Targeting Talk: Cytotoxicity of Unbound Saporin

  • We are re-examining some data collected using an immunotoxin not prepared by your company (VChAT-sap). Our results in vivo indicated that there were nonspecific effects although the creators claimed it was specific. We ran a Western Blot and determined that about half the saporin was not bound to the antibody. This may have been the problem but I want to confirm the cytotoxicity of unbound saporin. Can you confirm that? Further, the antibody in question never bound selectively in ferret tissue. Does this suggest a problem as well? Can you give me information on the best way to design and test an immunotoxin.
