Proprotein convertase substilisin/kexin type 9 (PCSK9) promotes the degradation of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) receptor (LDLR) and thereby increases serum LDL-cholesterol (LDL-C). We have developed a humanized monoclonal antibody that recognizes the LDLR binding domain of PCSK9. This antibody, J16, and its precursor mouse antibody, J10, potently inhibit(More)
Neurotensin (NT) is a neuropeptide implicated in the pathophysiology of schizophrenia and in mediating the efficacy of antipsychotic drugs. NT is also involved in the regulation of body temperature and pain sensitivity. Using neurotensin receptor 1 (NTR1) knockout (KO) and wild-type (WT) mice, these studies evaluated the involvement of NTR1 in the(More)
The efficacy of an antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) is dependent on the properties of its linker-payload which must remain stable while in systemic circulation but undergo efficient processing upon internalization into target cells. Here, we examine the stability of a non-cleavable Amino-PEG6-based linker bearing the monomethyl auristatin D (MMAD) payload(More)
