SILu™Mab is a recombinant, stable isotope-labeled, human monoclonal antibody which incorporates [13C6, 15N4]-Arginine and [13C6, 15N2]-Lysine. Expressed in CHO cells, SILuMab is designed to be used as a universal internal standard for bioanalysis of monoclonal antibodies. Because of overlap with common sequences in the Fc region with candidate antibodies, SILuMab provides universal utility and thus eliminates the need to produce candidate-specific internal standards. SILuMab is an IgG1 antibody with lambda light chain, but contains peptide sequences common to other IgG isotypes.
SILu™MAB Stable-Isotope Labeled Universal Monoclonal Antibody Standard human has been used in a comparative study of automated antibody de novo sequencing.

SILuMab has been validated as an internal standard for quantitation of relevant biotherapeutics in a complex biological matrix by MRM-based LC-MS/MS.
- SILuMab yielded reproducible, linear curves from 0.1 μg/mL to 1000 μg/mL without enrichment or depletion.
- Good agreement was observed between multiple peptides derived from the same target.
- Label incorporation was determined to be >98% by mass spectrometry.
- Sequence coverage was confirmed by peptide mapping.
Supplied as a lyophilized powder containing phosphate buffered saline
Produced utilizing enriched media containing stable isotope labeled amino acids are 13C6, 15N4-labeled arginine and 13C6, 15N2-labeled lysine
SILuMab design is optimized to be used as an internal standard for quantitation of monoclonal antibodies as well as Fc-fusion therapeutics. Because of overlap with the common sequences in the Fc region with candidate antibodies, SILuMab provides universal utility, thus eliminating the need for production of candidate-specific internal standards.
SILuMab recovery is maximized when 0.1% formic acid is used for reconstitution of the lyophilized product. Reconstitution with other solvents may reduce recovery. Do not freeze after reconstitution.
- Briefly centrifuge the vial at ~10,000 x g to collect the product at the bottom of the vial.
- Add 500 μL of purified water containing 0.1% formic acid to the vial.
- Mix the contents by gently inverting the vial a minimum of 5 times.
- Allow the vial to stand at room temperature for a minimum of 15 minutes and repeat mixing by inversion.
