Specifically Quantitate the Effect of the FcγIIIa F158 Polymorphism

Fc receptor-mediated antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) is an important mechanism of action (MOA) by which antibodies target disease cells for elimination.

The ADCC Reporter Bioassays, F Variant, use NFAT-mediated luciferase activity in effector cells as indicator of ADCC MOA, providing an alternative to traditional primary cell based assays for measuring the effect of biologics on ADCC activity.

They are accurate, precise and stability-indicating and prequalified according to ICH guidelines, making them suitable for all stages of biologic research and development.

The Pathway

The human FcyRIIIa gene displays a polymorphism in the position coding for amino acid residue 158. This translates to a higher affinity FcyRIIIa variant having a valine at amino acid 158 (V158 and a lower affinity FcyRIIIa variant carrying phenylalanine F158). Killing of target cells is an endpoint of this pathway activation and is used in classic ADCC bioassays, which use donor peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) or the natural killer (NK) cell subpopulation as effector cells isolated from blood donors with FcyRIIIa VV, VF or FF alleles.

These primary cells can be highly variable in response, are tedious to prepare and can result in high background readings. It is highly challenging to quantitatively evaluate the impact of FcyRIIIa polymorphism by classic in vitro ADCC bioassays. The ADCC Reporter Bioassay, F Variant, overcomes many of these pain points. 

The Workflow

Standard bioassay workflow with cultured cells
Improved bioassay workflow with thaw-and-use cells

Standardized Reagents Improve Results

  • Thaw-and-use cell format provides significant time and labor savings over traditional methods while reducing variability.
  • Kit includes all of the required reagents in standardized formats.
  • Easily amenable to high-throughput workflows.

The Assay Principle

The Fc Effector Reporter Bioassays use an alternative readout from traditional primary cell based assays: the FcγR and NFAT-mediated activation of luciferase activity in the effector cells. Primary cells are replaced with a Jurkat cell line stably expressing human FcγRIIIa and NFAT-induced luciferase.

Luminescent Assay Monitors Fc Effector Activity

Following engagement with the Fc region of a relevant antibody bound to a Target Cell, ADCC Bioassay Effector Cells expressing FcγRIIIa F158 with transduce intracellular signals resulting in NFAT-mediated luciferase activity that can be easily quantified.

Assay Performance Data

Accuracy and Precision are critical to bioassays and development of biologics. The ADCC Reporter Bioassays are both accurate and precise. Accuracy is a measure of how close results are to a target or reference value. Precision is a measure of repeatability.

Accuracy: Measure of ability to replicate a reference or “target” value.

IntraLab Precision: Measure of repeatability from multiple assays of the same homogeneous sample under the same operating conditions over a short time (same analyst; same lab; same day).

Intermediate Precision: Measure of repeatability of multiple assays of the same homogeneous sample with different analysts or equipment or on different days.

Linearity: Ability of the assay to provide measured values that are proportional to the concentration of the sample.

 A 50–200% theoretical relative potency series was analyzed in triplicate in three independent experiments performed on three days. The effector-to-target cell ratio (E:T ratio) was 6:1. The ADCC Reporter Bioassay, F Variant, was characterized using ADCC Bioassay Target Cells (WIL2-S). Data were analyzed and relative potencies calculated after parallelism determination using PLA2.1 software from Stegmann Systems GmbH. Data were generated using thaw-and-use cells.
