Anti-hPD-L1-hIgG1 (N298A) is the biosimilar of the clinical antibody atezolizumab. Anti-hPD-L1-hIgG1 (N298A)  is a recombinant monoclonal antibody (mAb) featuring a variable region of atezolizumab, targeting human (h)PD-L1, and a constant region of the engineered hIgG1 (N298A) isotype. This isotype is designed to limit antibody-dependent cytotoxicity (ADCC) and complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC), by eliminating the ability of the mAb to bind to human Fcγ receptors. Anti-hPD-L1-hIgG1 (N298A) was generated by recombinant DNA technology, has been produced in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, and purified by affinity chromatography with protein G.


PD-L1 background

Programmed cell death ligand 1 (PD-L1), also known as cluster of differentiation 274 (CD274) or B7 homolog 1 (B7-H1) is a transmembrane protein that can be constitutively expressed or induced in myeloid, lymphoid, and normal epithelial cells, as well as in cancer [1, 2]. PD-L1 is the principal ligand for programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) and under physiological conditions, this interaction is essential in the development of immune tolerance preventing excessive immune cell activity. However, PD-L1 expression is an immune evasion mechanism exploited by various malignancies and is generally associated with poorer prognosis [3]. Specifically, over-expressed PD-L1 on tumor cells and tumor-infiltrating immune cells, such as macrophages, can bind to PD-1 on cytotoxic T cells, and ultimately inhibit the anti-tumor T cell response [2, 4]. Thus, due to PD-L1’s instrumental role in immune evasion by cancer cells, there are numerous inhibitors in development as promising immuno-oncology therapies. Notably, Atezolizumab (also known as MPDL3280A), a fully humanized IgG1 (N298A) mAb that blocks the interaction of PD-L1 with PD-1 and induces anti-tumor immune reactivation, has been approved by the FDA for combinational use in the treatment of lung and breast cancer [2, 5].


Key features of Anti-hPD-L1-hIgG1 (N298A):

  • Clinically relevant variable region targeting PD-L1
  • Features the engineered hIgG1 (N298A) constant region for limited effector function
  • Functionally validated by flow cytometry

The terms “Atezolizumab” and “MPDL3280A” are only used as references. Anti-hPD-L1-hIgG1 (N298A) is not a pharmaceutical biosimilar of Atezolizumab. It has not been developed nor approved by Atezolizumab owner(s), and is not intended for any therapeutic or diagnostic use in humans or animals.

Comparison of ADCC potency for native and engineered anti-human PD-L1 antibody isotypes
Comparison of ADCC potency for native and engineered anti-human PD-L1 antibody isotypes

Comparison of ADCC potency for native and engineered anti-human PD-L1 antibody isotypes. Raji-hPD-L1 cells were incubated with gradient concentrations of Anti-hPD-L1 or Anti-β-galactosidase (β-gal) mAbs for 1 hour. Jurkat-Lucia™ NFAT-CD16 effector cells were then co-incubated with target cells for 6 hours. NFAT activation, reflecting the induced ADCC response, was assessed by determining Lucia luciferase activity in the supernatant using QUANTI-Luc™. Percentages of the maximal response normalized to the IgG1 isotype are shown.
