Mincle agonist - Synthetic analog of the cord factor

Trehalose-6,6-dibehenate (TDB) is a non-toxic synthetic analog of the mycobacterial cell wall component trehalose 6,6’ dimycolate (TDM, also known as cord factor). TDB was shown to rely on the C-type lectin Mincle and the signaling molecules Syk and Card9 to trigger innate immunity.

 

TDB VacciGrade™ is a high-quality pre-clinical grade.
TDB VacciGrade™​ is for research use only, and not for human or veterinary use.

VacciGrade™

VacciGrade™ is a high-quality pre-clinical grade. VacciGrade™ products are filter-sterilized (0.2 µm) and filled under strict aseptic conditions in a clean room*. The absence of bacterial contamination is assessed by a sterility test using a pharmacopeia-derived assay. The level of bacterial contaminants (endotoxins and lipoproteins) in each lot is verified using a LAL assay and/or a TLR2 and TLR4 reporter assay.
*Except for LPS VacciGrade™, which is prepared in a PSM dedicated to LPS.

TDB chemical structure

Trehalose-6,6-dibehenate (TDB) is a non-toxic synthetic analog of the mycobacterial cell wall component trehalose 6,6’ dimycolate (TDM, also known as cord factor).

TDB was shown to rely on the C-type lectin Mincle and the signaling molecules Syk and Card9 to trigger innate immunity [1]. Incorporation of TDB combined with the synthetic amphiphilic cationic lipid compound dimethyldioctadecylammonium (DDA) into liposomes, known as CAF01, has been shown to strongly enhance cellular and humoral responses against a protein antigen [2]. Adjuvanticity of the cationic DDA:TDB liposomes and sustained protection against disease challenge has been demonstrated in particular with a tuberculosis vaccine candidate [3, 4], and has good potential for application in a range of other diseases [5].
