Controlled Fab installation onto polymeric micelle nanoparticles for tuned Bioactivity

A research paper was published at Science and Technology of Advanced Materials by the joint efforts of SynChem scientists with our partner. The research results show that the newly developed newly developed nanoparticle tuned by modification of click chemistry. a new method that enables conjugation of Fabs onto a micelle surface in a controlled manner with up to quantitative conversion of nanoparticle reactive groups. Variation of (i) PEG spacer length in a hetero-functionalized cross-linker and (ii) Fab/polymer feed ratios resulted in production of nanoparticles with a range of Fab densities on the surface up to the theoretical maximum value. The biological impact of variable Fab density was evaluated in vitro with respect to cell uptake and cytotoxicity of a drug-loaded (SN38) targeted polymeric micelle bearing anti-EphA2 Fabs. Fab conjugation increased cell uptake and potency compared with non-targeted micelles, although a Fab density of 60% resulted in decreased uptake and potency of the targeted micelles.
