TA99-derived mouse monoclonal antibody against gp75/TYRP1
Recombinant mouse mAb against gp75 tumor-associated antigen for in vivo use
Anti-mgp75-mIgG2a InvivoFit™ is a recombinant mouse IgG2a monoclonal antibody (mAb) based on the previously described TA99 mAb that reacts against both human and mouse gp75 antigens . The TA99 mAb has a sequence that is 100% murine (constant and variable regions), thus ensuring minimal immunogenicity upon repeated injections into mice. This mAb efficiently induces protective immunity against B16F10 melanoma, either subcutaneous or metastatic . Of note, the mIgG2a isotype was shown to be the most potent at inducing antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity compared to mIgG1, mIgG2b, and mIgG3 . As opposed to the original hybridoma-based production which contains a mixed population of anti-gp75 antibodies featuring correct or aberrant light chains , InvivoGen produces the recombinant anti-mgp75-mIgG2a mAb using Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells.
Anti-mgp75-mIgG2a is purely monoclonal and is provided in an InvivoFit™ grade, a high-quality standard specifically adapted to in vivo studies.
Key features of Anti-mgp75-mIgG2a InvivoFit™:
- Sequence is 100% murine
- Free from non-relevant mAbs found in hybridoma-based productions
- Filter-sterilized (0.2 µm), endotoxin level < 1 EU/mg
- Suitable for parenteral delivery in mice (azide-free)
- Low aggregation < 5%
- Produced in animal-free facilities and defined media
Anti-mgp75-mIgG2a InvivoFit™ is purified by affinity chromatography with protein A. Its binding to mouse gp-75 is validated using ELISA.

ELISA binding of Anti-mgp75-mIgG2a InvivoFit™ to recombinant murine gp75 protein.
A dilution series of Anti-mgp75-mIgG2a InvivoFit™ and anti-mgp75 (clone TA99) was used for the detection of coated mgp75 (mTYRP1) antigen at 2 µg/ml. Detection of bound antibody was performed using an HRP-conjugated anti-murine IgG2a chain secondary antibody. HRP activity was assessed by a colorimetric assay using Tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) substrate. Optical density was measured at 490 nm. Data are shown as percentage absorbance.

Glycoprotein 75 (gp75) is a tumor-associated antigen specifically located within the membrane of melanosomes; the organelles producing melanin in melanocytes. This 75-kDa polypeptide is the mature form of tyrosinase-related protein 1 (TYRP1; also known as MEL-5).
This enzyme is the most abundant glycoprotein synthesized by pigmented melanocytes and melanomas. It is involved in melanin synthesis as well as the proliferation and cell death of melanocytes. Importantly, gp75 is a target of choice for antibody-based immunotherapy against primary and metastatic melanoma.
