Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) serve to initiate inflammatory signalling in response to the detection of conserved microbial molecules or products of host tissue damage. Recent evidence suggests that TLR-signalling plays a considerable role in a number of inflammatory diseases, including atherosclerosis and arthritis. Agents which modulate TLR-signalling are, therefore, receiving interest in terms of their potential to modify inflammatory disease processes. One such family of molecules, the oxidised phospholipids (OxPLs), which are formed as a result of inflammatory events and accumulate at sites of chronic inflammation, have been shown to modulate TLR-signalling in both in vitro and in vivo systems. As the interaction between OxPLs and TLRs may play a significant role in chronic inflammatory disease processes, consideration is given in this review to the potential role of OxPLs in the regulation of TLR-signalling.
