Anti-hPD-L1-hIgG2 features the constant region of the human IgG2 isotype and the variable region of atezolizumab. Atezolizumab (also known as MPDL3280A) is a fully humanized IgG1 (N298A) monoclonal antibody that targets the programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1), a transmembrane protein over-expressed on tumor cells and tumor infiltrating immune cells, such as macrophages. PD-L1 binds to programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) on cytotoxic T cells, inhibiting the anti-tumor immune response [1]. Atezolizumab blocks the interaction of PD-L1 with PD-1 and induces anti-tumor immune reactivation. Atezolizumab contains a modified Fc region designed to limit antibody-dependent cytotoxicity (ADCC) and complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC) [2, 3]. The mutation N298A eliminates its ability to bind to human Fcγ receptors. FDA has granted atezolizumab priority review for advanced bladder cancer.

Anti-hPD-L1-hIgG2 was generated by recombinant DNA technology. It has been produced in CHO cells and purified by affinity chromatography with protein G.


Specificity: Targets cells expressing human and mouse PD-L1
Clonality: Monoclonal antibody
Isotype: Human IgG2
Source: CHO cells
Purity: Purified by affinity chromatography with protein G

Quality control:
- Binding of Anti-hPD-L1-hIgG2 to hPD-L1 has been validated using flow cytometry in EL4 cells expressing membrane-bound human PD-L1.
- ADCC has been tested using CD16-expressing Jurkat-NFAT reporter cells.
- The complete sequence of this antibody has been verified.
- The absence of bacterial contamination (e.g. lipoproteins and endotoxins) has been confirmed using HEK-Blue™ TLR2 and HEK-Blue™ TLR4 cells.
