Summary of "Immune repertoire mining for rapid affinity optimization of mouse monoclonal antibodies."

Traditional hybridoma and B cell cloning antibody discovery platforms have inherent limits in immune repertoire sampling depth. One consequence is that monoclonal antibody (mAb) leads often lack the necessary affinity for therapeutic applications, thus requiring labor-intensive and time-consuming affinity in vitro engineering optimization steps. Here, we show that high-affinity variants of mouse-derived mAbs can be rapidly obtained by testing of somatic sequence variants obtained by deep sequencing of antibody variable regions in immune repertories from immunized mice, even with a relatively sparse sampling of sequence variants from large sequence datasets. Affinity improvements can be achieved for mAbs with a wide range of affinities. The optimized antibody variants derived from immune repertoire mining have no detectable in vitro off-target binding and have in vivo clearance comparable to the parental mAbs, essential properties in therapeutic antibody leads. As generation of antibody variants in vitro is replaced by mining of variants generated in vivo, the procedure can be applied to rapidly identify affinity-optimized mAb variants.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Semisynthetic conjugates of various toxic molecules, including RADIOACTIVE ISOTOPES and bacterial or plant toxins, with specific immune substances such as IMMUNOGLOBULINS; MONOCLONAL ANTIBODIES; and ANTIGENS. The antitumor or antiviral immune substance carries the toxin to the tumor or infected cell where the toxin exerts its poisonous effect.

Conditions characterized by the presence of M protein (Monoclonal protein) in serum or urine without clinical manifestations of plasma cell dyscrasia.

Anti-CD3 monoclonal antibody that exerts immunosuppressive effects by inducing peripheral T-cell depletion and modulation of the T-cell receptor complex (CD3/Ti). This biochemically purified IMMUNOGLOBULIN G is obtained through the fusion of mouse myeloma cells to lymphocytes from immunized animals to produce hybridomas that secrete specific antibodies to the T3 (CD3) antigens of human T-lymphocytes. It is often used as an IMMUNOSUPPRESSIVE AGENTS in TRANSPLANTATION.

An anti-IgE, recombinant, humanized monoclonal antibody which specifically binds to the C epsilon3 domain of IMMUNOGLOBULIN E, the site of high-affinity IgE receptor binding. It inhibits the binding of IgE to MAST CELLS and BASOPHILS to reduce the severity of the allergic response and is used in the management of persistent allergic ASTHMA.

A genus of the subfamily SIGMODONTINAE consisting of 49 species. Two of these are widely used in medical research. They are P. leucopus, or the white-footed mouse, and P. maniculatus, or the deer mouse.
