Monoclonal dog IgG2 antibody against dog CD20

Anti-dCD20c1-dIgG2 is a chimeric monoclonal antibody specific for dog CD20 (dCD20). TIn flow cytometry applications, this antibody has exhibited weak cross-reactivity with human CD20. Reactivity with other species has not been tested.

It has been produced in CHO cells and purified by affinity chromatography with protein A.

Anti-dCD20c1-dIgG2 was generated by combining the constant domains of the dog IgG2 molecule with the variable regions of Anti-dCD20c1-mIgG2a.

Anti-dCD20c1-mIgG2a has been selected for its ability to bind dCD20 and induce complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC).

CD20 is a transmembrane phosphoprotein that is expressed on the surface of malignant and normal B lymphocytes.

As CD20 expression is restricted to B cells, this antigen is a useful marker or target for B-cell lymphomas [1].
Studies demonstrate that the expression of CD20 correlates with B-cell lymphoma in dogs [2]. In human medicine, an anti-human CD20 monoclonal antibody (Rituximab) has been approved by the FDA to treat B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma resistant to other chemotherapy regimens.

Binding of rituximab to CD20 results in cell destruction through different mechanisms including direct signaling of apoptosis, complement activation and cell-mediated cytotoxicity. Rituximab was tested for B-cell binding and depletion in canine B-cells ex vivo; however, this human therapeutic is not able to bind or deplete canine B-cells [3, 4]. Thus, there is a need for specific antibodies directed against dog CD20.

Such antibodies can be used to investigate CD20 as a therapeutic target in canine lymphoma.
