Dectin-1 Agonist - Beta-glucan from Schizophyllum commune

Beta-glucan from Schizophyllum commune - β(1➝3, 1➝6)-glucan

Schizophyllan (SPG) is a gel-forming β-glucan from the fungus Schizophyllum commune.

SPG is a high molecular weight (450 kDa) (1-3)-β-D-glucan that has a 1,6-β-monoglucosyl branch in every three 1,3-β-glucosyl residues on the main chain.

SPG binds to Dectin-1 [1] and triggers a signaling cascade leading to NF-κB activation. Detection of β-glucans by Dectin-1 receptor leads to the CARD9-dependent activation of NF-κB and MAP kinases [2].

Responses to b-glucans.

Responses to β-glucans.
RAW-Blue™ cells and HEK-Blue™ mDectin-1 cells, which express the mouse dectin-1a gene, were stimulated with 100 µg/ml of various β-glucans.
After 24h incubation, NF-κB activation was assessed by measuring the levels of SEAP (secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase) using the QUANTI-Blue™ assay.


Stimulatory activity of Dectin-1 ligands

Stimulatory activity of Dectin-1 ligands:
HEK-Blue™ hDectin-1a and HEK-Blue™ hDectin-1b cells were stimulated with 1 µg/ml or 10 µg/ml Dectin-1 ligands, respectively, and 10 µg/ml TDB.
After 24h incubation, Dectin-1-induced NF-κB activation was assessed by measuring the levels of SEAP using the QUANTI-Blue™ assay.
