• Staphylococcus aureus wall teichoic acid is a pathogen-associated molecular
    pattern that triggers pro-inflammatory cytokine responses through langerin (CD207) on skin Langerhans cells.
  • A common genetic variation in langerin (CD207) compromises internalization
    of Staphylococcus aureus.
  • Synthetic wall teichoic acid provides new insights into the systemic and
    mucosal human antibody repertoire for Staphylococcus aureus glycotypes.
  • The C-type lectin receptor MGL senses N-acetylgalactosamine on the unique Staphylococcus aureus ST395 wall teichoic acid.
