Human TLR4 Neutralization - Monoclonal Mouse IgG1

Neutralizing activity of Anti-hTLR4-IgG
Neutralizing activity of Anti-hTLR4-IgG

Anti-hTLR4-IgG (clone W7C11) is a neutralizing monoclonal antibody specific for human Toll-like receptor 4 (hTLR4, CD284). It has been produced in hybridoma cells and purified by affinity chromatography. This antibody has been selected for its ability to efficiently neutralize the biological activity of hTLR4.

TLR4 primarily recognizes and is activated by lipopolysaccharide  (LPS) and its toxic moiety Lipid A [1].  At the cell surface, activation of TLR4 initiates the MyD88-dependent pathway, leading to the activation of NF-κB and the production of a pro-inflammatory response [2].

Toll-like receptors (TLRs) play a critical role in early innate immunity to invading pathogens by sensing microorganisms. These evolutionarily conserved receptors recognize highly conserved structural motifs only expressed by microbial pathogens, called pathogen-associated microbial patterns (PAMPs). Stimulation of TLRs by PAMPs initiates a signaling cascade leading to the secretion of proinflammatory cytokines following NF-κB activation. To date ten human and twelve murine TLRs have been characterized, TLR1 to TLR10 in humans, and TLR1 to TLR9, TLR11, TLR12, and TLR13 in mice, the homolog of TLR10 being a pseudogene.

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].
