Recombinant Human PD‑1 Fc Chimera Protein SEC-MALS.

Recombinant human PD-1/Fc (Catalog # 1086-PD) has a molecular weight (MW) of 125.1 kDa as analyzed by SEC-MALS, suggesting that this protein is a homodimer.  MW may differ from predicted MW due to post-translational modifications (PTMs) present (i.e. Glycosylation).

Background: PD-1

PD-1 (Programmed Death-1 receptor), also known as CD279, is a receptor expressed on T cells responsible for modulating T cell activation. Like CTLA-4, PD-1 is classified as an immune checkpoint inhibitory receptor. When PD-1 protein binds to PD-L1, it initiates a negative signaling cascade inhibiting activation of T cells. The cytoplasmic tail contains two tyrosine residues that form the immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif (ITIM) and immunoreceptor tyrosine-based switch motif (ITSM) that are important for mediating PD-1 signaling. Normally, PD-1 helps keep T cells from attacking other cells in the body. However, many cancers take advantage of this by expressing high amounts of PD-L1 allowing cancer cells to evade the body's own immune response. Blocking the PD-1:PD-L1 interaction has proven successful in treating many different cancer types.

PD-1 protein is type I transmembrane receptor belonging to the CD28 family of immune regulatory receptors (1). Other members of this family include CD28, CTLA-4, ICOS, and BTLA (2-5). Mature human PD-1 consists of an extracellular region (ECD) with one immunoglobulin-like V‑type domain, a transmembrane domain, and a cytoplasmic region. The mature ECD of human PD-1 shares 61% amino acid sequence identity with mouse PD-1 ECD. PD-1 protein acts as a monomeric receptor and interacts in a 1:1 stoichiometric ratio with its ligands PD-L1 (B7-H1) and PD-L2 (B7-DC) (6, 7). PD‑1 is expressed on activated T cells, B cells, monocytes, and dendritic cells while PD-L1 expression is constitutive on the same cells and also on nonhematopoietic cells such as lung endothelial cells and hepatocytes (8, 9). Ligation of PD-L1 with PD-1 induces co-inhibitory signals on T cells promoting their apoptosis, anergy, and functional exhaustion (10). Thus, the PD-1:PD-L1 interaction is a key regulator of the threshold of immune response and peripheral immune tolerance (11).
