Bispecific antibody against β-galactosidase and human CD3; Negative control
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].

Anti-βGal-hCD3 binds to hCD3 on T cells but not to hCD19 on B cells.
Anti-βgal-hCD3 does not allow Jurkat-Lucia™ NFAT cell activation upon incubation with Raji B cells.
(A) 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).
