Day 86 (4p15.1-4p13): Three Toll-like receptor genes

F1.largehttp://jnci.oxfordjournals.org/content/97/7/525/F1.large.jpg

Day 86 has 41 protein-coding genes (browser view) including three genes for toll-like receptors: TLR1, TLR6, and TLR10.

These are essentially bacteria detectors for your immune system. While we previously saw TLR5 which detects bacterial flagella and TLR9 which detects foreign DNA, these TLRs detect proteins on the bacterial surface.
