Abstract

All animals, including humans, live in symbiotic association with microorganisms. The immune system accommodates host colonization by the microbiota, maintains microbiota-host homeostasis and defends against pathogens. This Review analyses how one family of antibacterial pattern recognition molecules-the peptidoglycan recognition proteins-has evolved a fascinating variety of mechanisms to control host interactions with mutualistic, commensal and parasitic microorganisms to benefit both invertebrate and vertebrate hosts.
