Human TLR4/MD-2/CD14 SEAP - (SEAPorter™) Stable Reporter Cell Line Summary

The TLR4/MD-2/CD14 reporter line can be used for TLR4-dependent functional assays as well as screening of TLR4 agonists or antagonists. The TLR4/MD-2/CD14 reporter cell line has been validated by a ligand dose response assay (Figure 1).

Contents: 3~4 x 10^6 cells
Biosafety Level: 2
The TLR4/MD-2/CD14 reporter cell line is a stably co-transfected cell line which expresses full-length human Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4), human MD-2, human CD14 and secreted alkaline phosphatase (SEAP) reporter genes under the transcriptional control of an NF-kB response element.

Human TLR4/MD-2/CD14 SEAP - (SEAPorterTM) Stable Reporter Cell Line [HEK293 cells stably transfected with a TLR4/MD-2/CD14/NF-kB/SEAP reporter construct - expresses full-length human TLR4, MD-2, CD14, and secreted alkaline phosphatase/SEAP under the control of an NFkB response element] used for evaluating the ability of different types of Carrageenan/CGN to bind and activate TLR4 signaling. SEAP was measured as an indicator of TLR4 activation with SEAPorterTM assay kit and CGN was found to not to activate the TLR4.

FAQs for TLR4/MD-2/CD14 Reporter Cell Line (NBP2-26503). (Showing 1 - 2 of 2 FAQs).

  1. Do the cell lines carry plasmids and is this why the selection agents are essential to grow the cells. Can the cells expand without losing their plasmids in the absence of selection agents? So what all plasmids are there for what all genes and what is the selection agent for the respective plasmids. Is SEAP also on plasmids?
    • This cell line contains 4 plasmids; TLR4, MD-2, CD14, and NF-kB-SEAP. This is why selection agents are essential when using this cell line. The 4 plasmids are selected using blasticidin, puromycin, zeocin and G418/Geneticin, respectively. SEAP is coupled to NFkB on a plasmid. I would encourage you to use the protocol for this product when growing your cells.
  2. Are there any normalization techniques that can be used in an assay to make the results more reliable and remove the variability of cell numbers?
    • I would recommend that you do not change the media during the whole cell assay. The optimal volume of ligand solution should not exceed 10% of the media volume of each well. In addition, I would recommend that you omit the selection agents during the whole cell assay. The selection agents are required only for cell maintanence.
