Description: Lipoteichoic acid (LTA) is a major immunostimulatory component of cell wall of Gram-positive Bacteria. These organisms have an inner (or cytoplasmic) membrane and, external to it, a thick peptidoglycan layer. LTA is anchored to the cell membrane via diacylglycerol. Like LPS, LTA is an amphiphile formed by a hydrophilic polyphosphate polymer linked to a neutral glycolipid. LTA stimulates immune cells through TLR2 to produce TNF-α and other inflammatory cytokines. Recognition of LTA involves also LPS-binding protein (LBP) and CD14.
