NOD1 Agonist - Meso‑lanthionine tri-peptide

NOD1 is a pattern recognition receptor that senses Gram‑ bacterial peptidoglycans (PGN), and more specifically the minimal motif γ-glutamyl-meso-diaminopimelic acid (iE-DAP) [1]. Synthetic agonists of NOD1 have been developed in various ways to enhance their potency and intracellular delivery: NOD1 preferentially detects tri-DAP peptides with an N-terminal lipophilic chain [1,2].

InvivoGen has developed C14-Tri-LAN-Gly which contains meso‑lanthionine instead of the meso-DAP moiety, a myristic lipophilic chain, and three peptides (Ala, Glu, Gly) [3]. Meso‑lanthionine is a diamino-type amino acid specific to the PGN of some Gram- bacteria such as Fusobacterium nucleatum [4]. C14-Tri-LAN-Gly has the advantage of being a single diastereoisomer, as opposed to other synthetic NOD1 agonists which are a mixture of L and D isomers.

Recognition of C14-Tri-LAN-Gly by NOD1 induces the activation of the NF-κB signaling pathway. While it activates both human and murine NOD1, it is the agonist of choice for murine NOD1 as it exhibits a ~10-fold better potency than the C12-iE-DAP and a ~100-fold better potency than the Tri-DAP.

NF-κB induction (SEAP reporter) by C14-Tri-LAN-Gly in HEK-Blue™  NOD1 reporter cells
NF-κB induction (SEAP reporter) by C14-Tri-LAN-Gly in HEK-Blue™  NOD1 reporter cells

Dose responses of HEK-Blue™ hNOD1 (panel a) and HEK-Blue™ mNOD1 (panel b) reporter cells stimulated with 0.1 ng/ml to 10 μg/ml of NOD1 agonists: iE-DAP (dark green), C12-iE-DAP (light green), Tri-DAP (blue) and C14-Tri-LAN-Gly (red). After overnight incubation, the NF-κB response was determined using QUANTI‑Blue™, a SEAP detection reagent, and by reading the optical density (OD) at 630 nm.
