New coupling agents for the synthesis of immunotoxins containing a hindered disulfide bond with improved stability in vivo.
Two new coupling agents were synthesized for making immunotoxins containing disulfide bonds with improved stability in vivo: sodium S-4-succinimidyloxycarbonyl-alpha-methyl benzyl thiosulfate (SMBT)Expand
Biochemical, cytotoxic and pharmacokinetic properties of an immunotoxin composed of a mouse monoclonal antibody Fib75 and the ribosome-inactivating protein alpha-sarcin from Aspergillus giganteus.
An immunotoxin was synthesized by the attachment of alpha-sarcin, the ribosome-inactivating protein derived from the mould Aspergillus giganteus, to a monoclonal mouse IgG2 antibody Fib75. TheExpand
Antibody toxin conjugates: a perspective.
Comparative stabilities in vitro and in vivo of a recombinant mouse antibody FvCys fragment and a bisFvCys conjugate.
A murine antibody FvCys fragment with a single additional cysteine residue at the C terminus of the VH domain was expressed in Escherichia coli from a modified expression plasmid containing theExpand
Selective cytotoxic effects of a ricin A chain immunotoxin made with the monoclonal antibody SWA11 recognising a human small cell lung cancer antigen.
The potential of mouse monoclonal antibodies for recognising different antigens associated with human small cell lung cancer (SCLC) to form active immunotoxins was assessed by an indirect in vitroExpand
Blood clearance in the rat of a recombinant mouse monoclonal antibody lacking the N-linked oligosaccharide side chains of the CH2 domains.
The serum half-lives of a wild-type recombinant mouse monoclonal antibody of the IgG2b isotype and a mutant antibody differing from the wild-type antibody by a single amino acid substitutionExpand
An anti‐mucin immunotoxin BrE‐3‐ricin A‐chain is potently and selectively toxic to human small‐cell lung cancer
Monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) known to recognize epithelial mucin or defined carbohydrate structures present on mucin molecules were screened for their ability to form cytotoxic agents with ricinExpand
Antibodies to the protein core of the small cell lung cancer workshop antigen cluster‐w4 and to the leucocyte workshop antigen CD24 recognize the same short protein sequence leucine‐alanine‐proline
We recently described the identity of the small cell lung cancer (SCLC) cluster‐w4 antigen and the human B cell differentiation marker CD24, a glycosylphosphatidylinositol (GPI)‐anchored, highlyExpand
Molecular and biological properties of an abrin A chain immunotoxin designed for therapy of human small cell lung cancer.
An immunotoxin (IT) comprising abrin A chain attached to the mouse monoclonal antibody SWA11, recognising a cell surface antigen highly associated with human small cell lung cancer (SCLC), wasExpand
Circular dichroism of isolated ricin A- and B-chains.
An analysis of the circular dichroism (CD) spectra of isolated ricin A- and B-chains revealed several bands not apparent in the spectrum of intact ricin. Arithmetic combination of the A- and B-chainExpand
