Measure the ability of biologics to block immune checkpoint signals

TIGIT, also known as WUCAM and Vstm3, is an immune checkpoint protein expressed on lymphocytes. Highest expression levels are observed on effector CD4+ and CD8+ T cells, regulatory T cells and NK cells. TIGIT has several distinct mechanisms of action that inhibit lymphocyte activation. First, TIGIT is an inhibitory counterpart of the co-stimulatory receptor CD226. When TIGIT is present on the surface of lymphocytes, it outcompetes CD226 for CD155 binding and thus negates CD226 signaling. Second, TIGIT inhibits CD226 homodimerization in cis, preventing CD226 signaling. Third, the cytoplasmic tail of TIGIT contains an immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM), which could potentially lead to inhibitory signaling.

The TIGIT/CD155 Blockade Bioassay reflects the mechanism of action (MOA) of biologics designed to block the TIGIT/CD155 interaction.

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:

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

CD155 aAPC/CHO-K1 Cells: CHO-K1 cells engineered to express 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, TIGIT inhibits CD226 activation and promoter-mediated luminescence. Addition of an anti-TIGIT antibody blocks the interaction of TIGIT with CD155 or inhibits the ability of TIGIT to prevent CD226 homodimerization, resulting in promoter-mediated luminescence.

The TIGIT/CD155 Blockade Bioassay is also available in CPM format, containing cryopreserved cells that can be thawed, propagated and banked for long-term use.

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 TIGIT/CD155 Blockade 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 TIGIT.

Representation of the TIGIT/CD155 Blockade Bioassay. The bioassay consists of two genetically engineered cell lines, TIGIT Effector Cells and CD155 aAPC/CHO-K1 Cells. Panel A. When co-cultured, TIGIT inhibits CD226 pathway-activated luminescence. The addition of anti-TIGIT antibody blocks the TIGIT/CD155 interaction, thereby re-establishing CD226 pathway-activated luminescence, which 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 non-TIGIT-expressing Effector Cells, CD155 induces luminescence by activation of the CD226 pathway.

Assay Performance Data

Accuracy and Precision are critical to bioassays and the development of biologics. The TIGIT/CD155 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 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 potency series of 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.
