The function of NOD2 in antigen presenting cells

Abstract:

Crohn’s disease (CD), a chronic inflammatory condition of the gut affecting 1:1000 of western populations, is thought to arise from a dysregulated immune response in a genetically susceptible individual. Polymorphisms in the ligand recognition domain of an intracellular pattern recognition receptor (PRR), NOD2, remain the strongest genetic risk factor for the development of CD. NOD2 directs autophagy in human DCs to facilitate bacterial destruction and antigen presentation; the CD-variant-...
