TLR3 agonist - dsRNA-based
TLR3 agonist - NexaVant™ (NVT)
InvivoGen provides NexaVant™, a double-stranded (ds) RNA-based TLR3 agonist and promising vaccine adjuvant. NexaVant™ (NVT) is a synthetic dsRNA of 424 base pairs produced by performing PCR-coupled bidirectional in vitro transcription of a viral nucleotide segment using T7 RNA polymerase technology.
NexaVant™ displays high purity (≥ 95%) and molecular homogeneity, therefore overcoming various obstacles of currently available dsRNA-based adjuvant candidates, including Poly(I:C) . It induces NF-κB and IRF responses in HEK-Dual™ hTLR3 cells stronger than Poly(A:U), although it is less potent than Poly(I:C) HMW (see figures). Moreover, it does not trigger serious toxicity in preclinical studies .
InvivoGen also offers NexaVant™ VacciGrade™, a high-quality pre-clinical grade suited for in vivo studies.

Molecular weight of NexaVant™ compared to Poly(I:C) HMW. Poly(I:C) high molecular weight (HMW) (10 µg) and NexaVant™ (100 ng) were visualized on 1% agarose gel. NexaVant™ appears as a single dsRNA band with a length of 424 bp (approximately 275 kDa), while Poly(I:C) migrated as a smear with an average size between 1 kb to 8 kb.
Comparison of TLR3 ligands (NF-κB and IRF responses). HEK-Dual™ hTLR3 cells were stimulated with 10 μg/ml (red) or 1 μg/ml (violet) of Poly(A:U), Poly(I:C) HMW, and NexaVant™. After overnight incubation, the TLR3-induced (A) NF-κB and (B) IRF responses were assessed by measuring SEAP and Lucia activity in the supernatant, respectively. Data are shown as optical density (OD) at 630 nm or in fold response over non-induced cells (mean + SEM).
NF-κB and IRF dose-responses of HEK-Dual™ hTLR3 cells to NexaVant™ and Poly(I:C) HMW. HEK-Dual™ hTLR3 cells were incubated with increasing concentrations of NexaVant™ and Poly(I:C) HMW. After overnight incubation, the TLR3-induced (A) NF-κB and (B) IRF responses were assessed by measuring SEAP and Lucia activity in the supernatant, respectively. Data are shown as optical density (OD) at 650 nm or in fold response over non-induced cells (mean + SEM).
