Synthetic double-stranded DNA

Poly(dG:dC) is a poly(deoxyguanylic-deoxycytidylic) acid sodium salt. It is a repetitive synthetic double-stranded DNA sequence of poly(dG-dC)•poly(dC-dG).

Intracellular poly(dG:dC) is detected by several cytosolic DNA sensors (CDS), such as cGAS, DAI, DDX41, IFI16 and LRRFIP1, triggering the production of type I interferons (IFNs).

This induction of IFN appears to be mediated by the endoplasmic reticulum protein STING. Moreover, Poly(dG:dC) activates the cytosolic DNA sensor AIM2 (absent in melanoma 2) to trigger inflammasome formation.

Poly(dG:dC) is also available complexed with the cationic lipid transfection reagent LyoVec™ to facilitate its uptake.

Description

Poly(deoxyguanylic-deoxycytidylic) acid (Poly(dG:dC)) is a synthetic repetitive double-stranded DNA (dsDNA).
Intracellular poly(dG:dC) is detected by several cytosolic DNA sensors (CDS), such as cGAS [1], DAI [2], DDX41 [2, 3], IFI16 [2, 3] and LRRFIP1 [2, 4], triggering the production of type I interferons (IFNs). This induction of IFN appears to be mediated by the endoplasmic reticulum protein STING [1, 4, 5]. Moreover, Poly(dG:dC) activates the cytosolic DNA sensor AIM2 (absent in melanoma 2) to trigger inflammasome formation, leading to the secretion of the pro-inflammatory cytokines IL-1β and IL-18 [6].

Responses of B16-Blue IFNalpha/beta cells to dsDNA and dsRNA

Responses of B16-Blue™ IFNα/β cells to dsDNA and dsRNA:

B16-Blue™ IFNα/β cells were stimulated with increasing concentrations of poly(dA:dT), poly(dG:dC) or 5’ppp-dsRNA complexed extemporaneously with the transfection reagent LyoVec™.
After 24h incubation, induction of type I IFNs was assessed by determining the levels of SEAP using QUANTI-Blue™, a SEAP detection medium.
