31. MAR 2020

Lecture Halle A3 Forum Biotech

11:30-12:00 h | Hall A3 A3.560/Forum Biotech

  • Dynamic Light Scattering, or DLS, of proteins can be challenging
  • DLS is a powerful tool for measuring protein size
  • The aim of this study is to demonstrate parameters that can be tweaked to improve measurement quality with monomeric and aggregated monoclonal antibodies.

Subjects: Pharma & Diagnostics | Laboratory Technology | Biotechnology & Life Sciences | Applications

Speaker: Dr. Daniel Seeman (Brookhaven Instruments)

Type: Lecture

Speech: English

DLS is a well know and powerful technique for the size determination of nanoparticles and proteins, its value has been demonstrated in innumerable publications. Proteins however, still represent a challenge by themselves.

Most native proteins are very small in hydrodynamic size, rarely surpassing the 5 – 10 nm, and many of them ranges below 1 nm. Size determination of such small particles is by itself difficult as diffusion coefficient, which is the basis for the calculation of hydrodynamic size, is typically very high thus requiring an advanced correlator with appropriately designed delays layout for determination of the autocorrelation function. Aggregates of natively small proteins however, can easily reach quite large sizes and complicate by this the already challenging measurement.

The Light Scattering signal created by a very low number of aggregates can easily surpass the signal by a large number of small native proteins in the sample. Interpretation of such situation however is crucial in order to fully understand the sample under investigation and return a quality index of it in terms of quality of the purification or of power of representation for further analysis as SAXS and SANS.

This principle is demonstrated with a pharmaceutically relevant protein: monoclonal antibody (or mAb) studied in both monomeric and aggregated states.
