TLR7/8 Agonist - minimal ssRNA motif of ssRNA40 with 6 UUGU repeats - complexed with LyoVec™

Activation of TLR7/8 by ORN06/LyoVec™
Activation of TLR7/8 by ORN06/LyoVec™

The oligoribonucleotide ORN06 contains six repeats of the UUGU sequence motif, identified as the minimal motif responsible for ssRNA40 immunoreactivity. ssRNA40, also known as R-1075, is a U-rich single-stranded (ss)RNA derived from the long terminal repeat of HIV-1, and a strong agonist of the human (h) Toll-like receptor 8 (TLR8) [1]. 

ssRNA derived from HIV-1 or the influenza virus were shown to induce the production of proinflammatory cytokines by activation of TLR7 and/or TLR8 [2].

Description

InvivoGen's ORN06 is complexed with the cationic lipid LyoVec™ to protect it from degradation and facilitate its uptake. Moreover, phosphorothioate linkages were incorporated in order to extend the effective molecular lifetime by minimizing extra and intracellular nuclease degradation. ORN06/LyoVec™ is a strong agonist of human TLR8 and mouse TLR7, as verified by using our HEK-Blue™ reporter cell lines. Moreover, it slightly activates human TLR7 in our HEK-derived cells (see figure)

 

Key features of ORN06/LyoVec™

  • Strong activator of human TLR8 and mouse TLR7
  • ssRNA40 and its negative control ssRNA41 are available
  • Complexed with LyoVec™ 
  • Each lot of ORN06/LyoVec™ is functionally tested

NF-κB response of HEK-Blue™-derived cells to ORN06/LyoVec™. HEK-Blue™ cells expressing hTLR7, mTLR7, or hTLR8 were cultured in HEK-Blue™ Detection reagent and stimulated with increasing concentrations of ORN06/LyoVec™. After 24h incubation, the NF-κB-induced SEAP activity was assessed by measuring the SEAP level in the supernatant. Data are shown as optical density (OD) at 650 nm (mean ± SEM). Of note, HEK-Blue™ Null* comprises data from parental cell lines HEK-Blue Null1, HEK-Blue Null1-v, HEK-Blue Null2-k.

Details

Single-stranded RNA (ssRNA) has been identified as the natural ligand of TLR7 and TLR8 [1, 2]. ssRNA derived from HIV-1 or the influenza virus were shown to induce the production of proinflammatory cytokines in pDC.

This induction was reproduced using U-rich single-stranded RNAs, such as polyU or GU-rich (ssRNA40) ODNs complexed with cationic lipids to protect them from degradation.

According to Diebold et al., this activation is sequence-independent as long as the ssRNAs contain several uridines in close proximity [1].

However, recent studies suggest sequence-dependent recognition of U-rich ssRNAs by TLR7 and TLR8.

They demonstrate that AU-rich and GU-rich oligoribonucleotides (ORNs) are capable of activating TLR8, whereas only GU-rich ORNs are able to stimulate TLR7 [3].

ORN 06 contains 6 repeats of the UUGU sequence motif, identified as the minimal motif responsible for ssRNA40 immunoactivity [3].
