TLR8 is activated by 5ʹ-methylthioinosine, a Plasmodium falciparum-derived intermediate of the purine salvage pathway

The innate immune recognition of the malaria-causing pathogen Plasmodium falciparum (P. falciparum) is not fully explored. Here, we identify the nucleoside 5ʹ-methylthioinosine (MTI), a Plasmodium-specific intermediate of the purine salvage pathway, as a pathogen-derived Toll-like receptor 8 (TLR8)...
