Toll-like receptor 6 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the TLR6 gene.[3] TLR6 has also been designated as CD286 (cluster of differentiation 286).

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the toll-like receptor (TLR) family which plays a fundamental role in pathogen recognition and activation of innate immunity. TLRs are highly conserved from Drosophila to humans and share structural and functional similarities. They recognize microbe-associated molecular patterns (MAMPs) that are expressed on infectious agents, and mediate the production of cytokines necessary for the development of effective immunity. The various TLRs exhibit different patterns of expression. This receptor functionally interacts with toll-like receptor 2 to mediate cellular response to bacterial lipoproteins.[4]
