Mincle Agonist - Synthetic analog of the cord factor

Trehalose-6,6-dibehenate (TDB) is a synthetic analog of trehalose-6,6-dimycolate (TDM, also known as cord factor), which is the most studied immunostimulatory component of Mycobacterium tuberculosis [1].

TDB binds the C-Type lectin Mincle (macrophage-inducible C-type lectin) [1,2]. Upon TDB recognition Mincle interacts with the Fc receptor common γ-chain (FcRγ), which triggers intracellular signaling through Syk leading to CARD9-dependent NF-κB activation.
