Fusion of the antiferritin antibody VL domain to barnase results in enhanced solubility and altered pH stability.

Chimeric immunotoxins that combine antigen recognition domains of antibodies and cytotoxic RNases have attracted much attention in recent years as potential targeted agents for cancer immunotherapy. In an attempt to obtain a structurally minimized immunofusion for folding/stability studies, we constructed the chimeric protein VL-barnase. The chimera… CONTINUE READING
