We report the preparation and characterization of a novel, fully human antitumor immunoRNase (IR). The IR, a human RNase and fusion protein made up of a human single chain variable fragment (scFv), is directed to the ErbB-2 receptor and overexpressed in many carcinomas. The anti-ErbB-2 IR, named hERB-hRNase, retains the enzymatic activity of the wild-type enzyme (human pancreatic RNase) and specifically binds to ErbB-2-positive cells with the high affinity (K(d) = 4.5 nm) of the parental scFv… CONTINUE READING
