Non-fucosylated human IgG1 monoclonal antibody (mAb) against human CD20

Effector functions of mAb isotypes targeting CD20

Anti-hCD20-Ga-hIgG1fut is the biosimilar of the clinical antibody obinutuzumab. Anti-hCD20-Ga-hIgG1fut features the constant region (Fc) of a non-fucosylated (fut), human IgG1 isotype and the variable region of obinutuzumab. Obinutuzumab (formerly named afutuzumab or GA101) targets the human CD20 antigen found on the surface of normal and malignant B lymphocytes.

Obinutuzumab is a type II (second generation) non-fucosylated, fully humanized IgG1 monoclonal antibody 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 to treat chronic lymphocytic leukemia [1-3].

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 [4].

 

InvivoGen’s Anti-hCD20-Ga-hIgG1fut is generated by recombinant DNA technology, produced in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells 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 or in the 'upon request' section).
InvivoGen also provides type I anti-hCD20 mAbs featuring the variable regions of Rituximab or Ofatumumab, with either native or engineered Fc region.

Binding of Anti-hCD20-Ga-hIgG1fut mAb to hCD20. EL4-hCD20 cells were incubated for 30 minutes at 4°C with 125 ng of Anti-hCD20-Ga-hIgG1fut or an isotype control. Subsequently, a secondary PE-labeled antibody was added and incubated at 4°C for 30 minutes. The binding affinity was assessed using flow cytometry.
