Simple Bioassay, Consistent Results

The ICOS Blockade Bioassay is a bioluminescent cell-based assay used to measure the potency and stability of of ligands or antibodies that bind and block ICOS/ICOSL. ICOS (CD278) binds to its ligand ICOSL (B7-H2, CD275), which is constitutively expressed on B cells, monocytes and dendritic cells, and can be induced on endothelial and epithelial cells during inflammation. ICOS co-stimulation induces the production of effector T cell cytokines such as interferon (IFN)-γ, interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-10.

The ICOS Blockade Bioassay reflects the mechanism of action (MOA) of biologics designed to block the interaction of ICOS with its ligand, ICOSL.

ICOS Blockade Bioassay Components

The assay consists of two genetically engineered cell lines:

ICOS Effector Cells: Jurkat T cells expressing endogenous TCR/CD3 and ICOS, and a NanoLuc® luciferase reporter driven by TCR/CD3 and ICOS pathway-dependent response elements.

ICOSL aAPC/CHO-K1 Cells: CHO-K1 cells expressing an engineered cell surface protein designed to activate TCR/CD3 in an antigen-independent manner, and ICOSL.

The ICOS Effector Cells and ICOSL aAPC/CHO-K1 Cells are also available in Cell Propagation Model format (CPM; Cat.# JA6072) as cryopreserved cells that can be thawed, propagated and banked for long-term use.

When the two cell types are co-cultured, the ICOSL aAPC/CHO-K1 Cells activate TCR/CD3 and ICOS on the ICOS Effector Cells to induce maximum promoter-mediated luminescence. Adding a biologic that blocks ICOS/ICOSL inhibits co-stimulation by ICOS and results in decreased promoter-mediated luminescence.

Workflow

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

Standardized Reagents Improve Results

  • Thaw-and-use 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.

Assay Principle

The ICOS Blockade Bioassay measures the potency and stability of biologics designed to block the ICOS/ICOSL interaction.

Representation of the ICOS Blockade Bioassay.

Representation of the ICOS Blockade Bioassay. The ICOS Blockade Bioassay consists of two cell lines, ICOS Effector Cells and ICOSL aAPC/CHO-K1 Cells. When co-cultured, ICOSL aAPC/CHO-K1 Cells activate TCR/CD3 and ICOS on the ICOS Effector Cells to induce maximum promoter-mediated luminescence. Adding a biologic that blocks ICOS/ICOSL inhibits T cell co-stimulation by ICOS and results in decreased promoter-mediated luminescence. This decrease in luminescence can be detected in a dose-dependent manner by adding Bio-Glo-NL™ Reagent and quantitating with a luminometer.

Assay Performance Data

Accuracy and precision are critical to bioassays and the development of biologics. The ICOS Blockade Bioassay is 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. This assay was developed and prequalified according to ICH guidelines for accuracy and precision giving it the performance characteristics required for many applications of a bioassay used for antibody drug discovery research and development.

Accuracy: Measure of how close results are to 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 potency series of Control Ab, Anti-ICOS, was analyzed in triplicate in three independent experiments performed on three days by two analysts using the ICOS Blockade Bioassay. Bio-Glo-NL™ Luciferase Reagent was added, and luminescence was quantified using the GloMax® Discover System. Data were analyzed, and relative potencies were calculated after parallelism determination using JMP® software. Data were generated using thaw-and-use cells.

ICOS Effector Cells were incubated with ICOSL aAPC/CHO-K1 Cells in the presence of serial titrations of blocking antibodies as indicated. After a 6-hour induction, Bio-Glo-NL™ Reagent was added and luminescence quantified using the GloMax® Discover System. Data were generated using thaw-and-use cells.

 ICOS Effector Cells and a titration of Control Ab, Anti-ICOS

ICOSL aAPC/CHO-K1 Cells were added to a 96-well assay overnight. On the day of assay, ICOS Effector Cells and a titration of Control Ab, Anti-ICOS (Cat.# K1241), were added. After a 6-hour induction at 37°C, Bio-Glo-NL™ Luciferase Reagent was added and luminescence measured using the GloMax® Discover System.

  • ICOS Blockade Bioassay is available in 1X and 5X sizes.
  • Control Ab, Anti-ICOS (Cat.# K1241), is available separately.
