Recombinant mouse mAb against murine CD3ε for in vivo use

Anti-mCD3-mIgG2a InvivoFit™ is an anti-mCD3 monoclonal antibody featuring the variable region of the previously described 145-2C11 clone [1] and a murinized IgG2a constant region.

CD3 is a multimeric protein complex consisting of four polypeptides (CD3ε, CD3γ, CD3δ, and CD3ζ) that assemble as three dimers (εγ, εδ, and ζζ) [2]. The CD3 complex is a marker of T cells [2]. Upon antigen recognition, the TCR/CD3 complex on T cells triggers downstream intracellular signaling and participates in T cell activation  [3]. 

More details More details

The anti-mCD3ε 145-2C11 mAb is commonly used for cytometry detection and in vivo depletion of the T cell population [1]. Using recombinant technology, the original 145-2C11 Armenian Hamster IgG1 constant region has been replaced with a murine IgG2a format which mediates potent cytotoxic functions [4]. This murinization also allows for reduced immunogenicity of the administered mAb and risks of fatal hypersensitivity reactions [5-7].
Anti-mCD3-mIgG2a is provided in an InvivoFit™ grade, a high-quality standard specifically adapted to in vivo studies.


Key features OF ANTI-MCD3-MIGG2A INVIVOFIT™:

  • Derives from the 145-2C11 clone, Armenian Hamster IgG1
  • Features the mIgG2a isotype (constant region)
  • Filter-sterilized (0.2 µm), endotoxin level < 1 EU/mg
  • Suitable for parental delivery in mice (azide-free)
  • Low aggregation < 5%
  • Produced in animal-free facilities and defined media


Anti-mCD3-mIgG2a InvivoFit™ is produced in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells and purified by affinity chromatography with protein A. The specific binding of this mAb to mCD3 has been confirmed by FACS and ELISA (see Figures).

Validation of Anti-mCD3-mIgG2a InvivoFit™ by ELISA

Binding of Anti-mCD3-mIgG2a InvivoFit™ mAb to coated mouse CD3ε protein.
Mouse CD3ε (10 µg/ml) was coated on ELISA plates overnight. A 3-fold serial dilution of the Anti-mCD3-mIgG2a InvivoFit™ mAb (red curve) or of the Anti-βGal mIgG2a control antibody (grey curve) was performed for the capture step. An HRP-labelled anti-mIgG antibody (1/1000 dilution) and the HRP substrate OPD (o-phenylenediamine dihydrochloride) were used for the detection step. Absorbance was read at 490 nm.

Cell surface staining of murine CD3 using Anti-mCD3-mIgG2a InvivoFit™ mAb.
~5x105 Jurkat (parental) or Jurkat-mCD3 cells were incubated with 2 µg of Anti‑mCD3‑mIgG2a InvivoFit™ mAb or an isotype control for 1h at 4°C. Cells were then washed and incubated with 0.25 µg of goat anti-mIgG2a coupled to PE for 1h at 4°C. Cell surface staining was analyzed by flow cytometry.

Details

CD3 Background:

The cluster of differentiation 3 (CD3, formerly named T3) is a multimeric protein complex consisting of four polypeptides (CD3ε, CD3γ, CD3δ, and CD3ζ) that assemble as three dimers (εγ, εδ, and ζζ) [1]. The CD3 complex is a marker of T cells [1], which recognizes and participates in the elimination of infected cells and tumor cells through the interaction between the TCR on T cells and the MHC-peptide complex on antigen-presenting cells [2]. Because of its short cytoplasmic tail, the TCR lacks the ability to signal and requires non-covalent association with the CD3 [2]. Upon antigen recognition, the TCR/CD3 complex on T cells triggers downstream intracellular signaling and participates in T cell activation  [2]. The CD3ε polypeptide chain (~25 kDa) is targeted by OKT3, a monoclonal antibody that is clinically approved for the induction of immunosuppression in solid organ transplantation [3].
