Human CD20 (Obinutuzumab) antibody, non-fucosylated - Human IgG1
Non-fucosylated monoclonal human IgG1 antibody against human CD20
Anti-hCD20-Ga-hIgG1fut is a non-fucosylated antibody featuring a human IgG1 constant region (Fc) and the variable region of Obinutuzumab (formerly named Afutuzumab or GA101) which targets the human CD20 antigen found on the surface of normal and malignant B lymphocytes.
The absence of fucose residues from the Fc N-glycans results in dramatic enhancement of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) without any detectable change in complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC) or antigen binding capability .
Obinutuzumab, is a type II (second generation) non-fucosylated, fully humanized IgG1 monoclonal antibody (mAb) with improved therapeutic efficacy compared with previously developed type I (first generation) anti-hCD20 mAbs, such as Rituximab and Ofatumumab. Obinutuzumab has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) [2-4].
InvivoGen’s Anti-hCD20-Ga-hIgG1fut is generated by recombinant DNA technology, produced in CHO cells that are deficient for fucosylation, and purified by affinity chromatography (protein G).
More isotypes of this antibody are available and can be used for comparison of biological activities such as ADCC (see below).
InvivoGen also provides type I anti-hCD20 mAbs featuring the variable regions of Rituximab or Ofatumumab, with either native or engineered Fc region.
