ODN 2006 VacciGrade™

CpG ODN 2006 (ODN 7909) is a synthetic immunostimulatory oligonucleotide (ODN) that contains unmethylated CpG dinucleotides.
ODN 2006 is a class B CpG ODN and is a ligand of choice for human TLR9. It strongly activates B cells but weakly stimulates IFN-α secretion in pDCs. CpG ODN 2006 generates Th1-dominant immune responses.

ODN 2006 VacciGrade™ is prepared under strict aseptic conditions. It is guaranteed sterile and thoroughly tested to confirm the absence of endotoxins. ODN 2006 VacciGrade™ is suitable for preclinical studies.

ODN 2006 VacciGrade™ is for research use only; it is not for use in humans.

ODN 2006 VacciGrade™ is a preclinical grade preparation of the CpG ODN 2006. It is prepared under strict aseptic conditions and is tested for the presence of endotoxins. ODN 2006 VacciGrade™ is guaranteed sterile and its endotoxin level is ODN 2006 sequence: 5’-tcgtcgttttgtcgttttgtcgtt-3’ (24 mer)


• 1 mg of sterile lyophilized ODN 2006 VacciGrade™
• 10 ml sterile endotoxin-free physiological water (NaCl 0.9%)

ODN 2006 VacciGrade™ is shipped at room temperature and should be stored at -20°C for up to 1 year. Upon resuspension, prepare aliquots of ODN 2006 VacciGrade™ and store at -20°C. Product is stable 6 months at -20°C when properly stored. Avoid repeated freeze-thaw cycles.



Synthetic oligodeoxynucleotides containing unmethylated CpG motifs (CpG ODNs), such as ODN 2006, have been extensively studied as adjuvants [1]. These CpG motifs are present at a 20-fold greater frequency in bacterial DNA compared to mammalian DNA [2]. CpG ODNs are recognized by TLR9, which is expressed exclusively on human B cells and plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDCs), thereby inducing Th1-dominated immune responses  [3]. Pre-clinical studies, conducted in rodents and non-human primates, and human clinical trials have demonstrated that CpG ODNs can significantly improve vaccine-specific antibody responses  [1].

Three types of stimulatory CpG ODNs have been identified, types A, B and C, which differ in their immune-stimulatory activities  [4-5]. Furthermore, CpG ODNs activate TLR9 in a species-specific manner  [6]. ODN 2006 is a type B CpG ODN specific for mouse TLR9. Type B CpG ODNs contain a full phosphorothioate backbone with one or more CpG dinucleotides and can strongly activate B cells  [4]. ODN 2006 has been tested as an adjuvant in numerous animal models  [7-9]. Research has demonstrated that ODN 2006 is an effective adjuvant for stimulating both antibody [8-9] and interferon-mediated cellular immune responses [9].
