FITC labeled CpG oligonucleotide - Human / Mouse TLR9 ligand

CpG   ODNs are synthetic oligonucleotides that contain unmethylated CpG   dinucleotides in particular sequence contexts (CpG motifs). These CpG   motifs are present at a 20-fold greater frequency in bacterial DNA   compared to mammalian DNA. They have been shown to induce a coordinated   set of immune responses based on the activation of immune cells   primarily involved in the recognition of these molecules.

ODN 2395 FITC is a C-class CpG ODN specific for human / mouse TLR9. ODN 2395  FITC can  be used to evaluate CpG ODN cellular uptake and localization  by  confocal laser-scanning microscopy (excitation 495 nm, emission 520  nm)  or flow cytometry.

CpG ODNs are synthetic oligonucleotides that contain unmethylated CpG dinucleotides in particular sequence contexts (CpG motifs) [1].
These CpG motifs are present at a 20-fold greater frequency in bacterial DNA compared to mammalian DNA. CpG ODNs are recognized by Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) leading to strong immunostimulatory effects [2].

Three types of stimulatory CpG ODNs have been identified, types A, B and C, which differ in their immune-stimulatory activities [3-4]. Type A CpG ODNs are characterized by a phosphodiester central CpG-containing palindromic motif and a phosphorothioate 3’ poly-G string. They induce high IFN-α production from plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDC) but are weak stimulators of TLR9-dependent NF-kB signaling. Type B CpG ODNs contain a full phosphorothioate backbone with one or more CpG dinucleotides. They strongly activate B cells but stimulate weakly IFN-α secretion. Type C CpG ODNs combine features of both types A and B. They contain a complete phosphorothioate backbone and a CpG-containing palindromic motif. Type C CpG ODNs are potent inducers of IFN-α from pDC and strong B cell activators [5, 6].

ODN 2395 is a type C CpG ODN [7].
