About this book

This book offers comprehensive information on the polymorphisms of genes encoding pattern recognition receptors (PRRs). Following a short description of the general role of PRRs in the immune system, the structure and function of Toll-like and NOD-like receptors are examined in detail. The main focus is on the role of inherited variation in PRRs and their correlation to cancer and cardiovascular diseases. A review of all epidemiological investigations is included, and a concept of genomic risk markers for the prevention of various diseases is also discussed.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book comprehensively covers the polymorphism of genes-encoding pattern recognition receptors (PRRs) … . The book is intended for immunologists, cancer researchers, cardiologists, epidemiologists, microbiologists, and geneticists, as well as PhD, graduate, and undergraduate students of biomedical faculties and their lecturers. This is a unique book that analyzes the field of PRR genomics and its practical applications. … This book will be quite useful for a very wide audience.” (Omer Iqbal, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2014)
