Orthogonal Approaches for the Analysis of Protein Sequence and Post Translational Modifications of a Monoclonal Antibody

Monoclonal antibodies are an important class of biopharmaceuticals. They are expressed from living cells and therefore, are subject to complex biochemical pathways. Not all of these pathways are fully understood and many are known to be sensitive to subtle environmental changes during production. These changes may affect the final biopharmaceutical sequence, structure and post-translational modifications. This is in addition to any changes that may occur during subsequent purification. This means that the final product from one batch may be subtly different from another batch. Furthermore, each batch is a heterogeneous mix of similar molecules. Analysis of the degree of batch-tobatch variation, and batch heterogeneity, is therefore, very important to establish in order to be confident that the drug is safe and effective for medicinal use.

Characterisation of Biopharmaceutical Proteins

Reading Scientific Services Ltd (RSSL)

Over the next five years it is anticipated that there is going to be an explosion in the numbers of biosimilar products coming to market as patents expire. Consequently, in line with regulatory guidance, there will be a commensurate need to provide full characterisation of such biopharmaceuticals. The purpose of this article is to describe the array of the more common techniques used in biopharmaceutical characterisation (typically of protein or polypeptide). For full characterisation of a protein, the protein´┐Żs primary, secondary and tertiary structure as well as its physiochemical properties should be assessed.
