Neutralizing human IgA2 monoclonal antibody against human TNF-α

Anti-hTNF-α-hIgA2 is a neutralizing monoclonal antibody (mAb) featuring the constant region of the human IgA2 (hIgA2) isotype and the variable region of adalimumab, a fully human therapeutic mAb that targets human tumor necrosis factor-alpha (hTNF-α). TNF-α is a pleiotropic cytokine that notably induces NF-κB-mediated production of pro-inflammatory cytokines [1,2]. The variable region of adalimumab blocks the interaction of TNF-α with its receptors TFNR1 and TNFR2, thereby downregulating the inflammatory responses associated with autoimmune diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis and Crohn’s disease [1,2]. The hIgA2 isotype is highly resistant to enzymatic degradation by bacterial proteases, due to a short hinge region. Human IgA2 displays low potency for Fc-mediated antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) and antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis (ADCP), and it does not mediate complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC). 

Anti-hTNF-α-hIgA2 was generated by recombinant DNA technology. It is produced in CHO cells and purified by affinity chromatography with peptide M. The neutralizing activity of anti-hTNF-α-hIgA2 antibody was determined using HEK-Blue™ TNF-α cells.
