CDS Ligand

ISD (interferon stimulatory DNA) is a 45-bp non-CpG oligomer from the Listeria monocytogenes genome.

When transfected into various cell types, including plasmacytoid and conventional DCs, macrophages and murine embryonic fibroblasts, ISD strongly enhances the expression of IFN-β [1].

This ISD-induced response is mediated by the STING-TBK1-IRF3 signaling axis [1-2].

ISD is also available complexed with the cationic lipid transfection reagent LyoVec™ to facilitate its uptake.

InvivoGen also provides ISD Control, a non-immunostimulatory single-stranded oligonucleotide with the same sequence as its double-stranded counterpart.
