TLR7 Agonist - Guanosine analog

Loxoribine is a guanosine analog derivatized at position N7 and C8. This nucleoside is a very powerful stimulator of the immune system but until recently the mechanism responsible for this immunostimulatory activity was unknown [1]. It appears that similarly to imiquimod, a small synthetic antiviral molecule, loxoribine activates the innate immune system through Toll-like receptor 7 and that this activation requires endosomal maturation [2]. Loxoribine recognition is restricted to TLR7.
