Title: Streamlining the Transition From Yeast Surface Display of Antibody Fragment Immune Libraries to the Production as IgG Format in Mammalian Cells
Language: English
Abstract:

Yeast-surface display (YSD) is commonly applied to screen Fab immune or naïve libraries for binders of predefined target molecules. However, reformatting of isolated variants represents a time-intensive bottleneck. Herein, we present a novel approach to facilitate a lean transition from antibody screening using YSD Fab libraries to the production of full-length IgG antibodies in Expi293-F cells. In this study, utilizing Golden Gate Cloning (GGC) and a bidirectional promoter system, an exemplary Fab-displaying YSD library was generated based on immunised transgene rats. After subsequent screening for antigen-specific antibody candidates by fluorescence-activated cell sorting (FACS), the Fab-encoding genes were subcloned into a bidirectional mammalian expression vector, exhibiting CH2-CH3 encoding genes, in a GGC-mediated, PCR-free manner. This novel, straightforward and time-saving workflow allows the VH/VL pairing to be preserved. This study resulted in antibody variants exhibiting suitable biophysical properties and covered a broad VH diversity after two rounds of FACS screening, as revealed by NGS analysis. Ultimately, we demonstrate that the implication of such a gene transfer system streamlines antibody hit discovery efforts, allowing the faster characterisation of antibodies against a plethora of targets that may lead to new therapeutic agents.
