Assay Method Information

Assay Name:  Pharmacological Test
Description:  For TLR8 and TLR7 activity testing, HEK-Blue human TLR8 or TLR7 cells (Invivogen, San Diego, Calif., USA) are used, respectively. These cells are designed for studying the stimulation of human TLR8 or TLR7 by monitoring the activation of NF-κB. A SEAP (secreted embryonic alkaline phosphatase) reporter gene is placed under the control of the IFN-b minimal promoter fused to five NF-κB and AP-1-binding sites. Therefore the reporter expression is regulated by the NF-κB promoter upon stimulation of human TLR8 or TLR7 for 20 hours. The cell culture supernatant SEAP reporter activity was determined using Quanti Blue kit (Invivogen, San Diego, Ca, USA) at a wavelength of 640 nm, a detection medium that turns purple/blue in the presence of alkaline phosphatase. EC50 values were determined using Activity Base analysis (ID Business Solution, Limited).
