Abstract: We aimed to identify the impact of TLR2 and TLR4 and their intracellular signaling routes namely MyD88 and TRIF pathways on stem cell homing. We utilized a well-established intravital microscopic examination of the cremaster microvasculature. Our results showed that IR enhances stem cell-endothelial interaction. Our data explains the decisive role of TLR2 and TLR4 in stem cell homing following IR. Our results exhibited the importance of intracellular signaling pathways of TLRs with peculiar significance of MyD88 pathway in regulating stem cell trafficking after ischemia and reperfusion.
