Cloning and analysis of full length chicken MyD88 revealed an open reading frame which encodes a predicted protein sequence of 368 amino acids (aa). Two more chicken MyD88 isoforms with 299 and 376 residues are described in the literature [Qiu Y et al 2008, Lynn et al 2003]. The amino acid sequences of the chMyD88 368 and 376 residue isoforms are 99% identical, 97% identical to the 299 aa chMyD88 predicted peptide and 68% identical to human MyD88 (296 aa).

Chicken MyD88 is recruited to the activated hetero or homodimer of chTLR that is located either on plasma membrane (TLR4, TLR2/1, TLR5 and TLR15) or endosome membrane (TLR7 and TLR21).
