Titel:
Induction of iNOS by Chlamydophila pneumoniae requires MyD88-dependent activation of JNK. 
Abstract:
Innate immune cells produce NO via inducible NO synthase (iNOS) in response to certain infections or upon stimulation with cytokines such as IFN-gamma and TNF. NO plays an important role in host defense against intracellular bacteria including Chlamydophila pneumoniae as a result of its microbicidal activity. In MyD88-deficient mice, which succumb to C. pneumoniae infection, iNOS induction is impaired 6 days postinfection, although pulmonary levels of IFN-gamma and TNF are elevated as in wild-ty...    »
