293XL/hTLR9-HA cells were obtained by stable transfection of HEK293XL cells with the pUNO-hTLR9-HA plasmid which expresses the human TLR9 gene fused at the 3'end to the influenza hemaglutinine (HA).

The control cell line for 293XL/hTLR9-HA cells is 293XL/null cells.

TLR9 is expressed in the endoplasmic reticulum of resting cells in contrast to most TLRs that are located on the plasma membrane [1]. TLR9 recognizes specific unmethylated CpG-ODN sequences, that distinguish bacterial DNA from mammalian DNA. TLR9 engages an intracellular signaling pathway that involves MyD88 leading to NF-κB translocation [2]. TLR9 recognizes different CpG motifs; the optimal sequences being GTCGTT and GACGTT for human TLR9 and murine TLR9 respectively [3]. TLR9 binds directly to CpG DNA and recognizes specifically CpG DNA that is unmethylated and single stranded [4].
