2'3'-cGAMP Control

STING agonist negative control

2’3’-cGAMP Control, also known as 2’5’-GpAp, is a linear dinucleotide analog after hydrolysis of cyclic guanosine monophosphate- adenosine monophosphate (2’3’-cGAMP) by phosphodiesterases [1]. 2’3’-cGAMP is a cyclic dinucleotide (CDN) produced in mammalian cells by cGAS (cGAMP synthase) in response to cytosolic DNA. CDNs including 2’3’-cGAMP bind the cytosolic DNA sensor STING (stimulator of interferon genes) and induce the production of type I interferons (IFNs). Due to its linear conformation, 2’5’GpAp is intended to serve as a negative control for 2’3’-cGAMP in type I IFN induction assays. The importance of dinucleotide conformation has been well established in bacteria, where RNA regulatory riboswitches are able to discriminate between biologically active CDNs and their corresponding linear dinucleotides [1-3].

To facilitate the study of CDNs and the IFN pathway, InvivoGen has developed stable reporter cells in the human monocytic THP-1 cell line. These cells express a reporter gene (either SEAP or the secreted Lucia luciferase) under the control of an interferon regulatory factors (IRF)-inducible promoter. As expected, 2’3’-cGAMP Control does not induce a type I IFN response in this immune cell model.
