Pacific hagfish

Eptatretus stoutii (Pacific hagfish) genome encodes variable lymphocyte receptors with leucine-rich repeats, which are also seen in human Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9). So I wish to raise the following question:

Does Pacific hagfish’s genome encode TLR(s)?

Addendum primum:

For a schematic figure of a hagfish, see here.
