Monophosphoryl Lipid A from Salmonella minnesota R595

InvivoGen provides two preparations of Monophosphoryl Lipid A extracted from the lipopolysaccharide (LPS) of Salmonella minnesota Re595 (Re mutant), a rough strain of Gram-negative bacteria, for Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) activation:

MPLA-SM* and MPLA-SM are extracted from LPS using treatment with acid and heat followed by chromatography [1].  These preparations contain a mix of MPLA congeneric forms differing in the number of acyl chains. It has been suggested that this mix is responsible for the partial TLR4 agonist function of some preparations [2]. MPLA-SM* is a new reference in our catalog. It results from an improved process of MPLA-SM extraction. While MPLA-SM* and MPLA-SM have the same ability to activate murine TLR4, MPLA-SM* is more potent than MPLA-SM at inducing human TLR4 responses (see figures)

Key features:

  • Agonists of mouse and human TLR4
  • Negligible TLR2 activity
  • Each lot is functionally tested
     

Note: MPLA-SM* is also available in pre-clinical grade as MPLA-SM* Vaccigrade™.

MPLA-SM and MPLA-SM* induce a similar dose-dependent response in HEK-Blue™ mTLR4 cells. The cells were incubated with increasing concentrations of two preparations of S. minnesota monophosphoryl lipid A, MPLA-SM, and MPLA-SM*. After overnight incubation in HEK-Blue™ detection medium, a SEAP detection growth medium, the activation of mouse (m)TLR4 was assessed by determining the presence of SEAP in the supernatant. Data are expressed as optical density at 630 nm (±SEM).

MPLA-SM* is more potent than MPLA-SM at inducing a dose-dependent response in HEK-Blue™ hTLR4 cells. The cells were incubated with increasing concentrations of two preparations of S. minnesota monophosphoryl lipid A, MPLA-SM, and MPLA-SM*. After overnight incubation in HEK-Blue™ detection medium, a SEAP detection growth medium, the activation of human (h)TLR4 was assessed by determining the presence of SEAP in the supernatant. Data are expressed as optical density at 630 nm (±SEM).
