TLR7/8 Agonist - Thiazoquinoline compound

CL075 (3M002) is a thiazoloquinolone derivative that, alike the base analog R848 (Resiquimod), induces differential TLR7 and/or TLR8  responses in human and murine immune cells.

CL075 was originally described as a human TLR8 (hTLR8) agonist because it triggers a potent NF-κB activation in hTLR8 reporter cells when compared to hTLR7 reporter cells [1].
In human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs), CL075 induces the production of TNF-α and IL-12, and to a lesser extent IFN-α. This cytokine profile is similar to the one induced by the hTLR8 agonist ssRNA40 [1]. CL075 also induces the NF-κB-dependent production of IL-1α/β, IL-6, IL-8, MIP-1αβ, and MIP-3αβ pro-inflammatory cytokines [1]. CL075 efficiently stimulates cytokine production from monocytes and myeloid dendritic cells (DCs) among human PBMCs [1]. This compound has been used to optimize the ex vivo maturation of monocyte-derived DCs for developing DC-based anti-pathogen or anti-tumor vaccines [2]. 

Using our reporter cell lines HEK-Blue™ hTLR7, HEK-Blue™ hTLR8, HEK-Blue™ mTLR7, and HEK-Blue™ mTLR8, we established that CL075 is a TLR7/8 agonist. CL075 is ~10 times more potent for hLTR8 activation than for hTLR7. It also activates murine TLR7 (mTLR7), but not mTLR8. 


Key features of CL075:

  • Agonist of hTLR7 and hTLR8 with higher potency towards hTLR8.
  • Agonist of mTLR7.
  • Each lot of CL075 is highly pure (>95%) and functionally tested.
