murine TLR4-expressing HEK 293 cells
3-7 x 10e6 cells
HEK-Blue™-mTLR4 cells were obtained by co-transfection of the murine TLR4, MD-2 and CD14 co-receptor genes, and an inducible SEAP (secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase) reporter gene into HEK293 cells.
The SEAP reporter gene is placed under the control of an IFN-β minimal promoter fused to five NF-κB and AP-1-binding sites. Stimulation with a TLR4 ligand activates NF-κB and AP-1 which induce the production of SEAP.
Levels of SEAP can be easily determined with HEK-Blue™ Detection, a cell culture medium that allows for real-time detection of SEAP.
The parental cell line of HEK-Blue™ mTLR4 cells is HEK-Blue™ Null1-v cells.
HEK-Blue™ mTLR4 and HEK-Blue™ Null1-v cells (control cell line) were stimulated with various TLR and NOD agonists: Pam3CSK4 (TLR2 agonist; 100 ng/ml), Poly(I:C) (TLR3 agonist; 1 µg/ml), LPS-EB ultrapure (TLR4 agonist; 100 ng/ml), LPS-EB ultrapure (TLR4 agonist; 100 ng/ml), MPLA (TLR4 agonist; 100 ng/ml), FLA-ST (flagellin from S. typhimurium, a TLR5 agonist; 100 ng/ml), R848 (TLR7/8 agonist; 1 µg/ml), ODN 1826 (class B ODN; 10 µg/ml), Tri-DAP (NOD1 agonist; 1 µg/ml), MDP (NOD2 agonist; 1 µg/ml), and TNF-α (10 ng/ml). After a 24 hour-incubation, NF‑kB‑induced SEAP activity was assessed using HEK‑Blue™ Detection and reading the optical density (OD) at 655 nm. TNF-α has been included as a positive control. Non‑induced cells (NI) have been included as negative controls.
