Synthetic diacylated lipopeptide

Pam2CSK4 is a synthetic diacylated lipopeptide (LP). According to the current model, diacylated LPs induce signaling through TLR2/6.

However, it was also reported that Pam2CSK4 induces signaling in a TLR6-independent manner.

This finding suggests that both the lipid and peptide part of lipoproteins take part in the specificity of recognition by TLR2 heterodimers.

Description

Pam2CSK4 is a synthetic diacylated lipopeptide (LP). Bacterial lipoproteins are strong immune modulators that activate early innate host responses after infection.

LP analogues of these lipoproteins signal either through TLR2/1 or TLR2/6 heterodimers. According to the current model, triacylated LP like Pam3CSK4, are recognized by TLR2/1, whereas diacylated LP, such as FSL-1, induce signaling through TLR2/6.

However, it was reported that diacylated LP, such as Pam2CSK4, induce signaling in a TLR6-independent manner [1]. This finding suggests that both the lipid and peptide part of lipoproteins take part in the specificity of recognition by TLR2 heterodimers.

When combined with a TLR9 agonist, Pam2CSK4 was found to promote resistance against bacterial pneumonia via a TLR2-MyD88-dependent pathway [2]. It has also been demonstrated that Pam2CSK4 promotes IL-1β maturation and release from macrophages through an NLRP7-containing inflammasome [3].
