Absolute Characterization of Glycoproteins and their Interactions with Proteins and Antibodies by Light Scattering

Join us for a webinar on September 6 at 8:00 AM PDT | 11:00 AM EDT | 17:00 CEST

Glycoproteins

Glycoproteins (GPs) are primary targets of neutralizing and therapeutic antibodies for a large variety of indications, including epilepsy and many types of viruses. Many non-IgG therapeutic proteins are themselves GPs. Hence, the characterization of GPs and potential degradants, as well as their interactions with therapeutic or target proteins, is essential for understanding GP targets and developing effective therapeutics. This webinar presents two first-principles techniques for carrying out these analyses in solution: SEC-MALS-UV-RI and CG-MALS.

Unlike common unmodified proteins that are globular in conformation and highly hydrophilic in surface chemistry, GPs cannot be characterized accurately by standard analytical size-exclusion chromatography (SEC). Coupling SEC to multi-angle light scattering (MALS) and differential refractive index (dRI) detection results in a powerful SEC-MALS-UV-RI triple-detection system that can determine the molar mass of the protein and total glycan mass in order to characterize degradants and complexes. Composition-gradient multi-angle light scattering (CG-MALS) utilizes the same detectors, with a stop-flow system to quantify the absolute stoichiometry and binding affinity of reversible association between GPs and antibodies or solubilized target proteins.

Characterization of Polymeric Excipients with Size Exclusion Chromatography and Light Scattering

Join us for a webinar on September 21 at 8:00 AM PDT | 11:00 AM EDT | 17:00 CEST

Polymeric and other content can contribute up to 90% of the total mass in a pharmaceutical product, where excipients play a critical role in the drug’s performance. In just one example of the importance of excipient properties for therapeutic effect, the molar mass and degree of branching in polymeric excipients directly impact the rate of drug release.
In this webinar we show how conventional characterization techniques including size exclusion chromatography (SEC) and bulk viscosity measurements may fall short. The addition of light scattering analysis provides complete characterization of molar mass, viscosity, branching, conformation, conjugation, and size of excipients and other polymers.
