STING agonist negative control (pGpA)

3’3’-cGAMP Control, also known as pGpA, is a linear dinucleotide analog that can be obtained after hydrolysis of cyclic guanosine monophosphate- adenosine monophosphate (3’3’-cGAMP) by phosphodiesterases [1]. 3’3’-cGAMP, a second messenger molecule produced in bacteria, binds the cytosolic DNA sensor STING (stimulator of interferon genes) and induces the production of type I interferons (IFNs). Due to its linear conformation, pGpA is intended to serve as a negative control for 3’3’-cGAMP in type I IFN induction assays.

The importance of dinucleotide conformation has been well established in bacteria, where RNA regulatory riboswitches are able to discriminate between biologically active CDNs and their corresponding linear dinucleotides [1-3].
