CpG ODNs are synthetic oligonucleotides that contain unmethylated CpG dinucleotides in particular sequence contexts (CpG motifs). These CpG motifs are present at a 20-fold greater frequency in bacterial DNA compared to mammalian DNA [1]. CpG ODNs are recognized by Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) leading to strong immunostimulatory effects.

ODN2006 (also known as ODN 7909 or PF-3512676) is a class B CpG ODN with a preference towards human TLR9. Class B CpG ODNs contain a full phosphorothioate backbone with one or more CpG dinucleotides. They strongly activate B cells but weakly stimulate IFN-α secretion.

ODN 2006 Control (also known as ODN 2173) contains GpC dinucleotides instead of CpGs and can be used as a negative control together with ODN 2006. Note: In some cell types, ODN 2006 Control may stimulate cell activity, including the production of cytokines [2].

ODN 2216 is a CpG ODN class A with a preference towards human TLR9. Class A CpG ODNs are characterized by a phosphodiester central CpG-containing palindromic motif and a phosphorothioate 3’ poly-G string. They induce high IFN-α production from plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDC) but are weak stimulators of TLR9-dependent NF-kB signaling.

ODN 2243 (also known as ODN 2216 Control) contains GpC dinucleotides instead of CpGs and can be used as a negative control together with ODN 2216.

ODN 2395 is a CpG ODN class C for human and mouse TLR9. Class C CpG ODNs combine features of both classes A and B. They contain a complete phosphorothioate backbone and a CpG-containing palindromic motif. Class C CpG ODNs induce strong IFN-α production from pDC and B cell stimulation.

ODN 2395 Control contains GpC dinucleotides instead of CpGs and can be used as a negative control with ODN 2395.
