  1. TLR = toll-like receptor; CD = cluster of differentiation; CARD = caspase recruitment domain; NOD = nucleotide oligomerisation domain; CpG = cytosine-phosphate-guanine; LPS = lipopolysaccharide; HSP = heat shock protein; T = thymine; C = cytosine; G = guanine; A = adenine; Leu = leucine-rich repeat domain; fsins = frameshift insertion.
