  • Bispecific miniantibodies were constructed by genetically fusing the CH1 domain of an IgG1 to the C‐terminus of a single‐chain Fv fragment (scFv‐425), specific for the EGF receptor, and fusing the CL domain of a kappa light chain to the C‐terminus of a scFv specific for CD2 (scFv‐M1). An efficient dicistronic gene arrangement for functional expression in Escherichia coli was constructed. Immunoblots demonstrated correct domain assembly and the formation of the natural CH1‐CL disulfide bridge… CONTINUE READING
