Suppressive oligonucleotide - TLR9, AIM2 and cGAS antagonist

ODN TTAGGG (A151), also known simply as A151, is a synthetic oligonucleotide (ODN) containing 4 repeats of the immunosuppressive TTAGGG motif commonly found in mammalian telomeric DNA [1].

This ODN was initially identified as a TLR9 antagonist that inhibits immune activation by CpG-containing ODNs [2].

Subsequently, additional targets for this inhibitor were found: by binding to the cytosolic DNA sensors (CDSs) AIM2 and IFI16, A151 prevents AIM2 inflammasome activation [3,4].

This ODN is also described as a cGAS inhibitor, acting through competition with DNA [1].

Overall, these findings show that ODN TTAGGG (A151) is a multiple pattern recognition receptors (PRR) suppressor that can prove useful for immunomodulatory studies.

TLR9 signaling inhibition

Dose-dependent inhibition of TLR9 activity in HEK-Blue™ hTLR9 cells. Cells were treated with the human CpG-ODN 2006 (1 μg/ml) in the presence of increasing concentrations of ODN TTAGGG (A151). After overnight incubation, the NF-κB response was determined using QUANTI-Blue™, a SEAP detection reagent. Data represent % inhibition of the signal.

Cells were primed with LPS (1 μg/ml) for 3 hours prior to treatment with 200 μg/ml MSU (NLRP3 inflammasome inducer) or 0.5 μg/ml Poly(dA:dT) complexes (AIM2 inflammasome inducer) in the presence of 0.5 μM Z-VAD (pan-capase inhibitor), Ac-YVAD-cmk (caspase-1 inhibitor), MCC950 (NLRP3 inflammasome inhibitor), VX-765 (caspase-1 inhibitor) and ODN TTAGGG (A151; AIM2 inhibitor). After overnight incubation, cell supernatants were added to HEK-Blue™ IL-1β cells for 16 hours. IL-1β levels were determined by assessing SEAP activity in the supernatant using QUANTI-Blue™.

Inhibition of CDS activity in THP1-Dual™ cells. Cells were pre-treated with increasing concentrations of ODN TTAGGG (A151) for 6 hours followed by stimulation with cytosolic double-stranded DNA (1 μg/ml). Prior to experimentation, the DNA was complexed with a transfection reagent to facilitate intracellular delivery. After overnight incubation, the IRF and NF-κB responses were determined using QUANTI-Luc™ and QUANTI-Blue™, respectively.
