Non-fucosylated monoclonal human IgG1 antibody against human CTLA-4

Anti-hCTLA4-hIgG1fut features the constant region of the human IgG1 isotype and the variable region of ipilimumab. Ipilimumab is a fully human IgG1 monoclonal antibody that targets CTLA-4 (also known as CD152), a negative regulator of T cell activation. By binding CTLA-4, ipilimumab inhibits negative signals that physiologically downregulate T cell activation and exerts its therapeutic activity by upregulating the antitumor activity of T lymphocytes [1,2]. In addition, Ipilimumab induces antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) and TNF-α production [3]. Ipilimumab has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of unresectable or metastatic melanoma. Ipilimumab is undergoing clinical trials for other types of cancers, including lung cancer [4].

Anti-hCTLA4-hIgG1fut is a non-fucosylated antibody. The absence of the fucose residue from the N-glycans of IgG-Fc results in dramatic enhancement of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) without any detectable change in complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC) or antigen binding capability [5,6].

Anti-hCTLA4-hIgG1fut was generated by recombinant DNA technology. It has been produced in CHO cells that are deficient for fucosylation and purified by affinity chromatography with protein G.
