Antibody Characterization

The Genovis enzymes have gained widespread use within the development and production of antibody-based therapeutics. Due to the high specificity and robustness of the enzymes, they are becoming an important tool for the ever-increasing demand of analytical characterization of large and complex biomolecules.

Analysis of N- and O-glycosylation

Scientists at Genovis have discovered O-glycan-specific enzymatic tools including: OpeRATOR® - an O-glycan-specific endoprotease, OglyZOR® - an O-glycosidase and SialEXO® - a sialidase mix for removal of sialic acids.

EXOglycosidases from Genovis include GalactEXO for efficient removal of galactose and SialEXO for hydrolysis of sialic acids.

Antibody Conjugation

The novel and unique conjugation technology GlyCLICK® offers opportunities for site-specific conjugation of antibodies, using a two step enzymatic process and click-chemistry. GlyCLICK applications include e.g. ADC development, fluorescent imaging and in vivo imaging. GlyCLICK is a modular technology applicable to IgG from several species and subclasses and offers a robust and quantitative conjugation of 2 labels per antibody.

Generation of Antibody Fragments

Use FabRICATOR® to rapidly generate F(ab')2 and Fc/2 fragments from several species and subclasses of IgG, including human IgG1-4. Intact Fabs are easily generated from human IgG1 using the IgG-specific FabALACTICA® enzyme or GingisKHAN®.

Deglycosylation of IgG

IgGZERO® (EndoS) and GlycINATOR® (EndoS2) rapidly hydrolyze N-glycans on the Fc domain of IgG. GlycINATOR removes all Fc glycoforms, including high-mannose and hybrid-type glycans. IgGZERO removes complex Fc glycoforms, but has limited activity on high-mannose and hybrid-type glycans.
