MPLA-SM is a potent activator of TLR4 with negligible TLR2 activity. MPLA-SM was extracted from LPS using treatment with acid and heat followed by chromatography. Preparations of natural MPLA, such as MPLA-SM, contain a mixture of 5, 6, and 7 acyl lipid A .
Note: Due to the intrinsic structural complexity of lipid A, some batch-to-batch variation may occur.
