Lipopolysaccharides (from Salmonella minnesota), TLRgrade™Supplier: Enzo Life Sciences
Rough (R)-form LPS, isolated and purified from Salmonella minnesota R345 (Rb mutant) by a modification of the PCP extraction method, converted to the uniform sodium salt form.
Strong activator of Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4). Does not activate TLR2 or other TLRs as determined with splenocytes and macrophages from TLR4 deficient mice. No further re-extraction required. Smooth (S)-form LPS are commonly the preferred choice for whole animal studies, whereas Rough (R)-form LPS are primarily used in cellular in vitro activation studies.
