Desialylated LPS of
increases human TLR2 response. (A) NF-ĸB stimulation and (B) IL-8 expression by HEK-Blue™-hTLR2 cells were determined after 24 h of incubation with different concentrations of LPS isolated from CIII-1GEN wild type (white bars), Heydar wild type (grey bars) and respective Δhbs2 mutants (striped bars). The TLR2 response between wild type and mutants was significantly different (*p < 0.05), respectively. Error bars show ± SEM.
