Presentation on theme: "AUC and DLS probes for protein aggregation Steve Harding & Arthur Rowe National Centre for Macromolecular Hydrodynamics The National Physical Laboratory,"— Presentation transcript:

1 AUC and DLS probes for protein aggregation Steve Harding & Arthur Rowe National Centre for Macromolecular Hydrodynamics The National Physical Laboratory, Teddington 9th December 2008

2 Questions Aggregation state in response to bioprocessing n-mers present and relative amounts Conformation of the monomer species before and after bioprocessing

3 A model of chimeric IgG3 wild type. A model of chimeric IgG3 m15 with 15aa in hinge. A model of chimeric hinge deleted IgG3 HM5. Conformation of Engineered antibodies Lu et al, Biophys. J. 2007

4 Stability Problems Aggregation or bits falling off during purification, sterilisation, shipping and storage processes. Temperature of storage and cycles of freeze thaw

5 Stability/aggregation Probes Analytical ultracentrifugation Dynamic Light Scattering ViscometrySEC/MALLs

6 Stability/aggregation Probes Analytical ultracentrifugation Dynamic Light Scattering ViscometrySEC/MALLs

7 Multi-angle DLS

8 Fixed angle DLS Cuvettes: Malvern nanozetasizer 90

9 Detector/ Correlator- Computer Correlator-Computer correlates fluctuations in intensity at angle due to the Brownian motion of the macromolecules. An intensity autocorrelation function g (2) (t) is calculated and its decay with time gives us the diffusion coefficient D
