The first line of defense against pathogenic microorganisms is set by the innate immune system which rapidly limits colonization and spread. To increase protection and produce immunological memory cells participating in the innate response initiate an adaptive immune response. Protection and immunoregulation by the innate immune system requires that a microbe is detected and physical contact is translated into altered gene expression of the infected cell
