CL429 is a chimeric compound that stimulates both TLR2 and NOD2 [1]. This compound is composed of murabutide (NOD2 ligand) covalently linked to Pam2C (TLR2 ligand) via a spacer.

Murabutide is derived from muramyl dipeptide (MDP), the smallest bioactive unit of bacterial peptidoglycan. Murabutide is recognized by the cytosolic sensor NOD2, which induces the activation of NF-κB through the adaptor RIP2 [2.] Pam2C is the lipid moeity of Pam2CSK4, which is recognized by the cell surface receptor TLR2 leading to the activation of NF-κB through the adaptor MyD88 [3]. NOD2 and TLR2 have been shown to exert synergistic effects on the production of cytokines [4-6].

CL429 was reported to possess a very potent adjuvant activity, with no apparent toxicity [1].

CL429 induces the activation of NF-κB in HEK-Blue™ TLR2 cells and HEK-Blue™ NOD2 cells, as well as in RAW-Blue™ cells, which express both TLR2 and NOD2.
