293/hTLR6-HA cells were obtained by stable transfection of HEK293 cells with the pUNO-hTLR6-HA plasmid which expresses the human TLR6 gene fused at the 3'end to the influenza hemaglutinine (HA).

The control cell line for 293/hTLR6-HA cells is 293/null.

Description

TLR6, which is closely related to TLR1, is expressed predominantly in spleen, thymus, ovary and lung [1]. TLR6 cooperates with TLR2 to recognize diacylated lipoproteins (LPs) found in mycoplasma but is not required in the recognition of triacylated LPs found in bacteria [2]. This suggests that TLR6 is able to discriminate between the N-terminal lipoylated structures of LPs derived from mycoplasma and bacteria. TLR6 collaboration with TLR2 is essential for the recognition and signal transduction of diacylated LPs, such as MALP-2 and FSL-1 [2, 3], as well as heat-killed mycoplasma, indicating that TLR6 and TLR2 play a central role in recognizing mycoplasma [2].
