Single B-cell sequencing is an efficient monoclonal antibody development and screening strategy whose principle is based on the amplification of genes encoding the VH and VL region from B-cells directly. This technology presents several advantages making it a very useful approach for antibody biology understanding and for antibody use in clinical essays. Among these advantages, single B-cell sorting is characterized by:
To date, several techniques have been developed to isolate and screen monoclonal antibodies (mAbs). This table summarizes the main advantages and drawbacks of each technique.
Single B cell isolation plays a vital role in diverse research and clinical applications, facilitating the isolation of pure B cell populations for in-depth studies.
Understanding immune responses, uncovering novel antibodies, and developing immunotherapies heavily rely on the precision and efficiency of this technique. By isolating specific B cell subsets, researchers gain valuable insights into immune system functioning, enabling advancements in vaccine development, autoimmune disease research, understanding immunodeficiencies, allergy research, infectious diseases, and cancer immunotherapy.
The ability to extract high-affinity antibodies directly from B cells expedites antibody discovery, accelerating the development of potential therapeutics. With its broad applications across immunology and medicine, single B cell antibody technologies stand as powerful tools, propelling breakthroughs in numerous disciplines.
B-cells are a type of white blood cell commonly called a B lymphocyte. They function by providing organisms with adaptive immunity to infections, a subcomponent of the humoral immune response. Specifically, the role of a B-cell is to produce antibody molecules that are either cell membrane-bound B-cell receptors or soluble immunoglobulins.
The B-cell receptor, expressed by naive and memory B-cells, facilitates the interaction between B cells and foreign antigens. After encountering a foreign antigen, a naive or memory B-cell undergoes activation, leading to its proliferation and transformation into a specialized cell called a plasma cell, which secretes antibodies.
Each antibody secreted by a single activated B-cell has a monovalent affinity toward a specific antigen. This means the antibodies bind a single epitope, the part of an antigen recognized by an antibody. The monovalent antibodies secreted from a single B-cell clonal lineage are called monoclonal antibodies. Monoclonal antibodies comprise four polypeptide chains, two identical heavy chains, and two identical light chains. The heavy and light chains are held together by several disulfide bonds that help the polypeptide chains fold to form a Y-shaped tetramer. Biomedical scientists use these epitope-specific antibodies to detect the presence of specific macromolecules and by physicians to treat cancer, autoimmune diseases, and genetic disorders.
Single B-cell sorting is used to isolate individual B-cells to assess how well the secreted antibodies bind a target antigen. Traditional methods of monoclonal antibody development did not involve the isolation and cell culture of single B cells. However, isolating individual B-cells and characterizing the secreted monoclonal antibodies helps scientists capture diverse antibody repertoires improving the probability of discovering rare antibodies with therapeutic potential.
The first step in B-cell isolation involves the immunization of rabbits against a target antigen. This step is important for stimulating the differentiation of naive B-cells into antigen-specific antibody-producing cells.
The success of any B-cell isolation project is critically dependent on the quality of the antigen used in the immunization process. For this reason, ProteoGenix can design, synthesize, isolate, and purify each antigen used in our rabbit immunization protocol. This guarantees that specific quality, purity, and concentration standards are achieved for the success of each B-cell isolation project.
Following several rounds of immunization, blood PBMCs, and spleens are collected so antigen-specific B-cells can be isolated. This B-cell isolation step occurs between 6 and 8 weeks after the first rounds of immunization.
Single B-cells are sorted by incubating the cells with a biotin-conjugated target antigen followed by incubation with a streptavidin-conjugated fluorophore. The resulting fluorescently labeled antigen-specific B-cells are separated by FACS into individual wells (1 cell per well) of a tissue culture plate. The secreted antibodies are screened to detect antigen binding capacity by ELISA. This process takes between two and three weeks to complete.
Once we identify the monoclonal antibodies with the highest target antigen affinity, we clone the corresponding VH and VL gene segments and transiently express the gene products using our proprietary high-performance XtenCHO cells.
As an additional service, ProteoGenix can identify clones with the ability to neutralize specific targets or assess the crossreactivity profile of a specific antibody.
Traditional monoclonal antibody technology involves creating a hybrid cell line by fusing B-cells from immunized mice with an immortal B-cell myeloma cell line. The resulting fused cells are referred to as hybridoma cells because they are a hybrid between a healthy B-cell and a transformed B-cell. Hybridoma cells are isolated and separated into individual wells to assess the antigen-binding potential of the secreted antibodies.
The process of B-cell fusion is inefficient. Many B-cells are lost during this process, decreasing the probability of discovering a rare antibody that binds difficult-to-target epitopes. In contrast, our single B-cell screening method maximizes the B-cell isolation and characterization of antibodies secreted from B-cells increasing the probability of discovering rare antibodies that bind a target antigen with precision.
Picking the right team of antibody experts to isolate single B-cells for monoclonal antibody production is critically important given the numerous challenges involved in B-cell isolation. First, the ability to make custom antigens, including conformation-dependent antigens, is critical to success. These antigens are not only necessary for the immunization steps but also for the isolation of antigen-specific B-cells by FACS. The synthesized antigen must be a specific purity and concentration for optimal success.
Successful B-cell isolation also requires an array of properly calibrated precision instruments to isolate B-cells and verify antigen binding capacity. In addition, the ability to culture naive and memory B-cells requires well-optimized conditions to promote cell proliferation and maintain cell viability. These parameters alone require years of optimization and expertise.
