It is notable that representatives of each of the sea urchin families of expanded factors (TLR, NLR, and SRCR) are part of an immune circuit in vertebrates where the DMBT1
protein, structurally very similar to the sea urchin multidomain SRCR factors, acts downstream of TLR and NLR recognition in gut immunity (Rosenstiel et al., 2007).
