Abstract: Background: TcpB is a TIR domain-containing protein form Brucella. Results: TcpB interacts with the host Toll-like receptor and adaptors, and its structure reveals a dimer essential for activity. Conclusion: TcpB forms a nonfunctional complex with host molecules, thus suppressing signaling. Significance: The work explains the structural and functional basis of immune suppression by the protein TcpB from a pathogenic bacterium.
