Innate immune mechanism plays a crucial role in the immune defence of invertebrates. Innate immune system recognizes the invariant molecular components of pathogens; pathogen associated molecular patterns (PAMPs), through germline-encoded receptors. These receptors in the hosts recognizing these patterns are known as pathogen recognition receptors (PRRs). (more)
