Scientific Data

Immunohistochemistry TLR4 antibody in Human Prostate by Immunohistochemistry (IHC-P). View Larger

TLR4 in Human Prostate. TLR4 was detected in immersion fixed paraffin-embedded sections of human prostate using Goat Anti-Human TLR4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1478) at 10 µg/mL overnight at 4 °C. Before incubation with the primary antibody tissue was subjected to heat-induced epitope retrieval using Antigen Retrieval Reagent-Basic (Catalog # CTS013). Tissue was stained using the Anti-Goat HRP-DAB Cell & Tissue Staining Kit (brown; Catalog # CTS008) and counterstained with hematoxylin (blue).

TLR4 was detected in immersion fixed human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) using Goat Anti-Human TLR4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1478) at 10 µg/mL for 3 hours at room temperature. Cells were stained using the NorthernLights™ 557-conjugated Anti-Goat IgG Secondary Antibody (yellow; Catalog # NL001) and counterstained with DAPI (blue).

Neutralization IL‑8 Secretion Induced by LPS and Neutralization by Human TLR4 Antibody. View Larger

IL‑8 Secretion Induced by LPS and Neutralization by Human TLR4 Antibody. Lipopolysacharide (LPS) stimulates IL-8 secretion in the HEK293 human embryonic kidney cell line co-transfected with human TLR4 and MD-2, in a dose-dependent manner (orange line), as measured by the Human CXCL8/IL-8 Quantikine ELISA Kit (Catalog # D8000C). IL-8 secretion elicited by LPS (75 ng/mL) is neutralized (green line) by increasing concentrations of Goat Anti-Human TLR4 Antigen Affinity-purified Polyclonal Antibody (Catalog # AF1478). The ND50 is typically 1.5-7.5 µg/mL.

Background: TLR4

TLR4 is a 100 kDa type I transmembrane glycoprotein that belongs to the mammalian Toll-Like Receptor family of pathogen pattern recognition molecules. In the literature molecular weights correspondent to 110 kDa and 130 kDa were reported for TLR4 (1). MD-2, also known as ESOP-1, is a 25 kDa secreted protein that is required for TLR4-mediated responses to bacterial lipopolysaccharide (LPS) (1‑4). The human TLR4 cDNA encodes an 839 amino acid (aa) precursor that contains a 23 aa signal sequence, a 608 aa extracellular domain (ECD), a 21 aa transmembrane segment, and a 187 aa cytoplasmic domain. TLR4 contains 21 leucine rich repeats in its ECD and one cytoplasmic Toll/IL-1 receptor (TIR) domain (5). The ECD of human TLR4 shares approximately 25% aa sequence identity with other TLRs and 60%‑74% aa sequence identity with bovine, equine, feline, mouse, rat, and porcine TLR4. The human MD-2 cDNA encodes a 160 aa precursor with an 18 aa signal sequence (5). Human MD-2 shares 20% aa sequence identity with MD-1 and 62%‑64% aa sequence identity with bovine, mouse, and rat MD-2. MD-2 associates with TLR4 on monocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, and B cells (6‑8). MD-2 expression is required for cell surface localization of TLR4 and for optimal LPS-induced TLR4 signaling (8, 9). MD-2 also forms soluble disulfide-linked homo-oligomers which can interact with TLR4 (7). Through a domain separate from its TLR4-binding domain, MD-2 extracts LPS from circulating CD14-LPS complexes and carries the LPS into a ternary complex with TLR4 (10‑12). The interaction of MD-2/LPS with TLR4 induces receptor oligomerization and the triggering of an inflammatory response (13). Increased levels of plasma MD-2 in septic shock patients sensitizes MD-2 non-expressing epithelial cells to LPS and promotes widespread tissue inflammation (14).
