Sheng Gu et al.
Analytical biochemistry, 400(1), 89-98 (2010-01-21)
Trisulfides are a posttranslational modification formed by the insertion of a sulfur atom into a disulfide bond. Although reports for trisulfides in proteins are limited, we find that they are a common modification in natural and recombinant antibodies of all
Zhongqi Zhang et al.
mAbs, 11(8), 1381-1390 (2019-08-15)
Human IgG antibodies containing terminal alpha 2,6-linked sialic acid on their Fc N-glycans have been shown to reduce antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity and possess anti-inflammatory properties. Although terminal sialylation on complex N-glycans can happen via either an alpha 2,3-linkage or an
Saddam M Muthana et al.
PloS one, 10(3), e0119298-e0119298 (2015-03-26)
Anti-glycan antibodies are an abundant subpopulation of serum antibodies with critical functions in many immune processes. Changes in the levels of these antibodies can occur with the onset of disease, exposure to pathogens, or vaccination. As a result, there has
S Hashira et al.
Pediatrics international : official journal of the Japan Pediatric Society, 42(4), 337-342 (2000-09-15)
Maternal immunoglobulin G (IgG), transferred across the placenta to the fetus during intrauterine life, is an important component of the neonatal immunological defence mechanisms against infection. There is controversy with respect to differences in placental transfer of the different IgG
Rangaiah Shashidharamurthy et al.
Journal of immunology (Baltimore, Md. : 1950), 183(12), 8216-8224 (2009-12-17)
CD32A, the major phagocytic FcgammaR in humans, exhibits a polymorphism in the ligand binding domain. Individuals homozygous for the R allelic form of CD32A (CD32A(R) allele) are more susceptible to bacterial infections and autoimmune diseases as compared with H allelic
Jorn J Heeringa et al.
Allergy, 75(5), 1121-1132 (2019-10-07)
While treatment for atopic rhinitis is aimed mostly to relieve symptoms, only allergen-specific immunotherapy (AIT) is targeted to modify the natural history of allergic diseases. This results in sustained clinical tolerance, even when treatment has stopped. The immunomodulatory effects of
Misty W Stevens et al.
mAbs, 6(2), 547-555 (2014-02-05)
Ch-mAb7F9, a human-mouse chimeric monoclonal antibody (mAb) designed to bind (+)-methamphetamine (METH) with high affinity and specificity, was produced as a treatment medication for METH abuse. In these studies, we present the preclinical characterization that provided predictive evidence that ch-mAb7F9
Masayuki Hirano et al.
Nature immunology, 8(7), 762-771 (2007-06-15)
Because functional analysis of Fc receptors (FcRs) relies heavily on mouse models, the identification of another Fcgamma receptor is particularly noteworthy. We demonstrate that FcgammaRIV, identified here as the mouse ortholog of primate FcgammaRIII, required association of the FcR gamma-chain
Jonatan Dewulf et al.
Cancers, 13(9) (2021-05-06)
The involvement of RANK/RANKL signaling in the tumor microenvironment (TME) in driving response or resistance to immunotherapy has only very recently been recognized. Current quantification methods of RANKL expression suffer from issues such as sensitivity, variability, and uncertainty on the
Yasmina Noubia Abdiche et al.
mAbs, 7(2), 331-343 (2015-02-07)
The neonatal Fc receptor (FcRn) is expressed by cells of epithelial, endothelial and myeloid lineages and performs multiple roles in adaptive immunity. Characterizing the FcRn/IgG interaction is fundamental to designing therapeutic antibodies because IgGs with moderately increased binding affinities for
David R Martinez et al.
Cell, 178(1), 190-201 (2019-06-18)
The placental transfer of maternal IgG is critical for infant protection against infectious pathogens. However, factors that modulate the placental transfer of IgG remain largely undefined. HIV-infected women have impaired placental IgG transfer, presenting a unique "disruption model" to define
