Previous GeneCards Identifiers for TLR10 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the Toll-like receptor (TLR) family which plays a fundamental role in pathogen recognition and activation of innate immunity. TLRs are highly conserved from Drosophila to humans and share structural and functional similarities. They recognize pathogen-associated molecular patterns (PAMPs) that are expressed on infectious agents, and mediate the production of cytokines necessary for the development of effective immunity. The various TLRs exhibit different patterns of expression. This gene is most highly expressed in lymphoid tissues such as spleen, lymph node, thymus, and tonsil. Multiple alternatively spliced transcript variants which encode different protein isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2010]

TLR10 (Toll Like Receptor 10) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TLR10 include superficial basal cell carcinoma and tonsillitis. Among its related pathways are Immune System and Infectious disease. GO annotations related to this gene include transmembrane signaling receptor activity. An important paralog of this gene is TLR6.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TLR10 Gene
Participates in the innate immune response to microbial agents. Acts via MYD88 and TRAF6, leading to NF-kappa-B activation, cytokine secretion and the inflammatory response (By similarity).
