A central paradigm of immunology is that the innate immune system first detects infectious agents in peripheral tissues, shortly after a pathogen has breached an epithelial barrier. This detection event is mediated by pattern recognition receptors in phagocytes, which then migrate to draining lymph nodes, where information of a microbial encounter is conveyed to T and B lymphocytes to generate adaptive immunity. Through the study of fungal moieties, I will present data that challenge this model.
