2014ZX09201042\003). extremely potent bioactivity and a noncovalently bound apoprotein Radicicol LDP, which forms a hydrophobic pocket to protect the Radicicol chromophore (Guo (Tanaka and genes were employed as selection markers. For construction of anti\CD30\LDP, DNA fragments encoding the VH and LDP\SGGPEGGS\VL protein sequences were, respectively, cloned into the expression vector pIZDHL which carried the gene sequence encoding the human IgG1 constant region, designated as pIZDHL\anti\CD30\LDP. And as the control, and sequences were similarly joined to pIZDHL for the expression of chimeric anti\CD30 antibody, designated as pIZDHL\anti\CD30. For the generation of anti\CD30\LDP and anti\CD30 antibody\expressing cell lines, pIZDHL\anti\CD30\LDP and pIZDHL\anti\CD30 were linearized and transfected into CHO/dhFr\ cells by lipofectin transfection (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA, USA), respectively. Then, the cells were allowed to recover in total medium (IMDM made up of 10% FBS, 0.1?mm hypoxanthine, 0.016?mm thymidine, and 0.002?mm methotrexate hydrate) for 24?h, after which the medium was replaced with selective medium (IMDM containing 10% dialyzed FBS and 200?gmL?1 bleomycin) without hypoxanthine and thymidine. Only those cells incorporated the plasmid DNA, which carried Radicicol the dihydrofolate reductase gene and bleomycin resistance gene, were able to grow in selective medium and screened by ELISA for the expression levels of indicated recombinant protein. The clones generating the highest levels of proteins were selected and cultured subsequently. 2.3. Purification and purity analysis of antibody\based fusion proteins The selected cell lines were processed by amplification culture, and then, the culture medium was changed to CHO serum\free medium (CD OptiCHO? Medium; Gibco, Grand Island, NY, USA) with GlutaMAX? product (Gibco). The cell culture medium was collected after 10?days to purify the proteins of interest. The recombinant proteins anti\CD30\LDP and anti\CD30 antibody were purified by protein G columns (HitrapTM Protein G HP; GE Healthcare, Chicago, IL, USA) according to the manufacturer’s instructions, and the purification of recombinant proteins was performed with the binding buffer at pH 7.4 and the elution buffer at pH 2.5. Then, the concentrations of proteins of interest were assayed by the BCA method (Pierce BCA protein Assay Kit, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Waltham, MA, USA) with the bovine gamma globulin (BGG) standard. The purified proteins were then investigated by nonreducing and reducing SDS/PAGE gels, and the purity values were determined by HPLC. 2.4. Binding activity of the antibody fusion proteins imaging of fluorescein\labeled anti\CD30\LDP tumor\targeting ability of anti\CD30\LDP was investigated using Karpas299 and L540 xenograft tumor models in NOD/SCID mice. Anti\CD30\LDP and the free LDP (provided by our laboratory) were labeled with the DyLight 680 Dyes (Thermo Fisher Scientific) according to the manufacturer’s training and then were injected into the tail vein at a dose of 20?mgkg?1 when the sound tumors reached 200C300?mm3, respectively. The mice were placed in the imaging chamber of the Xenogen IVIS\200 system (Xenogen Inc., Alameda, CA, USA) for distribution observation at a series of time points after anesthetized by isoflurane. The images were also analyzed by the living image LEP software (Caliper Life Science, Hopkinton, MA, USA). 2.8. Preparation of the anti\CD30\LDM The chromophore AE of LDM was separated through a C4 column (150??10?mm; Phenomenex, Torrance, CA, USA) by HPLC. Then, the AE\made up of solution was mixed with the anti\CD30\LDP answer at a 1?:?3 molecular ratio and incubated at 4?C for 12?h by gently shaking to form the enediyne\integrated ADC anti\CD30\LDM. Next, free AE was removed by ultrafiltration centrifugation. The composition of the ADC was finally confirmed by reverse\phase HPLC using a C4 column (250??4.6?mm; Phenomenex). 2.9. cytotoxicity assay The cytotoxicity of the enediyne\integrated anti\CD30\LDM was analyzed by the Cell Counting Kit\8 (CCK\8; Dojindo). Briefly, the different lymphoma cell lines were seeded at 2.5??104 cells in 100?L complete medium Radicicol into 96\well plates and incubated at 37?C with 5% CO2 for 2?h. Then, anti\CD30\LDM and LDM were added in triplicate at different concentrations with 100?L medium, respectively. After 48\h incubation, 20?L CCK\8 reagent was added and incubated for 1?h. The absorbance was measured at 450?nm using a microplate reader. Untreated cells served as control. The relative cell survival (%) was?calculated using the following formula: [(therapeutic efficacy Female NOD/SCID mice were purchased from Beijing Radicicol Vital River Laboratory Animal Technology Co., Ltd. (Beijing, China), and housed under specific.
