- Macrophages play central roles in innate immunity and are an important bridge between innate and adaptive immunity.
- Toll like receptor also plays a key role during the course of adaptive immunity.
- Additionally, many other proteins, not necessarily involved in adaptive immunity, mediate specific high-affinity interactions.
- There is growing evidence that G-CSF also exerts profound immunoregulatory effects in adaptive immunity.
- Therefore, IL-18 should be seen as a unique molecule that constitutes a critical link between innate and adaptive immunity.
- The innate and adaptive immunity of the host work cooperatively during the course of recognition of and fight against fungi.
