TLR2 & NOD2-based adjuvant
Dual TLR2 & NOD2 agonist
CL429 is a chimeric compound that stimulates both TLR2 and NOD2. This compound is composed of murabutide (NOD2 ligand) covalently linked to Pam2C (TLR2 ligand) via a spacer.
CL429 was shown to induce synergistic human DC maturation in vitro and to significantly enhance both systemic and mucosal immunity against a vaccine antigen. The very potent adjuvant activity of CL429 is associated with no apparent toxicity. This activity seems to be mediated by an optimal DC maturation process, which induces strong B and T cell stimulation and autophagy.
CL429 VacciGrade™ is a high-quality pre-clinical grade.
CL429 VacciGrade™ is for research use only, and not for human or veterinary use.

VacciGrade™ is a high-quality pre-clinical grade. VacciGrade™ products are filter-sterilized (0.2 µm) and filled under strict aseptic conditions in a clean room*. The absence of bacterial contamination is assessed by a sterility test using a pharmacopeia-derived assay. The level of bacterial contaminants (endotoxins and lipoproteins) in each lot is verified using a LAL assay and/or a TLR2 and TLR4 reporter assay.
*Except for LPS VacciGrade™, which is prepared in a laminar flow hood dedicated to LPS.
CL429 is a chimeric compound that stimulates both TLR2 and NOD2. This compound is composed of murabutide (NOD2 ligand) covalently linked to Pam2C (TLR2 ligand) via a spacer .
NOD2 is highly expressed at the mucosal level [2, 3] and its activation induces the production of proinflammatory cytokines and autophagy [4, 5].
TLR2 appears to have a special role in T cell polarization and differentiation , mucosal homing receptor expression, and IgA production by human B cells .
CL429 was shown to induce synergistic human DC maturation in vitro and to significantly enhance both systemic and mucosal immunity against a vaccine antigen .
The very potent adjuvant activity of CL429 is associated with no apparent toxicity. This activity seems to be mediated by an optimal DC maturation process, which induces strong B and T cell stimulation and autophagy .
