Fc fragments contain the carboxy-terminal parts of the heavy chain constant regions that are responsible for the effector functions of an immunoglobulin (COMPLEMENT fixation, binding to the cell membrane via FC RECEPTORS, and placental transport). This fragment can be obtained by digestion of immunoglobulins with the proteolytic enzyme PAPAIN.

  • Promisingly, crystallizable fragment (Fc) antigen-binding fragment and monomeric antibody or half antibody may be particularly advantageous to target solid tumors owing to their small size and thus good tissue penetration potential while, on the other hand, keeping Fc-related effector functions such as antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity, complement-dependent cytotoxicity, antibody-dependent cell-mediated phagocytosis, and extended serum half-life via interaction with neonatal Fc receptor. (
  • The two arms of the Y-shaped molecule form the antigen-binding domains called antigen-binding fragment (Fab) regions, and the stalk forms the crystallizable fragment (Fc) region. (

  • The antigen-specific antibodies are mostly determined by means of ELISA, the antigen being coated on a microtiter plate, followed by incubation with the antibodies to be characterized, and finally with enzyme-labelled monoclonal anti-IgG subclass-specific antibody. (
  • These effector functions, mediated via the (constant) Fc fragment are induced as a result of interaction of the antibody with its antigen via the (variable) Fab moiety. (
  • This difference is related to differences in structure, notably with respect to the interaction between the variable, antigen-binding Fab-fragments and the constant Fc fragment (figure 4). (

(
  • Two tops of the "Y" shape contain the fragment antigen-binding region (Fab) including the variable domain (Fv) of the light and heavy chains. (
  • The amino acid sequence of this variable region varies greatly among different antibodies, which gives the antibody its specificity for binding to the antigen. (
  • While assessment of antibody glycoform compositions observed across total plasma IgG has identified differences associated with a variety of clinical conditions, in many cases it is the glycosylation state of only antibodies against a specific antigen or set of antigens that may be of interest, for example, in defining the potential effector function of antibodies produced during disease or after vaccination. (
  • Historically, glycoprofiling such antigen-specific antibodies in clinical samples has been challenging due to their low prevalence, the high sample requirement for most methods of glycan determination, and the lack of high-throughput purification methods. (
  • New methods of glycoprofiling with lower sample requirements and higher throughput have motivated the development of microscale and automatable methods for purification of antigen-specific antibodies from polyclonal sources such as clinical serum samples. (
