Protein A/G Affinity

Print

Overview

Protein A and G chromatography media are commonly used in antibody purification due to the high binding affinity and specificity of Protein A or G with the Fc region of the antibody. Key attributes for these methods are simplicity, purity, and yield. Purification can be completed quickly on any chromatography system, using basic gravity fed columns to more sophisticated HPLC systems. This section provides an overview of Protein A and G chromatography with general considerations

General Considerations for Affinity Purification

Immobilized Protein A and G from Staphylococcus aureus have been used for many years to purify antibodies from a variety of species (Hjelm et al. 1972). The high selectivity and stability of protein A and G have made them a popular choice for the purification of antibodies from a wide range of sample sources, including serum, ascitic fluid, and hybridoma cell culture supernatants. Mammalian antibodies are categorized into five major classes: IgA, IgD, IgE, IgG, and IgM. IgG is the predominant class of antibody in serum and is generated in large amounts during the secondary immune response. The IgG class of antibody is further divided into subclasses that vary depending upon the species and the properties of the heavy chain component. There are four subclasses of IgG in humans (IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, IgG4) and in mice (IgG1, IgG2a, IgG2b, IgG3). The affinity of protein A for IgG varies considerably between species and IgG subtypes and has been extensively characterized (Duhamel et al. 1979, Schwartz 1990). In humans, protein A binds with high affinity to IgG1, IgG2, and IgG4, but poorly to IgG3. Among the four IgG subtypes in mice, protein A has the weakest affinity for IgG1 while protein G has affinity for all four IgG subclasses. Bio-Rad offers a suite of products for Protein A chromatography: UNOsphere SUPrA™ media, and Affi-Gel® and Affi-Prep® protein A media.

Protein A and G Binding and Elution

The binding of antibodies to protein A is mediated, at neutral or alkaline pH values, through hydrophobic interactions involving a highly conserved histidine residue located in the protein A binding site of IgG. The elution of IgG from immobilized protein A is commonly achieved by lowering the pH using an acidic buffer. Protein A-purified antibodies are then typically neutralized with a base, dialyzed against a neutral buffer, or desalted using a gel-filtration column to avoid acid-mediated hydrolysis and denaturation.

Protein G exhibits a higher binding affinity than Protein A. It binds optimally at acidic pH and, due to its higher binding affinity, requires harsher elution conditions, pH 3.0 or lower, which is inherently detrimental to the activity of the purified antibody. These effects can be minimized, though not entirely eliminated, through rapid neutralization of the collected fractions. The strength of the Protein G/IgG interaction can also result in IgG carry over. To avoid cross contamination, Protein G columns should be specific to the antibody being purified. Due to retained IgG, Protein G has a shorter column life due to the loss in binding capacity after a few purifications. (P. Gagnon, ISBN 0-9653515-9-9).
