Open-sandwich enzyme immunoassay for one-step noncompetitive detection of corticosteroid 11-deoxycortisol.

A noncompetitive immunoassay has the potential for improved sensitivity and working range compared with corresponding competitive assays. However, monovalent antigens with less than 1000 in molecular weight are not susceptible to sandwich assays due to their small size. As a noncompetitive immunoassay that can be performed with a clone of an antibody, an open-sandwich immunoassay (OS-IA) based on the antigen-dependent stabilization of the antibody variable region (V(H) + V(L)) was applied to the quantification of 11-deoxycortisol (11-DC; M(r) 346.5), a corticosteroid serving as a diagnostic index for pituitary-adrenal function, as a model target hapten. By one step OS-IA detection of enzyme-labeled V(H) fragment bound to immobilized V(L) in the presence of sample in microplate wells, 11-DC was measured with a femtomolar detection limit and the working range was wider than that with corresponding competitive assay. In addition, the selectivity against analogues was found almost identical to that of conventional assays. The effect of the mutagenesis of a V(H) residue at the V(H)/V(L) interface to reduce background signal was also shown, implying the wider application of OS-IA in small molecule analyses.

Functional glucocorticoid receptor gene variants do not underlie the high variability of 17-hydroxyprogesterone screening values in healthy newborns.

17-Hydroxyprogesterone (17-OHP) screening for classical congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) is part of many newborn screening programs worldwide. Cut-off values are relatively high, and screening sensitivity does not reach 100%. Recently, the glucocorticoid receptor (GR) N363S-variant has been linked to relatively low degree of virilization and comparatively lower 17-OHP serum concentrations in clinically diagnosed female CAH patients. We sought to determine whether functional GR gene variants, either increasing (N363S, BclI) or decreasing GR sensitivity (R23K), underlie the variable 17-OHP screening levels in healthy newborns.

Analyzing the functional and structural consequences of two point mutations (P94L and A368D) in the CYP11B1 gene causing congenital adrenal hyperplasia resulting from 11-hydroxylase deficiency.

Congenital adrenal hyperplasia is a group of autosomal recessive inherited disorders of steroidogenesis. The deficiency of steroid 11-hydroxylase (CYP11B1) resulting from mutations in the CYP11B1 gene is the second most frequent cause.

Immunoenzymometric assay for a small molecule,11-deoxycortisol, with attomole-range sensitivity employing an scFv-enzyme fusion protein and anti-idiotype antibodies.

To overcome the sensitivity limit in immunoassays for small molecules (haptens), we established a noncompetitive immunoenzymometric assay (IEMA) format that can detect attomole-range hapten molecules. We selected 11-deoxycortisol (11-DC; Mr 346.5), a corticosteroid serving a diagnostic index for pituitary-adrenal function, as a model target hapten. A fusion of a single-chain Fv fragment (scFv) specific for 11-DC and alkaline phosphatase (ALP) was generated for use as an enzyme-labeled antibody, instead of the conventional chemically linked enzyme-antibody conjugates. After binding reaction of 11-DC and fixed amounts of the fusion protein (scFv-ALP), the unbound fusion protein was removed by incubation with a mouse beta-type anti-idiotype antibody recognizing the scFv paratope. These complexes were captured by magnetic separation using anti-mouse IgG antibody-coated magnetic beads. Following magnetic sedimentation of the beads, immune complexes of scFv-ALP and 11-DC remained in the supernatant were further purified by capture on microtiter plates with immobilized alpha-type anti-idiotype antibody. As measured fluorometrically, ALP activity from bound immune complexes on the plates increased with increasing 11-DC, which is characteristic of a noncompetitive relationship. This IEMA afforded an extremely low detection limit (20 amol/assay), a very wide measurable range, and practical specificity. The plasma 11-DC levels determined for healthy subjects were validated as reliable.

Dissociation-independent selection of high-affinity anti-hapten phage antibodies using cleavable biotin-conjugated haptens.

The engineering of hapten-specific antibodies with affinity constant higher (K(a) values >10(10)M(-1)) than those of conventional antibodies promises hapten immunoassays exhibiting sub-femtomole range sensitivity, based on the conventional competitive assay principle. Here we report a simple method to select phage particles displaying anti-hapten antibody fragments with exceptionally high affinity. 11-Deoxycortisol (11-DC), selected as a model target hapten, was covalently conjugated to biotin via a spacer that included a reductively cleavable disulfide bond. Phage particles displaying high-affinity, single-chain Fv fragments (scFvs) specific for 11-DC (K(a)1.3 x 10(10)M(-1)) were incubated with the "cleavable biotin"-conjugated 11-DC, and the resulting complexes was captured on immobilized NeutrAvidin. Mild reductive conditions that did not decrease phage infectivity easily cleaved the disulfide bond, allowing the recovery of target phage particles; this process is fully independent of the dissociation of the antigen-antibody interaction. Five serial rounds of selection enabled the isolation and enrichment of the anti-11-DC phage (specific phage ratio >90%) from among a 100,000-fold excess of nonspecific phage particles. This method will be applicable for selection of extra-high-affinity phage antibodies against a wide variety of haptens.

