
that promote the immune response. Structurally, TLRs are type I transmembrane
receptors that possess varying numbers of extracellular N-terminal leucine-rich
repeat (LRR) motifs, followed by a cysteine-rich region, a TM domain, and an
intracellular Toll/IL-1 R (TIR) motif. The TIR motif is common to the larger
IL-1 R/TLR superfamily. Human TLR8 is an endosomal receptor that recognizes single
stranded RNA (ssRNA), and can recognize ssRNA viruses such as Influenza,
Sendai, and Coxsackie B viruses. TLR8 binding to the viral RNA recruits MyD88
and leads to activation of the transcription factor NF-kB and an antiviral
