Muramyldipeptide (L-L isomer, inactive)
MDP Control, the negative control for muramyl dipeptide (MDP), is an L-L isomer that does not activate NOD2. MDP is the minimal bioactive peptidoglycan motif common to all bacteria.
MDP has been shown to be recognized by NOD2 [1, 2]. This recognition is highly stereospecific of the L-D isomer. The core structure required for recognition of NOD2 is MurNAc attached to L-Ala and D-isoGln.
Replacement of L-Ala for D-Ala (or D-isoGln for L-isoGln) eliminates the ability of muramyl dipeptide to stimulate NOD2 . MDP Control contains L-Ala and L-isoGln.
