Homeostatic TLR4 signaling protects the intestinal epithelium in health. Evidence suggests that perturbed TLR4 signaling is linked to carcinogenesis. We have recently demonstrated that the common human TLR4 variant D299G exerts pro-inflammatory effects and drives malignant tumor progression in human colon cancer.
