    ..Bacterial RNA within streptococci was also a dominant stimulus for murine immune cells, highlighting the physiological relevance of RNA sensing in defense of infections. ..
  4. Eigenbrod T, Dalpke A. Bacterial RNA: An Underestimated Stimulus for Innate Immune Responses. J Immunol. 2015;195:411-8 pubmed publisher
    ..RNA modifications differ between eukaryotes and prokaryotes; thus, they can serve to define the innate pattern that is recognized. In this regard, we discuss the role of ribose 2'-O-methylation as a potential immune-escape mechanism. ..

    ..Thus, our data indicate the presence of a yet unidentified intracellular nucleic acid receptor involved in bacterial RNA-induced inflammasome activation and release of IL-1?. ..
