CD14-independent responses induced by a synthetic lipid A mimetic.


CRX-527 belongs to a new family of synthetic lipid A mimetics, the aminoalkyl glucosaminide 4-phosphates, which are considered as potential vaccine adjuvants or stand-alone immunotherapeutics to harness innate immune defenses. Since natural lipid A from bacterial LPS depends on membrane-bound (mCD14) or soluble CD14 for its TLR4 ligand activity, we… (More)
