The Toll-like receptor (TLR) family in mammal comprises a family of transmembrane proteins characterized by multiple copies of leucine rich repeats in the extracellular domain and IL-1 receptor motif in the cytoplasmic domain. Like its counterparts in Drosophila, TLRs signal through adaptor molecules (1). IL-1 receptor-associated kinases (IRAKs) are important mediators in the signal transduction of Toll/IL-1 receptor (TIR) family members (2). The cytoplasmic domains of TIR proteins interact with the adapter protein, MyD88. MyD88 then recruits IRAKs (IRAK-1, -2, and M), which in turn interact with other adapter molecules, such as TRAF6 to activate NF-kB and MAPK pathways. Recently, a new member of this family, IRAK-4 has been identified (3). IRAK-4 may act as an upstream activator of IRAK-1. IRAK-4 is important for LPS activation of TLRS. Mice lacking IRAK-4 are resistant to lethal doses of LPS and are also severely impaired in their responses to viral and bacterial challenges (4, 5).
