Scientific Background:Motile bacteria produce flagella, filaments composed mainly of the structural subunit flagellin. Flagellins are highly conserved molecules among both gram negative and gram positive bacteria, especially in 170 N-terminal and 100 C-terminal amino acids. In mammalian cells, Toll-like receptor 5 (TLR5) senses various flagellins resulting in activation of innate and adaptive immunity. The phase 1 flagellin FliC from Salmonella typhimurium (serotype H 'I'), a protein of 494 amino acids, upregulates production of chemokines and antimicrobial compounds in human epithelial cells and monocytes and induces maturation of dendritic cells. Historical results have shown that flagellin tests positive for activation of HEK-Blue™ hTLR5 reporter cell line (Invivogen) at concentrations >1 pg/ml.
