Identification of novel macropinocytosing human antibodies by phage display and high-content analysis.

Ha K, Bidlingmaier S, Su Y, Lee N, Liu B (2017) Identification of novel macropinocytosing human antibodies by phage display and high-content analysis. Methods Enzymol 585:91-110. doi: 10.1016/bs.mie.2016.10.004

Objective: To describe a method for identifying antibodies that internalize via macropinocytosis by screening phage-displayed single-chain antibody selection outputs with an automated fluorescent microscopy-based high-content analysis platform.

Summary: Novel phage antibodies are identified by colocalization with macropinocytosis marker, converted into full-length human antibodies, and further characterized with regard to cell binding, pathway of internalization, and intracellular payload delivery.

Usage: Biotinylated IgG is mixed with Streptavidin-ZAP in 1:1 molar ratio to form an immunotoxin that is serially-diluted in a cytotoxicity assay.
