Toll like receptor (TLR) signaling plays a key role in the innate immune recognition and inflammatory regulation in both vertebrates and invertebrates. The expanded TLR signaling components, including 83 TLRs and 10 MyD88s, have been reported in the genome of the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas. In the present study, one endogenous TLR (designated CgTLR2) and two MyD88s (including a full-length CgMyD88-2 containing intact TIR domain and Death-domain, and a truncated CgMyD88s with only TIR domain) were identified from oyster C.
