R Vitamin D–mediated Antimicrobial Immune Response. The human immune response to microbial pathogens depends on the activation of several pattern recognition receptors known as the Toll-like receptors. Once activated, these receptors may induce the expression of a series of antimicrobial peptides that then destroy the invading pathogens. Susceptibility to tuberculosis infection (Mycobacterium tuberculosis) is associated with vitamin D deficiency. The mechanism by which vitamin D regulates antimicrobial actions is unknown.
