Cell panel screening

The Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are a family of evolutionarily ancient Patten Recognition Receptors (PRRs) that rapidly detect microbial infection and stimulate the production of pro-inflammatory and antiviral cytokines and chemokines, as well as initiating significant metabolic shifts within the cell. Acting as cellular sentinels for infectious threats, signalling downstream of TLRs sets the stage for successful development of adaptive immunity 1.

Cell panel screening assays are an essential part of the drug discovery toolbox. However, fully resolving the drug response profiles of slow-acting therapeutics remains challenging with conventional short term assay formats. Elucidation of the effects of these drug candidates, and those that target epigenetic pathways, requires much greater optimization of longer-term assay conditions.
