Monoclonal scFv antibody against β-galactosidase and human CD3; Negative control

Anti-βGal-hCD3 is a bispecific antibody that binds to two sites: E. coli β-galactosidase (β-Gal)and hCD3, part of the T cell receptor. It is used as a negative control for Anti-hCD19-CD3 bispecific antibody that, alike Blinatumomab, engages unstimulated T cells to proliferate and exert cytotoxic activity on CD19-positive lymphoma cells [1,2].

A. Evaluation of T cell activation. Raji cells were pre-incubated with Anti-hCD19-CD3, or the two bispecific negative controls Anti-β-Gal-hCD3 and Anti-hCD19-β-Gal for 30 minutes before addition of Jurkat-Lucia™ NFAT cells. After 8 hours incubation, T cell activation was determined by measuring the Lucia luciferase activity using QUANTI-Luc™ detection reagent. Results are presented as relative activity expressed as a percentage of Lucia activity in samples with the highest dose of antibody.
B. Target specificity of Anti-hCD19-CD3 was verified upon incubation with Jurkat-Lucia™ NFAT cells and Raji cells as described in (A), with Jurkat-Lucia™ NFAT cells only, or with Raji cells only. T cell activation was determined by measuring the Lucia luciferase activity using QUANTI-Luc™ and expressed as relative light units (RLUs).

Specifications

Clonality: Monoclonal antibody.

Specificity: E. coli β-galactosidase (β-Gal) and human CD3.

Isotype: none (scFv).

Source: CHO (Chinese hamster ovary) cells.

Purity: >90%. Purified by affinity chromatography.

Quality control:

  •    Binding to hCD3 has been confirmed by flow cytometry.
  •    The inability of Anti-βGal-hCD3 to induce T cell activation has been confirmed using cellular assays.
  •    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.
