ADCC Reporter Bioassay, Core Kits

Antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) is a mechanism of action (MOA) of antibodies through which virus-infected or other diseased cells are targeted for destruction by components of the cell-mediated immune system. The ADCC Reporter Bioassay is a bioluminescent assay for quantifying Fc effector function of therapeutic antibodies as measured by activation of NFAT signaling pathway (Figure 1). The assay includes effector cells provided in frozen, thaw-and-use format and reagents and an optimized protocol to provide a bioassay that has low variability and high accuracy. Moreover the bioassay can ...

Storage Conditions

Note: The ADCC Reporter Bioassay components are shipped separately because of temperature requirements. The ADCC Bioassay Effector Cells are shipped on dry ice. The Bio-Glo™ Luciferase Assay System and Low IgG Serum are shipped on dry ice, separately from the cells. The RPMI 1640 Medium is shipped at ambient temperature.

Upon arrival, immediately transfer the vials of ADCC Bioassay Effector Cells for long-term storage below –140°C (freezer or liquid nitrogen vapor phase). The cells are sensitive, and care should be taken when handling. For safety reasons do not store cell vials submerged in liquid nitrogen. Low IgG Serum should be stored at –20°C. Avoid multiple freeze-thaw cycles. Bio-Glo™ Luciferase Assay Buffer and Bio-Glo™ Luciferase Assay Substrate should be stored at –20°C. For optimal performance, reconstituted Bio-Glo™ Luciferase Assay Reagent should be used the day of preparation. However, once reconstituted, Bio-Glo™ Luciferase Assay Reagent can be stored at –20°C for up to 6 weeks. RPMI 1640 Medium should be stored at 4°C protected from fluorescent light.

Serial dilutions of rituximab (anti-CD20 chimeric monoclonal antibody drug), trastuzumab (anti-Her2 humanized monoclonal antibody drug) or assay medium control (no antibody) were incubated for 6 hours of induction at 37°C with engineered Jurkat effector cells (ADCC Bioassay Effector Cells) with or without ADCC Bioassay Target Cells (WIL2-S), as indicated. Luciferase activity was quantified using Bio-Glo™ Reagent. Data were fitted using 4PL curve fitting of GraphPad Prism® software.

11167LAFigure 4. Bioassay characterization.

The ADCC Reporter Bioassay was characterized in studies that evaluated accuracy, repeatability, intermediate precision and linearity across the 50–150% relative potency range. Dilution ranges for Control Antibody, Anti-CD20, were selected to ensure good coverage of upper and lower asymptotes and sufficient points in the intermediate dose-range for accurate slope and EC50 determinations. A series of relative potency samples, of 50%, 75%, 125% and 150% theoretical relative potency, were evaluated as triplicate dilution series of antibody dose on each of 3 different days. The effector-to-target cell ratio (E:T ratio) was 6:1. The ADCC Reporter Bioassay was characterized using ADCC Bioassay Target Cells (WIL2-S) and ADCC Bioassay Target Cells (Raji). 4PL curve fitting analysis was performed with GraphPad Prism® software, and relative potencies were calculated after parallelism determination using SAS Institute JMP software. Relative potencies were calculated using the 100% reference sample run as a triplicate dilution series in the same assay plate as the test sample.

Detection of antibody glycosylation.Figure 5. Detection of antibody glycosylation.

Rituximab-blended samples containing mixes of fully deglycosylated and fully N-glycosylated antibody were assayed as serial dilutions against serial dilutions of a 100% reference sample of fully N-glycosylated rituximab using the ADCC Reporter Bioassay. Target cells were ADCC Bioassay Target Cells (WIL2-S), and the E:T ratio was 6:1. Biological activity was expressed relative to the 100% control run in the same assay plate and plotted against the % of N-glycosylation present. Linear regression analysis was performed to determine correlation.

ADCC Reporter Bioassay provides antibody activity ranking equivalent to classic LDH release ADCC bioassay.Figure 6. ADCC Reporter Bioassay provides antibody activity ranking equivalent to classic LDH release ADCC bioassay.

The graph shows correlation of relative ADCC activity with fraction of trastuzumab N-glycosylation. For the experiment, trastuzumab was N-deglycosylated using PNGase F, blended with fully N-glycosylated parent preparations to create test samples representing different % N-glycosylation (indicated on the X-axis) and assayed using either the ADCC Reporter Bioassay or a lytic LDH release ADCC bioassay in which PBMCs were used as effector cells. Target cells were SK-BR-3. For the ADCC Reporter Bioassay, ADCC pathway activation was measured by quantification of luciferase activity in the effector cell; for classic ADCC bioassay, LDH release from target cells was measured. For both assays, biological activity reflects downstream effects of effector cell FcγRIIIa crosslinking by antibody bound to target cells. Biological activity was determined and expressed relative to fully N-glycosylated trastuzumab, then plotted against percent N-glycosylated trastuzumab.
