293XL/hTLR8-HA cells were obtained by stable transfection of HEK293XL cells with the pUNO-hTLR8-HA plasmid which expresses the human TLR8 gene fused at the 3'end to the influenza hemaglutinine (HA).

The control cell line for 293XL/hTLR8-HA cells is 293XL/null cells.

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]. Sequence-specific single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) was identified as the natural ligand of human TLR8 [3]. 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].
