293/TLR6 cells were obtained by stable transfection of HEK293 cells with a pUNO-TLR6 plasmid which expresses the murine TLR6 gene.

The control cell line of 293/TLR6 cells is 293/null.

TLR6, which is closely related to TLR1, is expressed predominantly in spleen, thymus, ovary and lung [1]. TLR6 cooperates with TLR2 to recognize diacylated lipoproteins (LPs) found in mycoplasma but is not required in the recognition of triacylated LPs found in bacteria [2]. This suggests that TLR6 is able to discriminate between the N-terminal lipoylated structures of LPs derived from mycoplasma and bacteria. TLR6 collaboration with TLR2 is essential for the recognition and signal transduction of diacylated LPs, such as MALP-2 and FSL-1 [2, 3], as well as heat-killed mycoplasma, indicating that TLR6 and TLR2 play a central role in recognizing mycoplasma [2].
