Synthetic diacylated lipoprotein - TLR2/6
100 µg

Synthetic diacylated lipoprotein

FSL-1 (Pam2CGDPKHPKSF) is a synthetic lipopeptide derived from Mycoplasma salivarium. It contains the same diacylglycerol structure as MALP-2 from M. fermentans but has a different peptide sequence.

The mycoplasmal lipopeptide FSL-1 contains a diacylated cysteine residue and is recognized by the TLR2/TLR6 heterodimer.

FSL-1 (Pam2CGDPKHPKSF) is a synthetic lipoprotein that represents the N-terminal part of the 44-kDa lipoprotein LP44 of Mycoplasma salivarium [1].

The framework structure of FSL-1 is the same as that of MALP-2, a Mycoplasma fermentans derived lipopeptide (LP), but they differ in the amino acid sequence and length of the peptide portion [2].

Mycoplasmal LP, such as FSL-1 and MALP-2, contain a lipolyated N-terminal diacylated cysteine residue, whereas bacterial LP contain a triacylated one.

This structural difference plays a crucial role in the initial recognition of microbial LP by the host innate immune system.

Mycoplasmal LP, such as FSL-1, are recognized by TLR2 and TLR6, whereas bacterial LP and Pam3CSK4, a synthetic LP, are recognized by TLR2 and TLR1 [3].

FSL-1 stimulation induces a MyD88-dependent signaling cascade leading to the activation of NF-κB and the production of proinflammatory cytokines.

FSL-1 exhibits a higher stimulatory activity than MALP2 when tested for its ability to induce the production of TNFa in macrophages and NF-κB in TLR2/TLR6 transfected HEK293 cells.
