  • As PGRP-LCx recognition of peptidoglycans activates Imd and ultimately Relish, the outcome of the interaction with Pims is lack of availability to peptidoglycans and consequently suppression of the (Imd) immune response.

  • "Friendly" bacteria, on the other hand, despite containing peptidoglycans in their wall exist peacefully inside Drosophila's gut.

  • Since peptidoglycans are widely present in bacteria the next question would be to find if the regulatory system here described applies to other host-microorganisms interactions, including those involving humans.

    Scientific Blogging

  • The activation of this immune pathway is triggered by peptidoglycans - sugars found on the bacterial wall - and results in the activation of a molecule called Relish.

    Scientific Blogging

  • Results from microscopic observation and separation of the cell's soluble and insoluble components suggested, however, that PIMS acted, not by destroying PGRP-LCx but by misplacing it, away from its usual localisation - the plasma membrane - resulting in an incapability of the immune system to see peptidoglycans and consequently of getting activated.
