Interferon regulatory factor-inducible SEAP Reporter Monocytes

THP1-Blue™ ISG cells were specifically designed for monitoring the interferon signaling pathway in a physiologically relevant cell line.

THP1-Blue™ were derived from the human THP-1 monocyte cell line by stable integration of an interferon regulatory factor (IRF)-inducible SEAP reporter construct.
As a result, THP1-Blue™ ISG cells allow the monitoring of IRF activation by determining the activity of SEAP.
The levels of IRF-induced SEAP in the cell culture supernatant are readily assessed with QUANTI-Blue™, a SEAP detection reagent.

THP1-Blue™ ISG cells are highly responsive to PRR agonists that trigger the IFN signaling pathway, such as LPS and transfected double-stranded nucleic acid.


Cells were incubated with 10 ng/ml Pam3CSK4 (TLR1/2), 10 µg/ml poly(I:C) (TLR3), 100 ng/ml LPS-EB UP (TLR4), 1 µg/ml FLA-ST UP (TLR5), 10 µg/ml R848 (TLR7/8), 100 ng/ml poly(I:C)/LyoVec (RLR), 10 ng/ml poly(dA:dT)/LyoVec (RLR), 100 ng/ml 5’pppRNA/Lyovec (RLR), 10 ng/ml TNF-α or 10 IU/ml IFN-α. After 24h incubation, the levels of IRF-induced SEAP were assessed from the cell culture supernatant using QUANTI-Blue™.

Description

THP1-Blue™ were derived from the human THP-1 monocyte cell line by stable integration of an interferon regulatory factor (IRF)-inducible SEAP reporter construct. 
THP1-Blue™ ISG cells express a secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase (SEAP) reporter gene under the control of an ISG54 minimal promoter in conjunction with five IFN-stimulated response elements. 
As a result, THP1-Blue™ ISG cells allow the monitoring of IRF activation by determining the activity of SEAP.
