Non-glycosylated monoclonal human IgG1 antibody against human CD20

Anti-hCD20-hIgG1NQ features the variable region of rituximab and a mutated constant region of the human IgG1 isotype.
Rituximab is a mouse/human chimeric monoclonal antibody that targets the CD20 antigen found on the surface of malignant and normal B lymphocytes. Binding of rituximab to CD20 results in cell destruction through different mechanisms including direct signaling of apoptosis, complement activation and cell-mediated cytotoxicity. Rituximab has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of various lymphoid malignancies, including B-cell non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and B-cell chronic lymphocytic leukemia.

Anti-hCD20-hIgG1NQ contains a N-glycosylation mutation of the constant region of the human IgG1 where potential asparagine (N) glycosylation sites are substituted by glutamine (Q) residues resulting in the production of a non-glycosylated antibody. Glycosylation of an antibody has no effect on antigen binding but is essential for Fc receptor-mediated activity [1].
In non-glycosylated antibodies the effector mechanisms mediated through the Fc receptors types (FcgRI, FcgRII, FcgRIII) and the C1q component of complement are severely compromised or ablated [2].
Anti-hCD20-hIgG1NQ was generated by recombinant DNA technology. It has been produced in CHO cells and purified by affinity chromatography with protein G.
