Muramyl dipeptide (MDP) is an essential structural component of bacterial peptidoglycan (PGN) and the minimal elicitor recognized by NOD2. As MDP is present in nearly all bacteria NOD2 is a general sensor of bacteria. NOD2 has additionally been reported to respond to ssRNA (Sabbah et al. 2009) and play a role in T cell activation (Shaw et al. 2011).
