TLR5 deficient - IL1-β SEAP reporter HEK293 cells
3-7 x 10e6 cells
TLR5 deficient, IL-1β reporter cells
HEK-Blue™ KD-TLR5 cells are derived from the HEK293 cell line, which endogenously expresses TLR5 and the IL-1β receptor (IL-1R).
This cell line features an NF-κB-inducible SEAP reporter gene and was engineered to knock-down the expression of TLR5 to avoid activation of NF-κB upon flagellin-induced TLR5 stimulation.
The knockdown of TLR5 permits the analysis of flagellin specifically for its NLRC4 stimulating activity.
Binding of IL-1β to IL-1R initiates a signaling cascade leading to the activation of NF-κB and the subsequent production of SEAP. Detection of SEAP in the supernatant of HEK-Blue™ KD-TLR5 cells can be readily assessed using the QUANTI-Blue™ assay.
THP1-NLRC4 and HEK-Blue™ KD-TLR5 cells were co-cultured and stimulated with increasing concentrations of ultrapure flagellin from S. typhimurium (FLA-ST UP), B. subtilis (FLA-BS UP) or P. aeruginosa (FLA-PA UP), or monosodium urate (MSU, an NLRP3 inflammasome inducer which requires prior priming of THP-1 cells).
After 24h incubation, IL-1β-induced NF-κB activation was assessed by measuring the levels of SEAP using the QUANTI-Blue™ assay. When cultured alone, HEK-Blue™ KD-TLR5 cells do not respond to flagellin.

HEK-Blue™ KD-TLR5 cells are designed to monitor bioactive IL-1β secreted by THP-1 cells upon flagellin-induced NLRC4 activation.
Levels of IL-1β secreted into the supernatant of THP-1 cells can be monitored using the HEK-Blue™ KD-TLR5 cell line.
THP1-NLRC4 and HEK-Blue™ KD-TLR5 cell lines can be used sequentially (option 1) or co-cultured to save time (option 2).
