Session 10 Lecture Notes 1. Why engineer antibodies? The authors discuss this a bit – what do you think? Implications for cancer biology. What are the limitations the authors identify with previous display methods that make their system attractive? Expression bias in e.coli – phage display requires soluble expression of a protein for incorporation as a fusion with a phage coat protein – problem for disulfide-bond containing proteins. Phage display may also select for alternative properties of enzymes including reduced host toxicity or increased phage infectivity. Major advantage for cell-based methods is the total number of surface fusions – as many as thousands and can be screened by FACS – a very fast method. One problem, steric interference of the cell wall glycans may prevent substrate binding. 2.
