HEK293 clones expressing TLR4-MD2-CD14

293/TLR4-MD2-CD14 cells were obtained by stable co-transfection of HEK293 cells with the pUNO-TLR4, which expresses the human or murine TLR4 gene, and the pDUO2-MD2-CD14 plasmid which expresses the human or murine MD2 and CD14 genes.

The control cell line of 293/TLR4-MD2-CD14 cells is 293/null.

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.

TLR4, the first human TLR identified, is the receptor for Gram-negative lipopolysaccharide (LPS). The TLR4 gene was shown to be mutated in C3H/HeJ and C57BL/10ScCr mice, both of which are low responders to LPS [1]. However, TLR4 alone is not sufficient to confer LPS responsiveness. TLR4 requires MD-2, a secreted molecule, to functionally interact with LPS [2]. Furthermore, a third protein, called CD14, was shown to participate in LPS signaling, leading to NF-κB translocation. This signaling is mediated through several adaptor proteins: MyD88 TIRAP/Mal [3] , TRIF/TICAM1 and TRAM/TICAM2 [4].
