MD-2, a 25-kDa secreted protein, is an accessory molecule required for efficient LPS-induced signaling through TLR4. MD-2 binds to both LPS and the extracellular domain of TLR4. Following synthesis, MD-2 is either secreted directly into the medium as a soluble, active protein, or binds directly to TLR4 in the endoplasmic reticulum before migrating to the cell surface. The secreted form of MD-2 forms a stable complex with LPS, in a CD14-dependent process [2]. The MD-2/LPS complex activates TLR4 in the absence of CD14 or free LPS. indicating that the activating ligand of TLR4 is the MD-2/LPS complex. MD-2 also increases TLR2 responsiveness to TLR2 ligands [3].
