Anti-TLR2 Antibodies

Antibodies against human and murine TLR2

InvivoGen provides a collection of monoclonal antibodies targeting human and murine Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR2) for neutralization and detection.

TLR2 is involved in the recognition of a wide array of microbial molecules. TLR2 recognizes peptidoglycan, lipoteichoic acid, and lipoprotein from Gram-positive bacteria, lipoarabinomannan from mycobacteria, and zymosan from the yeast cell wall.

TLR2 cooperates with TLR6 in response to diacylated mycoplasmal lipopeptides [1], and associates with TLR1 to recognize triacylated lipopeptides [2,3].

Simultaneous expression of the extracellular and intracellular domains of both TLR1 and TLR2 is essential for ligand recognition and subsequent ligand-induced signal activation [4]. Furthermore, pathogen recognition by TLR2 is strongly enhanced by CD14 [5].
