Sortase A from Staphylococcus aureus attracts growing interest for its use in biotechnological protein modification. This enzyme binds to a short signal sequence at the C terminus of a target protein, cleaves it by formation of an acyl-enzyme intermediate, and subsequently attaches an oligoglycine with a peptide bond. In this work, we explored its usability(More)
BACKGROUND A promising new approach in cancer therapy is the use of tumor specific antibodies coupled to cytotoxic agents. Currently these immunoconjugates are prepared by rather unspecific coupling chemistries, resulting in heterogeneous products. As the drug load is a key parameter for the antitumor activity, site-specific strategies are desired.(More)
This study was performed to determine whether, in the dog, there is at any time pulsatile release of alpha-MSH and whether secretion of ACTH from the pars intermedia (PI) contributes to the circulating concentrations of ACTH. The 24-h secretory profiles of alpha-MSH, ACTH, and cortisol were determined in eight dogs. Plasma samples were obtained at 10-min(More)
The fibroblast growth factor receptor FGFR2 is overexpressed in a variety of solid tumors, including breast, gastric, and ovarian tumors, where it offers a potential therapeutic target. In this study, we present evidence of the preclinical efficacy of BAY 1187982, a novel antibody-drug conjugate (ADC). It consists of a fully human FGFR2 monoclonal antibody(More)
Authentic biomarkers, distilling the essence of a complex, functionally significant process in a mammalian system into a precise, physicochemical measurement have been implicated as a tool of increasing importance for drug discovery and development. However, even in spite of recent technological advances, validating a new biomarker candidate, where(More)
Herein, we describe an extension of our previously reported photomediated disulfide rebridging methodology to the conjugation of peptides and proteins. The methodology proved to be reproducible with various alkynes and different peptides. This study includes the first rebridging of the disulfide bond of a peptide through a thiol-yne reaction with a(More)
