The TLR4/IL-8 Leeporter™ Luciferase Reporter cell line is a stably transfected HeLa cell line which expresses human TLR4, MD-2 and CD14 as well Renilla luciferase reporter gene under the transcriptional control of the IL-8 promoter. IL-8 is one of the major pro-inflammatory cytokines induced by ligand (such as LPS)-mediated Toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) activation. TLR4 is one of the key innate immune receptors, which is activated by LPS and can lead to sepsis upon dysregulation. The TLR4/IL-8 activation by LPS is shown in Figure 1.
- Monitor the TLR4 signaling pathway activity.
- Screen for activators or inhibitors of the TLR4 signaling pathway.
To passage the cells, detach cells from culture vessel with Trypsin/EDTA, add complete growth medium and transfer to a tube, spin down cells, resuspend cells and seed appropriate aliquots of cells suspension into new culture vessels. Subcultivation ration = 1:10 to 1:20 weekly. To achieve satisfactory results, cells should not be passaged over 16 times.
