A PEGylation technology of L-asparaginase with monomethoxy polyethylene glycol-propionaldehyde.


PMID 22888537

Abstract

Polyethylene glycol (PEG) conjugation technology has been successfully applied to improve the performance of protein drugs. In this study, L-asparaginase was N-terminal site-specifically modified by alkylating PEG with monomethoxy polyethylene glycol-propionaldehyde (mPEG-ALD20000). The optimum reaction parameters were determined as pH 5.0, a molar ratio of mPEG-ALD2000 to L-asparaginase of 10:1, a reaction time of 16 h and temperature of 25 degrees C. PEG-L-asparaginase (PEG-L-ASNase) was isolated and purified with consecutive anion-exchange (XK, 16 x 20 cm, Q Sepharose FF) and gel-filtration (Tricorn, 10 x 600 cm, Sephacryl S-300 HR) chromatography, respectively. PEG-L-ASNase retained 43.5% of its activity and the N-terminal amino groups were modified to an extent of 3.67%.
