Disclosed are processes for producing a variant polypeptide (e.g. antibodies) having modified binding characteristics for human Fc gamma receptor IIA (CD32A) leading to increased inhibition of proinflammatory mediators while retaining binding to a target antigen via its Fv portion, which processes comprise altering the polypeptides by substitution of at least two amino acid residues at EU position 325, 326 or 328 of a human IgG CH2 region for a sequence selected from SAAF, SKAF, NAAF and NKAF. Also disclosed are molecules, particularly polypeptides, more particularly immunoglobulins (e.g. antibodies) that include a variant CDR3 region, wherein the variant CDR3 region includes at least one amino acid modified relative to a wild-type CDR3 region. The polypeptides that can be generated according to the methods of the invention are highly variable, and they can include antibodies and fusion proteins that contain an Fc region or a biologically active portion thereof.


Patent
NovImmune | Date: 2013-11-12

This invention provides fully human monoclonal antibodies that recognize IL-17F and/or the heterodimeric IL-17A/IL-17F complex, but do not recognize IL-17A. The invention further provides methods of using such monoclonal antibodies as a therapeutic, diagnostic, and prophylactic.


The invention provides compositions and methods for generating libraries of DNA sequences encoding homologous polypeptides, and uses of the libraries to identify naturally diversified polypeptide variants. The invention also provides compositions and methods for generating collections of synthetic antibody fragments in which one or several complementary determining regions (CDR) are replaced by a collection of the corresponding CDR captured from a natural source. The invention further provides compositions and methods for diversifying a portion of a polypeptide by inserting a diversified sequence of synthetic or natural origin without the need for modification of the original polypeptide coding sequence.


This invention provides fully human monoclonal antibodies that recognize IL-17F, the IL-17F homodimer, IL-17A, the IL-17A homodimer, and/or the heterodimeric IL-17A/IL-17F protein complex. The invention further provides methods of using such monoclonal antibodies as a therapeutic, diagnostic, and prophylactic.
