Murine TLR5 Neutralizing antibody (clone Q23D11) - Monoclonal Rat IgG2a
Murine TLR5 Neutralizing antibody - Monoclonal Rat IgG2a
Anti-mTLR5-IgG (clone Q23D11) is a monoclonal antibody specific for murine Toll-like receptor 5 (mTLR5). This monoclonal antibody was produced in hybridoma cells and purified by affinity chromatography.
Anti-mTLR5-IgG has been selected for its ability to efficiently neutralize the biological activity of mTLR5. The neutralizing activity was determined using HEK-Blue™ TLR5 cells. TLR5 recognizes flagellin from Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Activation of the receptor stimulates the production of proinflammatory cytokines through signaling via the adaptor protein MyD88.
- Reacts with murine TLR5
- Provided azide-free
- Each lot is functionally tested
Anti-mTLR5-IgG is a potent neutralization antibody. Increasing concentrations of Anti-mTLR5-IgG were incubated for 30 minutes with RecFLA-ST (30 pg/ml) prior to the addition of HEK‑Blue™ mTLR5 cells. After overnight incubation, secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase (SEAP) activity in the cell culture supernatant was assessed using QUANTI-Blue™ Solution. Data are shown in percentage (%) of neutralization.

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.
TLR5 recognizes flagellin from both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Activation of the receptor stimulates the production of proinflammatory cytokines, such as TNF-α, through signaling via the adaptor protein MyD88 and the serine kinase IRAK [1-3]. TLR5 can generate a pro-inflammatory signal as a homodimer suggesting that it might be the only TLR participating in flagellin recognition . However, TLR5 may require the presence of a co-receptor or adaptor molecule for efficient ligand recognition and/or signaling .
