Ha K, Bidlingmaier S, Zhang Y, Su Y, Liu B (2014) High-content analysis of antibody phage-display library selection outputs identifies tumor selective macropinocytosis-dependent rapidly internalizing antibodies. Mol Cell Proteomics 13:3320-3331. doi: 10.1074/mcp.M114.039768
Summary: Macropinocytosis, the internalization of large endocytic vesicles called macropinosomes, is upregulated in Ras-transformed cancers. To date, large-scale antibody generation strategies have not incorporated a selection method for antibodies. In this work the authors demonstrate screening and validation of the antibodies that utilize the macropinosome pathway. One method used was to biotinylate the antibodies and combine them with Streptavidin-ZAP (Cat. #IT-27) at a 1:1 ratio. The conjugate was applied to cells in a concentration curve starting at 200 nM in order to demonstrate internalization and cell killing.
