Can FabALACTICA and FabRICATOR be used in the same reaction?

Yes, for human IgG1 molecules both enzymes can be used in combination to generate a specific hinge peptide. The incubation time is significantly longer for FabALACTICA and it is recommended to first run the FabALACTICA digest and then add FabRICATOR for the last 30 min.

Can I use FragIT kit for generation and purification of fragments from Rabbit IgG?

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.

Can I use FabRICATOR and PNGaseF in the same reaction?

Yes, PNGaseF and FabRICATOR can be used in a one-pot reaction as long as the reaction conditions follow the specifications for the FabRICATOR enzyme. It is important to have native reaction conditions for FabRICATOR to remain active.

Can I use FabRICATOR MagIC in a automation system?

FabRICATOR MagIC is suitable for using in automated systems that can handle magnetic beads. On the applications page you can read about how it’s used in a KingFisher™ workflow.

Which digestion buffers are compatible with FabRICATOR MagIC?

The protocol for FabRICATOR MagIC is based on using standard PBS pH 7.4 as digestion buffer. FabRICATOR in solution is compatible with most commonly used buffers at pH=6-8 and the same buffers should work for FabRICATOR MagIC, but the incubation time might need to be optimized.

What is the FabRICATOR MagIC?

The FabRICATOR MagIC magnetic beads with immobilized FabRICATOR (IdeS) enzyme.

Can I re-use FragIT columns?

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.

What is the FabRICATOR-HPLC?

FabRICATOR-HPLC is an HPLC column with the FabRICATOR (IdeS) protease immobilized on a HPLC compatible matrix for automated antibody subunit generation.

Which digestion buffers are compatible with FabRICATOR-HPLC?

We have tested PBS and 150 mM ammonium acetate, pH7 with good results. More buffers were found to be compatible with FabRICATOR digestion in solution (more info) and should be suitable for FabRICATOR-HPLC as well. However, the ionic strength of the buffer influences retention of the antibody fragments on the FabRICATOR-HPLC column and a minimum of 100-150 mM salt is necessary for IgG1 subunits to elute as a single, narrow peak. Other IgG subclasses or fusion proteins might need some optimization of buffer composition.
