Non-glycosylated monoclonal human IgG1 antibody against human PD-1

Anti-hPD1-Ni-hIgG1NQ features a mutated constant region of the human IgG1 isotype and the variable region of nivolumab. Nivolumab is a fully human IgG4 (S228P) monoclonal antibody that contains an engineered hinge region mutation (S228P) designed to prevent exchange of IgG4 molecules. It targets the PD-1 receptor found on activated T cells, B cells, and myeloid cells. PD-1 negatively regulates T cell activation thereby preventing autoimmunity [1]. However, under pathological conditions, cancer cells produce PD-L1 (programmed cell death 1 ligand 1), the agonist that binds and activates PD-1 enabling the cancer cells to evade the immune system. Nivolumab binds and blocks the activation of the PD-1 receptor, thereby resulting in the activation of T cells and cell‑mediated immune responses [2,3]. It has been approved by the FDA for the treatment of melanoma and squamous non-small cell lung cancer.

Anti-hPD1-Ni-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 [4]. In non‑glycosylated antibodies the effector mechanisms mediated through the Fc receptors types (FcγRI, FcγRII, FcγRIII) and the C1q component of complement are severely compromised or ablated [5]. It has been produced in CHO cells and purified by affinity chromatography with protein G.

Applications:  Anti-hPD1-Ni-hIgG1NQ can be used with Anti-hPD1-Ni-hIgG1 to study the impact of effector functions.
