August 27, 2013 -- Creative BioLabs has established a solid platform for DNA sequencing of both IgG and IgM types of monoclonal antibodies produced by mouse and rat hybridoma cell lines. The sequences of a monoclonal antibody are important for patent protection and therapeutic approval. Starting from a hybridoma cell line, Creative Biolabs offers the following services:

1. Validation of the hybridoma cell line in terms of antibody production, antibody isotyping and antigen-binding specificity;

2. RNA extraction and reverse transcription;

3. Full length IgG or Fab sequencing by PCR amplification and subcloning of the variable domains.

Therefore, in a total RNA [as well as cDNA] pool of the hybridoma cells, there are other antibody-like sequences [e.g. other IgG] that can be amplified along with the sequences of the target antibody. In fact, PCR amplifications intended to clone coding sequences [cDNAs] of the mouse/rat monoclonal antibody will inevitably amplify some other antibody-like sequences. This is the key challenge in sequencing the cDNAs of a particular monoclonal antibody. In extreme cases, a small phage display scFv/Fab library is constructed for each monoclonal antibody, and then the right scFv/Fab clones are selected against the original antigen.

For antibodies intended for therapeutic use or sequencing the N-terminals of the heavy chain and the light chain using protein sequencing methods to confirm the cDNA sequences cloned from hybridoma cell lines, you can contact info@Creative-Biolabs.Com or call 1-631-871-5806.
