Recombinant flagellin from S. typhimurium - TLR5 agonist
Recombinant flagellin from S. typhimurium
Bacterial flagellin, a TLR5 ligand, is a potent T-cell antigen and has potential as a vaccine adjuvant. Unlike other TLR agonists, flagellin tends to produce mixed Th1 and Th2 responses rather than strongly Th1 responses.
Flagellin Flic VacciGrade™ is suitable for preclinical studies. It is prepared under strict aseptic conditions. It is guaranteed sterile and thoroughly tested for the presence of endotoxins.
This product is for research use only, not for use in humans.Back to the top

Flagellin FliC is a recombinant flagellin protein encoded by the fliC gene from Salmonella typhimurium. Bacterial flagellin, a TLR5 ligand, is a potent T-cell antigen and has potential as a vaccine adjuvant.
Unlike other TLR agonists, flagellin tends to produce mixed Th1 and Th2 responses rather than strong Th1 responses .
It has been demonstrated that flagellin can act as a potent adjuvant in flu vaccines [2, 3].
Furthermore, flagellin can also signal through the NLRC4 inflammasome , although it is not known whether this pathway contributes to the adjuvant activity of flagellin.
