293XL/hTLR8

293XL cell line expressing the human TLR8a gene

Show product

3-7 x 10e6 cells

293xl-htlr8

HEK293 clones expressing TLR8

293XL/TLR8 cells were obtained by stable transfection of HEK293XL cells with a pUNO-TLR8 plasmid which expresses the human TLR8 gene.

The control cell line of 293XL/TLR8 cells is 293XL/null cells.

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.

Description

TLR8 was identified together with TLR7 and TLR9 and is expressed more abundantly in PBL and lung [1]. Human TLR8 and TLR7 were reported to independently confer responsiveness to R848, an imidazoquinolone with antiviral activity. R848 induces the activation of NF-κB in HEK293 cells transfected with human TLR8 but not in HEK293 cells expressing murine TLR8, suggesting a species specificity [2]. Recently, single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) was identified as the natural ligand of human TLR83. GU-rich ssRNA oligonucleotides derived from HIV-1 were shown to activate DC and macrophages. TLR8 recognizes ssRNA in the endosomal compartment and leads to the secretion of cytokines [3].
