26129889 This study showed a genetic association between Dectin-2 and pulmonary cryptococcosis.
25659141 human plasmacytoid dendritic cells directly recognize A. fumigatus hyphae via Dectin-2
24129160 our data show a requirement for Dectin-2 in alveolar macrophage induction of cysteinyl leukotrienes and in the initiation of airway inflammation.
23606632 The Dectin-2 possess a single extracellular conserved C-type lectin-like domain and are capable of mediating intracellular signalling either directly, through integral signalling domains, or indirectly, by associating with signalling adaptor molecules.
21283787 Thus, dectin-1 and dectin-2 control adaptive T(H)-17 immunity to fungi via Malt1-dependent activation of c-Rel.
15810886 human DECTIN-2 has a role in innate immunity
