6. CoNct usloN The aim of the thesis was to establish, in the national conditions, technology of preparation of antibody reconrbinant fragrnents and to verífo the cornplete procedure using several model monoclonal antibodies with a potential diagnostic and therapeutic use. For tfuee antibodies' mAb TU-20, M75 and MEM97, recombinant |Ťagments in various formats (scFv fragments monovalent and bivalent, i.e. diabody, and intrabody for intracellular expression) were constructed and for their heterologous expression, vectors allowing expression in E. coli (as cytoplasmic inclusions, periplasmic inclusions and in soluble form) and in Drosophila 32 cells (expression of glycosylated forms of scFv fragments into the medium) were used. In case of proteins expressed in irrsoluble form, especially scFv F|1.2.32, renaturation procedures to obtain active scFv fragments were developed and optimized.

A Phenylnorstatine Inhibitor Binding to HIV-1 Protease: Geometry, Protonation and Subsite-Pocket Interactions Analyzed at Atomic Resolution
Brynda, Jiří ; Řezáčová, Pavlína ; Fábry, Milan ; Hořejší, Magdalena ; Štouračová, Renata ; Sedláček, Juraj ; Souček, M. ; Hradílek, M. ; Lepšík, M. ; Konvalinka, J.
The x-ray structure of a complex of HIV-1 protease (PR) with a phenylnorstatine inhibitor Z-Pns-Phe-Glu-Glu-NH2 has been determined at 1.03 A, the highest resolution so far reported for any HIV PR complex. The inhibiot shows subnanomolar Ki values for both the wild-type PR and the variant representing one of the most common mutations linked to resistance developoment. The structure displays a unique pattern of hydrogen bonding to the two catalytic aspartate residues. The high resolution permits to assess the donor/acceptor realtions of this hydrogen bonding and to indicate a proton shared by the two catalytic residues. Structural mechanism for the unimpaired ihnibition of the protease Val82Ala mutant is also suggested, based on energy calculations and analyses.
Structural basis of HIV-1 and HIV-2 protease inhibition bya monoclonal antibody
Řezáčová, Pavlína ; Lescar, J. ; Brynda, Jiří ; Fábry, Milan ; Bentley, G. A. ; Sedláček, Juraj
The murine monoclonal antibody 1696, produced by immunisation with the HIV-1 protease,inhibits the catalytic activity of the enzyme of both the HIV-1 and HIV-2 isolates, with inhibitionconstants in the low nanomolar range. This antibody cross-reacts with peptides that include theN-terminus of the enzyme (residues 1-7), a region which is highly conserved in sequence amongdifferent viral strains and which, furthermore, is crucial for homodimerization to the activeenzymatic form.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" />We report here two crystal structures of a recombinant single-chain Fv fragment of mAb 1696,expressed in E. coli, as a complex with a cross-reactive peptides from the HIV-1 PR and theHIV-2 PR at 2.7 ? resolution and 1.9 ? resolution respectively. On the basis of the interactionsseen in the complex three-dimensional structures, the cross-reactivity between mAb 1696 withthe HIV-1 and HIV-2 protease and their N-terminal peptides can be explained. In addition, acandidate mechanism of HIV PR inhibition by mAb 1696 is proposed which may help thedesign of alternative HIV protease inhibitors, aimed at dissociating the homodimeric viral enzyme.
Molecular cloning, E.coli expression and purification of SCFV antibody fragments of diagnostic/therapeutic interest
Král, Vlastimil ; Fábry, Milan ; Hořejší, Magdalena ; Závada, Jan ; Sedláček, Juraj
We describe molecular cloning, expression, purification and properties of two single chain antibody variable fragments (scFv) of potential diagnostic use, namely scFv M75 and scFv Tu-20. The former scFv is derived from a monoclonal antibody M75 specific for a cell surface protein MN/CA IX, strongly associated with many types of human carcinomas. The latter scFv is derived from a monoclonal antibody TU-20 specific for neuronal beta-III-tubulin.
Crystallographic study of an anti=carbonic anhydrase IX monoclonal antibody M75

Carbonic anhydrase IX (CA IX) is a cell surface protein, strongly associated with certain types of human carcinomas. Structural study of a CA IX-binding monoclonal antibody (mAb) M75, complexed with its epitope peptide may contribute toward elucidation of the role of CA IX. Monoclonal antibody M75 was obtained and proved to react excellently with native and denaturated CA IX. Using synthetic oligopeptides, the epitope of mAb M75 was localized in the proteoglycan domain of CA IX, in the region of a tandem repeat and identified as amino acids PGEEDLP. The Fab fragment was obtained by papain cleavage. We obtained crystals of free Fab M75 and Fab M75 complexed with two different epitope peptides. The data set for Fab M75 was collected and the structure solving is underway.
