Green List (high evidence)

Evidence Summary from Illumina curation team: The TLR7 gene encodes for toll -like receptor 7 protein, an endosomal receptor that plays a key role in innate and adaptive immunity. Toll-like receptors are pattern recognition receptors, which control host immune response against pathogens through recognition of molecular signatures. TLR7 recognizes uridine-containing single strand RNAs (ssRNAs) of viral origin or guanosine analog (reviewed by Freund et al. 2019). Tlr7 deficient mice show an increased susceptibility to West Nile Virus (Town et al. (2009) and recently, Mukherjee et al. (2019) identified TLR7 polymorphisms associated with susceptibility to viral infections in an East Asian population Mukherjee et al. (2019).
