Microbially cleaved immunoglobulins are sensed by the innate immune receptor LILRA2
Hisashi Arase's group (Immunochemistry) and others found that a receptor, LILRA2, recognizes immunoglobulins which are disrupted by microbial pathogens, and inhibits the pathogen growth. The research revealed a novel finding of host defense system for immune evasion, and deepens our understanding about the host defense system against infectious diseases.
