Innate Immune Sensors Stimulate Inflammatory and Immunosuppressive Responses to UVB Radiation

By Richard L. Gallo and Jamie J. Bernard


Almost 40 years from when it was first reported that UVB radiation exposure would modulate immune signaling, the photoimmunology field is still trying to understand the mechanisms by which UVB initiates inflammatory responses and modulates immune recognition. This commentary focuses on the ability of Toll-like receptors (TLRs), specifically TLR4 (Ahmad et al., 2014) and ligands such as damage-associated molecular patterns (DAMPs) released from injured cells to stimulate innate immune signaling and inflammatory cytokine production following UVB irradiation
