Contribution of variable domains to the stability of humanized IgG1 monoclonal antibodies

Contribution of variable domains to the stability of humanized IgG1 monoclonal antibodies Choosing the best antibody to progress in your biologic pipeline. Temperature-induced unfolding of three humanized IgG1 monoclonal antibodies and their Fab and Fc fragments was monitored by differential scanning calorimetry at neutral pH. With some exceptions, the thermogram of the intact antibody presents two peaks and the transition with the larger experimental enthalpy contains the contribution from the Fab fragments. Although the measured enthalpy was similar for all three Fab fragments studied, the apparent melting temperatures were found to vary significantly, even for Fab fragments originating from the same human germline.