Monoclonal anti-idiotype antibodies recognizing the variable region of a high-affinity antibody against 11-deoxycortisol. Production, characterization and application to a sensitive noncompetitive immunoassay.

Anti-idiotype antibodies recognizing the variable regions of a particular anti-hapten antibody are valuable tools, which can be used in sensitive hapten immunoassays based on a noncompetitive format. Here, we describe the production and characterization of monoclonal anti-idiotype antibodies against idiotopes on the variable regions of an antibody showing high affinity and specificity to 11-deoxycortisol (11-DC). 11-DC is the biosynthetic precursor of cortisol and a diagnostic index for the assessment of pituitary-adrenal function. BALB/c or A/J mice were repeatedly immunized with the anti-11-DC antibody conjugated with keyhole limpet hemocyanin and their spleen cells were then fused with P3/NS1/1-Ag4-1 myeloma cells. Seven kinds of anti-idiotype antibodies were generated, one of which was a beta-type antibody recognizing the paratope and others which were alpha-type antibodies recognizing the framework region. A noncompetitive ELISA based on idiotype-anti-idiotype reactions was established using one of these alpha-type antibodies in combination with the beta-type antibody and with the anti-11-DC antibody. This noncompetitive assay system provided improved sensitivity (detection limit: 1.0 pg=2.9 fmol), which is approximately 10 times higher than the corresponding competitive enzyme immunoassay, and offered a practical specificity for clinical use. Appropriate serum 11-DC levels were obtained for normal subjects [0.16+/-0.09 (S.D.) microg/l (n=6), ranging from 0.086 to 0.316 microg/l] using the present assay system.

Single-chain Fv fragments derived from an anti-11-deoxycortisol antibody. Affinity, specificity, and idiotype analysis.

Single-chain Fv fragments (scFvs) against a corticosteroid, 11-deoxycortisol (11-DC), have been generated as a template antibody fragment from which a comprehensive mutated antibody library containing various anti-steroid antibodies could be constructed. The cDNAs encoding variable heavy (V(H)) and light (V(L)) domains of a mouse anti-11-DC antibody (CET-M8), were amplified by RT-PCR, combined via a common linker to construct the sequence of 5'-V(H)-(Gly(4)Ser)(3)-V(L)-3', and cloned into a phagemid vector, pEXmide 5. The phage clones exhibiting binding activity to 11-DC were isolated after single panning against a hapten-immobilizing immunotube. The scFv gene in one of these clones was reamplified to introduce the ochre codons, and then expressed in the bacterial periplasm as the soluble antibody fragment. Two different scFvs (#6 and #12) were cloned, whose binding characteristics were examined by a radioimmunoassay using a tritium-labeled 11-DC. Both of them showed high affinity (K(a)=1.3x10(10)M(-1)) and practical specificity (cross-reactivity: cortisol, <0.2%; cortisone, <0.3%) to 11-DC, and furthermore, strong reactivity with an anti-idiotype antibody which recognizes the paratope of CET-M8. These results suggest that the present scFvs retain the three-dimensional structure of the paratope of the original monoclonal antibody.

A new specific and sensitive time resolved-fluoroimmunoassay of 11-deoxycortisol in serum.

A biotinylated 11-deoxycortisol tracer was synthesized from 11-deoxycortisol-3-carboxymethyloxime and the conjugate obtained by acylation of biotinylaminopropylammonium trifluoroacetate. This biotinylated tracer was used to develop an 11-deoxycortisol time-resolved-fluoroimmunoassay (TR-FIA). The tracer was quantified after adding streptavidine-Europium. A TR-FIA sensitive standard curve, with displacement of 20, 50, and 80% of tracer was obtained with 12.4, 70.7, and 512.8 pg of 11-deoxycortisol, respectively. After extraction followed by Celite chromatography, purified serum samples were simultaneously assayed by RIA and TR-FIA. The results obtained by the two methods were practically identical, however, this new specific, non-isotopic 11-deoxycortisol assay has the advantage of being more sensitive than RIA, thus well-suited to accurate measurement in endocrinological studies, particularly when serum 11-deoxycortisol levels in patients are just above the highest normal values. Moreover, this non-isotopic assay is cheaper than RIA.

Plasma 21-deoxycortisol: comparison of a time-resolved fluoroimmunoassay using a biotinylated tracer with a radioimmunossay using (125)iodine.

Plasma 21-deoxycortisol (21DF) is an excellent marker of 21-hydroxylase deficiency. Currently, it is the only marker able to detect heterozygous carriers with 21-hydroxylase deficiency after ACTH stimulation. We have already developed radioimmunoassays for 21DF using first tritiated, then 125I-21DF which had a ten-fold higher sensitivity. However, because the lifespan of 125I-21DF is short, the tracer needs to be reprepared every two months and this multiplies the risk of contamination by radioactive 125I vapours. We therefore developed a non-isotopic 21DF assay that uses a 21DF-biotin conjugate with a original bridge, a diaminopropyl arm, linking the steroid to biotin. The 21DF-biotin conjugate was measured by time-resolved fluorescence after adding streptavidin-europium to the microtitration wells. The analytical qualities of this assay were very similar to those of the radioimmunoassay using 125I-21DF as tracer. The results obtained by the two methods, in either normal subjects or patients with 21-hydroxylase deficiency, were virtually the same.
