Monoclonal human IgG1 antibody against β-galactosidase for antibody-drug conjugation

InvivoGen provides Anti-β-Gal-hIgG1*, a monoclonal antibody (mAb) specifically developed for the generation of control antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs). This mAb features:

  • the variable region of a murine mAb which specifically targets the E. coli β-galactosidase (β-Gal),
  • a human IgG1 constant region that displays high effector functions, including antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC), and complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC).

InvivoGen's Anti-β-Gal-hIgG1* has been generated by recombinant DNA technology, produced in CHO cells, and purified by affinity chromatography.


Key features of Anti-β-Gal-hIgG1*:

  • No binding to any other antigen than β-Gal, as verified by ELISA, flow cytometry, and ADC-based cellular assays
  • Human IgG1 constant region for high effector functions
  • The absence of bacterial contamination has been confirmed


Application for Anti-β-Gal-hIgG1*:

  • Negative control for ADC-based assays

InvivoGen offers Anti-HER2-IgG1 and Anti-TROP2-hIgG1 specific mAbs, as well as conjugatable PRR ligands for building immunostimulatory ADCs.
You may choose from TLR7 and STING agonists:
Conjugatable TLR7 agonists: TL7-887 and TL7-975
Conjugatable STING agonists: STG-982 and STG-968

Validation of Anti-β-Gal-hIgG1* by ELISA
Validation of Anti-β-Gal-hIgG1* by ELISA

Anti-β-hIgG1* mAb binding to plate-bound β-galactosidase. β-galactosidase protein (2 μg/ml) was coated on ELISA plates overnight. A 3-fold serial dilution of Anti-β-Gal-hIgG1* (red curve) or of Anti-hCD20-hIgG1 control mAb (grey curve) was realized for the capture step. An HRP-labelled anti-human IgG1 (1/1000 dilution) and the HRP substrate OPD (o-phenylenediamine dihydrochloride) were used for the detection step. Absorbance was read at 490 nm.

Validation of Anti-β-Gal-hIgG1* by FACS
Validation of Anti-β-Gal-hIgG1* by FACS

Absence of Anti-β-hIgG1* mAb binding to EL4-hCD20 cells. ~5 x 105 EL4 cells stably expressing cell surface human CD20 antigen were incubated with 2 µg of Anti-β-Gal-hIgG1* mAb or Anti-hCD20-hIgG1 control mAb for 45 min at 4°C. Cells were then washed and incubated with 250 ng of goat anti-human κ light chain antibody coupled to PE for 1h at 4°C. Cell surface staining was analyzed by flow cytometry.

STING-ADC-mediated cell responses
STING-ADC-mediated cell responses

Dose-response of human PBMCs co-cultured with BxPC-3 tumor cells and Anti-TROP2/STG-982 or Anti-β-Gal/STG-982 ADC. 1.5x105 human PBMCs and 5x104 BxPC-3 TROP2+ tumor cells (A) or 1.5x105 human PBMCs only (B) were incubated with increasing concentrations of Anti-TROP2/STG-982 ADC (DAR ~4), Anti-β-Gal/STG-982 ADC (DAR ~4), or STG-982 only. After overnight incubation, the STING-mediated response was assessed by measuring the production of CXCL10 in PBMC and BxPC-3 co-culture supernatants, using an ELISA. The optical density (OD) at 450 nm is shown.
