Quick Reference


A major component of the cell wall of Gram-positive bacteria. It is amphiphilic with teichoic acid linked to glycolipid and, like lipopolysaccharide, is a virulence factor. LTA binds CD14 and CD36 and activates the production of inflammatory cytokines through toll-like receptor-2. It may also function as an adhesin.
