Photochem Photobiol Sci 17:539-551. doi: 10.1039/C7PP00358G

Summary: The combination of the drug delivery technology PCI and CSPG4-targeting immunotoxins is an efficient, specific and light-controlled strategy for the elimination of aggressive cells of TNBC and malignant melanoma origin. This study lays the foundation for further preclinical evaluation of PCI in combination with CSPG4-targeting.

Usage: To obtain the immunotoxin 225.28-saporin, Streptavidin-Saporin (Cat. #IT-27; Streptavidin-ZAP), with an average of 2.5 molecules of saporin per molecule of streptavidin, was combined with biotinylated 225.28, a CSPG4-specific mouse mAb, IgG2a.
