ODN 2088 Control (ODN 20958)

ODN 2088 Control (ODN 20958)

TLR7/8/9 antagonists consist of short single-stranded oligodeoxynucleotides. They can inhibit CpG ODN-mediated activation of TLR9 and/or activation of TLR7/8.
ODN 2088 Control (ODN 20958) is a TLR7 antagonist. The sequence does not form G-tetrads.

Background information

TLR7, TLR8 and TLR9 are prominent members of the Toll-like-receptor (TLR) family recognizing pathogen-associated molecular patterns recognizing nucleic acids
. Activation of these TLRs can be inhibited by short single-stranded synthetical oligodeoxyribonucleotides (ODNs)
. Several classes of and motifs for inhibitory ODN have been identified


TLR7/8/9 Antagonists can be used to inhibit TLR7/8/9 mediated cellular responses, such as activation of immune cells, human PBMCs, murine splenocytes or isolated immune cells (e.g., B cells and pDCs).
TLR7/8/9 Antagonists can be used to inhibit signaling in TLR7/8/9-
expressing recombinant cell lines.
ODN 2088 Control (ODN 20958) is can be used as a sequence control for ODN 2088
and ODN 20959. ODN 2088 Control (ODN 20958) inhibits TLR7 mediated signalling but not TLR9 or TLR8 mediated signalling
