Currently, the most widely used chemical methodology for the conjugation of drugs to monoclonal antibodies involves either lysine or cysteine residues. In this chapter, several methods for the preparation of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) through conjugation of drugs to solvent-exposed ε-amino groups of lysine residues are described. These methods apply to various cytotoxic agents, both tubulin binders and DNA-targeting agents and different types of linkers, cleavable or not, peptidic or… CONTINUE READING
