Repertoires of aggregation-resistant human antibody domains
We recently described a method for the generation of a large human domain antibody repertoire involving combinatorial assembly of CDR building blocks from a smaller repertoire comprising a high frequency of aggregation-resistant antibody domains. Here we show that the frequency of aggregation-resistant domains in the combinatorial repertoire remained high. Furthermore, one of the antigen-binding domains selected from the combinatorial repertoire retained its binding properties through 25 cycles of thermal denaturation, suggesting that antibody domains can be created that rival the heat-resistance of thermophilic proteins such as Taq polymerase.
