The TLR (toll-like receptors) family of proteins are characterized by a highly conserved Toll homology (TH) domain, which is essential for Toll-induced signal transduction. TLR1, as well as the other TLR family members, are type I transmembrane receptors that characteristically contain an extracellular domain consisting of several leucine-rich regions along with a single cytoplasmic Toll/IL-1R-like domain. TLR2 and TLR4 are activated in response to lipopolysacchride (LPS) stimulation, which results in the activation and translocation of NFkB and suggests that these receptors are involved in mediating inflammatory responses. Expression of TLR receptors is highest in peripheral blood leukocytes, macrophages, and monocytes. TLR6 is highly homologous to TLR1, sharing greater that 65% sequence identity, and, like other members of TLR family, it induces NFkB signaling upon activation.
Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
Western Blot: 1:200-1:1000
Optimal dilutions to be determined by the researcher.
