Cloning and sequencing of V genes from anti-osteosarcoma monoclonal antibodies TP-1 and TP-3: location of lysine residues and implications for radiolabeling.
Monoclonal antibodies TP-1 and TP-3 are of potential utility for the radioimmunodiagnosis of osteosarcoma in both human and canine patients. The V genes of these antibodies were cloned and sequenced and to facilitate radiolabeling of these proteins, the location of the lysine residues within these sequences have been determined. The V-domains of TP-1 contain a total of 12 lysines, 10 in the framework region and 2 in the CDR region, while the V-domains of TP-3 contain a total of 14 lysines, 11 in the framework region and 3 in the CDR regions. Using space-filling models, the availability of each lysine residue for radiolabeling, and potential interference with antigen binding was predicted.
