Product Details

Alternative Name:Lipopolysaccharide from E. coli, Serotype O111:B4 S-form
Source:Smooth (S)-form LPS isolated and purified from E. coli O111:B4 by a modification of the phenol water extraction and PCP extraction method, converted to the uniform sodium salt form and dissolved in sterile pyrogen-free double distilled water.
Formulation:Liquid. Sterile, ready-to-use solution in pyrogen-free double distilled water.
Purity:Absence of detectable protein or DNA contaminants with agonistic TLR activity.
Activity:Specific activator of Toll-like receptor (TLR) 4. Does not activate TLR2 or other TLRs as determined with splenocytes and macrophages from TLR4 deficient mice. Smooth (S)-form LPS are commonly the preferred choice for whole animal studies, whereas Rough (R)-form LPS are primarily used in cellular in vitro activation studies.
Long Term Storage:+4°C
Use/Stability:Stable for at least 1 year after receipt when stored at +4°C.
Handling:Do not ingest. Wear gloves and mask when handling this product! Avoid contact through all modes of exposure. LPS compounds are highly pyrogenic. Avoid accidental injection; extreme care should be taken when handling in conjunction with hypodermic syringes. Use must be restricted to qualified personnel.
Regulatory Status:RUO - Research Use Only

Figure: TLR4-dependent proliferation of mouse splenocytesMethod: 4x105 mouse spleen cells were incubated in 0.2ml per well with 10µg/ml LPS or with medium only. Proliferation was determined in triplicates by 3H-thymidine incorporation.
