Measure the ability of biologics to block immune checkpoint signals

PD-1 and TIGIT are both immune inhibitory receptors that are expressed on T cells. Engagement of PD-1 by PD-L1 on an adjacent cell inhibits TCR signaling and TCR-mediated proliferation, transcriptional activation and cytokine production. The ligand for TIGIT is CD155. TIGIT negatively regulates NK cell killing and T cell activation by competing with CD226 for binding to CD155 and by directly interfering with CD226 homodimerization.

Preclinical cancer studies suggest that targeted therapies that simultaneously block PD-1 and TIGIT are superior to those that block either pathway alone. The PD-1+TIGIT Combination Bioassay reflects the mechanism of action (MOA) of biologics designed to block the PD-1/PD-L1 and TIGIT/CD155 interactions.

Control Ab, Anti-TIGIT, is a mouse monoclonal antibody that shows blocking activity of TIGIT with its ligand, CD155. It is intended for use as a control with the PD-1+TIGIT Combination Bioassay and the TIGIT/CD155 Blockade Bioassay. These assays can be used to measure the potency and stability of antibodies and other biologics designed to block the TIGIT/CD155 interaction.

TIGIT Negative Cells are for use as a negative control in the TIGIT/CD155 Blockade Bioassay. TIGIT Negative Cells are activated by engagement of the TCR/CD3 complex and costimulatory receptor CD28 co-engagement.

Assay Components

The assay consists of two genetically engineered cell lines:

PD-1+TIGIT Effector Cells: Jurkat T cells engineered to express human PD-1 and human TIGIT with a luciferase reporter driven by a native promoter that can respond to both TCR activation and CD226 co-stimulation

PD-L1+CD155 aAPC/CHO-K1 Cells: CHO-K1 cells engineered to express human PD-L1 and human CD155 with an engineered cell-surface protein designed to activate the TCR complex in an antigen-independent manner

When the two cell types are co-cultured, PD-1 binds to PD-L1 and inhibits TCR-induced activation and promoter-mediated luminescence. In addition, TIGIT inhibits CD226 activation and promoter-mediated luminescence. Addition of an anti-PD-1 Ab or an anti-TIGIT Ab blocks the interaction of PD-1 with PD-L1 or TIGIT with CD155, respectively, and results in a modest enhancement in promoter-mediated luminescence. Addition of antibodies that block both PD-1/PD-L1 and TIGIT/CD155 will result in much higher promoter-mediated luminescence due to synergy between these pathways.

The PD-1+TIGIT Combination Bioassay, Propagation Model, allows propagation and banking of the PD-1+TIGIT Effector Cells. Bio-Glo™ Luciferase Assay System (Cat.# G7940, G7941) is the required reagent for use with the PD-1+TIGIT Combination Bioassay, Propagation Model.

The Workflow

Traditional Method

Standard bioassay workflow with cultured cells

'Cells as reagents' Method

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 PD-1+TIGIT Combination Bioassay is a bioluminescent cell-based assay that overcomes the limitations of existing assays and can be used to measure the potency and stability of antibodies and other biologics targeting PD-1 and TIGIT.

Representation of the PD-1+TIGIT Combination Bioassay. The bioassay consists of two genetically engineered cell lines, PD-1+TIGIT Effector Cells and PD-L1+CD155 aAPC/CHO-K1 Cells. Panel A. When co-cultured, PD-1 inhibits TCR pathway-activated luminescence, and TIGIT inhibits CD226 pathway-activated luminescence. The addition of anti-PD-1 Ab blocks PD-1 binding to PD-L1, resulting in full TCR pathway activation. The addition of anti-TIGIT Ab blocks the TIGIT/CD155 interaction, thereby re-establishing CD226 pathway-activated luminescence. Blocking of PD-1/PD-L1 and TIGIT/CD155 can be detected in a dose-dependent manner by addition of Bio-Glo™ Reagent and quantitation with a luminometer. Panel B. When co-cultured with Effector Cells that do not express PD-1 or TIGIT (Cat.# J1920), TCR activation and CD226/CD155 induce luminescence.

Assay Performance Data

Accuracy and Precision are critical to bioassays and the development of biologics. The PD-1+TIGIT Combination 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 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 your assay to provide measured values that are proportional to the concentration of the sample.

A 50–200% theoretical potency series of a 1:1 ratio of nivolumab (anti-PD-1 Ab) and Control Ab, Anti-TIGIT, was analyzed in triplicate in three independent experiments performed on three days by two analysts. Bio-Glo™ Reagent was added and luminescence quantified using the GloMax® Discover Detection System. Data were analyzed and relative potencies calculated after parallelism determination using JMP® software. Data were generated using thaw-and-use cells.
