Phenotype differs in humans and mice
Clearly, the in vivo immunologic phenotype of MyD88-/-differs significantly between humans and mice - that's the point of the Science paper (von Bernuth et al) cited on the page. That's why I reverted the 1 Nov 2008 edits by 126.96.36.199. In vitro assays for the response of a subset of cells to a particular ligand represent an in vitro phenotype, and indeed that has been found to be similar between mice and humans. So, MyD88 plays a very similar role in relevant pathway(s), but the animal's phenotype depends on more than this sort of assay. --Scray (talk) 20:40, 2 November 2008 (UTC)
Similarity in human and mice immunological phenotype
I believe that the re-edit is more accurate, and It reflects what has been stated by von Bernuth et al in the Science paper. —Preceding unsigned
- For my tuppence worth: When doing a lot of data entry onto a data base for hours and hours (and I speak from personal experience) it is convenient to not have to shift to get the capital M un-shift to get the lower case y up-shift yet again to get the capital D and down shift to get the 88. However, WP articles names should reflect the proper formate – which is MyD88. So I think that a re-name and then redirect MYD88 to MyD88 will serve its purpose and catch any enquirer and lead them to the article with the right formatted name. Also, if anybody knows how to properly pronounce it -please do tell. My-dee-eighty-eight sounds right to my ears because it throws up a mental picture of the letters and numbers MyD88 in my minds eye.--Aspro (talk) 23:08, 29 September 2015 (UTC)
