Class A CpG oligonucleotide - Human TLR9 ligand

CpG oligonucleotides (ODNs) are synthetic ODNs that contain unmethylated CpG dinucleotides in particular sequence contexts (CpG motifs).

These CpG motifs are present at a 20-fold greater frequency in bacterial DNA compared to mammalian DNA. CpG ODNs activate Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9), leading to strong immunostimulatory effects.

ODN 2216 is a Class-A CpG ODN that preferentially binds to human TLR9.

Class A CpG ODNs are characterized by a phosphodiester central CpG-containing palindromic motif and a phosphorothioate 3’ poly-G string.

They induce high IFN-α production in plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDC) but are weak stimulators of TLR9-dependent NF-κB signaling.

Description

CpG ODNs are synthetic oligonucleotides that contain unmethylated CpG dinucleotides in particular sequence contexts (CpG motifs) [1]. These CpG motifs are present at a 20-fold greater frequency in bacterial DNA compared to mammalian DNA. CpG ODNs are recognized by Toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) leading to strong immunostimulatory effects [2].

Three types of stimulatory CpG ODNs have been identified, types A, B and C, which differ in their immune-stimulatory activities [3-4]. Type A CpG ODNs are characterized by a phosphodiester central CpG-containing palindromic motif and a phosphorothioate 3’ poly-G string. They induce high IFN-α production from plasmacytoid dendritic cells (pDC) but are weak stimulators of TLR9-dependent NF-κB signaling. Type B CpG ODNs contain a full phosphorothioate backbone with one or more CpG dinucleotides. They strongly activate B cells but stimulate weakly IFN-α secretion. Type C CpG ODNs combine features of both types A and B. They contain a complete phosphorothioate backbone and a CpG-containing palindromic motif. Type C CpG ODNs induce strong IFN-α production from pDC and B cell stimulation.

ODN 2216 is a CpG ODN type A with a preference for human TLR9.
