Nowadays, recombinant proteins are used with great success for the treatment of a variety of medical conditions, such as cancer, autoimmune, and infectious diseases. Several expression systems have been developed to produce human proteins, but one of their most critical limitations is the addition of truncated or nonhuman glycans to the recombinant(More)
We have designed and validated a novel generic platform for production of tetravalent IgG1-like chimeric bispecific Abs. The VH-CH1-hinge domains of mAb2 are fused through a peptidic linker to the N terminus of mAb1 H chain, and paired mutations at the CH1-CL interface mAb1 are introduced that force the correct pairing of the two different free L chains.(More)
The core alpha1,6-fucosyltransferase (FUT8) catalyzes the transfer of a fucosyl moiety from GDP-fucose to the innermost asparagine-linked N-acetylglucosamine residue of glycoproteins. In mammals, this glycosylation has an important function in many fundamental biological processes and although no essential role has been demonstrated yet in all animals, FUT8(More)
The construction of a recombinant antibody directed against the cellular epitope R7V acquired by HIV during the viral budding has been realized. The c-DNAs encoding the variable regions of the anti-R7V antibody have been cloned from B lymphocytes of a non-progressor patient. Two transfer vectors containing complete coding sequences for heavy and light(More)
