Section I. Key Benefits of PEAKS AB Service

  • Fast: 1 to 3 week(s) turnaround time.
  • Full and In-depth Sequence Coverage: Each amino acid is mapped to more than 20 unique peptides and 100% sequence coverage.
  • Accuracy: Every amino acid in CDRs is confidently supported by pairs of intense fragment ions in at least 10 MS2 scans.
  • Validation by Intact Mass: Intact mass measurements of heavy and light chains for double-confirmation of C-terminal lysine truncation and assembled de novo sequences.
  • 2-Tier Leu vs. Ile Differentiation: Differentiation of isoleucine and leucine using enzyme digestion specificity and proprietary homology database analysis.

Section II. Method Overview

Based on 17 year’s expertise in mass spectrometry data analysis, our team keeps improving our proprietary workflow and software for de novo antibody sequencing. Our standard procedure combines bottom-up and top-down MS techniques to construct and validate the de novo protein sequence and consists of the following steps:

Bottom-up sequencing procedure
1. Digest antibody protein into overlapping peptides using an optimized set of orthogonal enzymes.
2. Analyze peptides by high resolution LC-MS/MS (Thermo Orbitrap series mass spectrometer).
3. Peptide de novo sequencing from tandem mass spectra.
4. Construct antibody sequence by assembling de novo peptide sequences.
5. Ile/Leu differentiation by using enzyme digestion specificity and proprietary homology database analysis.
6. Manual confirmation and report generation by our scientists.

Intact mass validation procedure:
1. Reduce antibody protein to separate light and heavy chains.
2. Remove N-linked glycans from the heavy chain by PNGase F.
3. Analyze the reduced mixtures by LC-MS (Waters Q-TOF mass spectrometer).
4. Deconvolution of acquired MS spectra to derive masses of light and heavy chains respectively.
5. Manual confirmation and report generation by our scientists.

Section III. Sample Requirements

Protein amount: > 200µg
Purity: > 95%
Species: Any (we have successfully sequenced antibodies of human, mouse, rat, rabbit, hamster, etc.)

Section I. Method Overview

Based on 17 year’s expertise in mass spectrometry data analysis, our team keeps improving our proprietary workflow and software for de novo antibody sequencing. We use state-of-the-art mass spectrometry technologies that can distinguish isoleucine and leucine by w-ion.

Our standard procedure is comprised of following steps:

  1. Digest purified proteins into overlapping peptides using an optimized set of orthogonal enzymes.
  2. Analyze peptides by an optimized EThcD methodology on a high resolution mass spectrometer (Thermo Fusion Lumos).
  3. Peptide de novo sequencing from tandem mass spectra.
  4. Ile/Leu differentiation by signature w-ions generated by EThcD fragmentation.
  5. Use of various enzymes with distinctive cleavage specificity (optional).
  6. Statistical comparison of homologous databases for conservative sites in the mAb constant regions and framework regions (optional).
  7. Manual confirmation and report generation by our scientists.

Section III. Why is Leu/Ile differentiation needed?

Although leucine (Leu) and isoleucine (Ile) share exactly the same molecular weight, their different structures may dramatically influence protein functions. To thoroughly characterize a protein of interest, especially a therapeutic protein, researchers have to cautiously examine each Leu/Ile position in the protein sequence. Particularly, for Leu/Ile residues in and near CDRs of an antibody, flipping between Leu/Ile may result in significant differences in its biochemical properties.

Our Leu/Ile differentiation service provides a precise identification of Leu and Ile residues during protein sequencing and to help dramatically reduce the cost in the subsequent expression stage. For instance, a target protein which contains 4 undetermined Leu/Ile residues would need up to 16 constructs expressed to fully test which residue is correct. This does not even take codon combinations into account! With our Leu/Ile differentiation service, you no longer need to guess and repeatedly test, but be 100% certain from the start.

For the purpose of protein sequence validation, our Leu/Ile differentiation service can help you confirm the expression of Leu/Ile in your protein of interest and discover potential sequence variants.

  • Positive review for De Novo Antibody Sequencing:

    February 2017

    "Both the scientific work and the project management was very professionally handled. When there was an unexpected sample quality issue found during the preliminary lab work prior to sequencing, it was promptly communicated and immediately addressed. The data report was amended with additional details of the project as per our request without any pushback.The scientific rigor of the data quality and analyses was impressive. I would highly recommend BSI to anyone looking for a protein sequencing work."
