Bispecific antibody against human CD19 and human CD3
Monoclonal scFv antibody against human CD19 and human CD3
Anti-hCD19-CD3 is a bispecific antibody that recognizes two human cell markers: hCD19, which is expressed on the surface of B cells, and hCD3 which is part of the T cell receptor. This antibody features Blinatumomab single-chain variable fragments (scFv) joined by a glycine-serine linker. These two scFvs have been cloned from the anti-hCD19 (clone HD37) and anti-hCD3 (clone L2K-07) monoclonal antibodies [1,2]. Blinatumomab is used for the treatment of refractory acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) in clinics. By binding to hCD3 and hCD19, Blinatumomab engages unstimulated T cells to proliferate and exert cytotoxic activity on CD19-positive lymphoma cells . Blinatumomab does not cross‑react with CD3 and CD19 from mice, rats, or dogs .
Anti-hCD19-CD3 bispecific antibody can be used for fine-tuning studies of B cell contact-dependent killing and T cell activation/proliferation.

Anti-hCD19-CD3 binds to hCD3 on T cells and to hCD19 on B cells leading to T cell proliferation and B cell lysis.
Jurkat-Lucia™ NFAT cell activation upon incubation with Raji B cells and Anti-hCD19-CD3.
(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).
