293XL/TLR7 cells were obtained by stable transfection of HEK293XL cells with a pUNO-TLR7 plasmid which expresses the human or murine TLR7 gene.

The control cell line of 293XL/TLR7 cells is 293XL/null cells

TLR7, which is abundantly expressed in lung, placenta, spleen and PBL, is phylogenetically close to TLR8 and TLR9 [1]. TLR7 recognizes small synthetic molecules such as loxoribine and R848, an imidazoquinoline compound [2]. TLR7 signaling involves the MyD88-dependent signaling cascade and induces the production of IFN-α, TNF-α and IL-12. Recently, single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) was identified as the natural ligand of TLR7 [3, 4]. ssRNA derived from HIV-1 or the influenza virus were shown to induce the production of proinflammatory cytokines in PDC. TLR7 signaling is abrogated by chloroquine indicating that it is dependent on endosomal acidification.

TLR and NOD induction profile in 293 clones

TLR and NOD induction profile of 293 clones :
293/TLR, NOD and control clones were transfected transiently with pNiFty-SEAP and stimulated with TLR and NOD ligands. After 16 hour stimulation, NF-κB-induced SEAP activity was assessed using QUANTI-Blue™, a SEAP detection medium.
