STING ligand

2’2’-cGAMP, cyclic [G(2’,5’)pA(2’,5’)p], is a synthetic cyclic di-nucleotide that binds STING (stimulator of IFN genes) and subsequently induces TBK1-IRF3-dependent production of IFN-β [1]. 2’2’-cGAMP is the isomer of cGAMP most similar to 2’3’-cGAMP in terms of STING binding and type I interferon induction [1].

Certain variants of STING are able to distinguish between noncanonical and canonical cGAMP [2]. cGAMP is more potent in activating type I IFN than c-di-IMP, c-di-AMP and c-diGMP, other cyclic dinucleotides that also bind STING [3].

Quality control:
- The biological activity is assessed by measuring induction of the interferon pathway in THP1-Blue™ ISG cells.
- The absence of endotoxins and other bacterial contaminants has been confirmed using HEK-Blue™ TLR4 and HEK-Blue™ TLR2 cells.


2’2’-cGAMP is provided as a lyophilized powder and is available in two quantities:
- 500 µg 2’2’-cGAMP
- 1.5 ml endotoxin-free water


- 1 mg (2 x 500 mg) 2’2’-cGAMP
- 1.5 ml endotoxin-free water

2’2’-cGAMP is shipped at room temperature and should be stored at -20°C. Product is sterile filtered prior to lyophilization.
