Two major TLR signaling pathways were demonstrated, namely, myeloid differentiation primary response protein (MyD)88-dependent pathway and Toll/ interleukin receptor 1 (TIR) domain-containing adaptor-inducing IFNbeta (TRIF)-dependent pathway (Fig. 4). With TLR stimulation, except TLR3, APC produced proinflammatory cytokines through MyD88 and activated mitogenactivated protein kinases (MAPK, Fig. 4a). APC produced type 1 IFN by utilizing TRIF through TLR3 stimulation, an intracellular TLR (Fig. 4b) [61].
