The book presents the latest findingson C-type lectin receptors, focusing on individual receptors and theirsignaling. In recent years there have been great advances in the understandingof the function of these receptors as a newly emerging family of pattern-recognitionreceptors (PRRs) for pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) anddamage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs). Comprising four parts:ITAM-coupled Activating Receptors; HemITAM-bearing Receptors; ITIM-bearingReceptors; and Other Receptors and Related Topics, this comprehensive reviewcovers a broad range of C-type lectin receptors. The updated information onC-type lectin receptors and their ligands provided will appeal to a widereadership, from basic immunologists to physicians and surgeons. In addition,sections on novel drug development make this a valuable resource forpharmaceutical scientists.
