Description

FragIT kit contains immobilized FabRICATOR (IdeS) enzyme on agarose beads in spin columns and CaptureSelectTM for affinity capture of Fc fragments. FragIT digests antibodies or Fc-fusion proteins at one single amino acid position below the hinge region generating Fc and F(ab’)2 fragments. CaptureSelectTM spin columns capture Fc fragments for purification of F(ab’)2 and Fc fragments (other CaptureSelectTM resin needed for rabbit IgG, please inquire). FragIT kit provides digestion and purification of 0.5 – 100 mg of antibody or Fc-fusion protein without residual enzyme in the final preparation.

FAQs

We can only guarantee optimal digestion for one-time use. We do not have a cleaning or regeneration protocol to provide. However, depending on the antibody and the following application the column can be reused. We do not recommend using with different antibodies due to the risk for contamination of carry-over from previous sample. If column reuse is desired store the column in 10-20% ethanol at +4-8°C.

It is possible to elute the Fc fragments from the CaptureSelect column using a low pH buffer, for example a 0.1M Glycine buffer pH=3.0. The pH must immediately after elution be adjusted to neutral pH by adding 0.1x elution volume of 1M Tris pH=8.0.

FragIT digests rabbit IgG but to capture the Fc fragments in the affinity step you need another resin than the Capture Select Fc normally included in the kit. Please contact the Genovis team if you are interested in processing rabbit IgG and we will provide columns with resin compatible with rabbit Fc in the FragIT kit.

Genovis has chosen CaptureSelect in the FragIT Kit for removal of Fc fragments. CaptureSelect has a very high specific affinity for the Fc. Both protein A and MabSelect Sure (GE) may have affinity for the Fab which may result in a lower recovery of the generated F(ab’)2 fragments and the degree of affinity is antibody dependent. We have many customer reports on this subject, and they usually come back to us for the CaptureSelect columns for the above reason.

FabRICATOR is a cysteine protease. It should not result in any other modifications than the digestion of the peptide bond. Digestion will be between the two Glycines (…CPAPELLG / GPSVF…) and the C-terminus will regain the carboxyl group – that is addition of one OH-group and the N-terminal amino group will be regained (addition of one H).

In summary, R1-CO-NH-R2 + H2O –> R1-COOH + NH2-R2.

FabRICATOR® cleave the IgG molecule in one specific site in the lower hinge region of the anitbody leaving a F(ab’)2 fragment and a Fc-fragment.
