  • This kit is designed for the detection of binding between FCGR2B (CD32b) and human IgG Fc fragment using a homogeneous AlphaLISA assay (no wash steps). This assay can facilitate the design and development of antibody therapeutics by using competitive binding.

    Features:

    • No-wash steps, no separation steps
    • Ease-of-use: few addition steps, fast assay development
    • Broad range of affinities: detect strong or weak interactions, from pM to mM affinity
    • Distance: measure very large protein or antibody complexes – spanning up to 200 nm or more
    • High avidity: multiple binding sites on each bead enables use of nanomolar concentrations of antibodies or proteins, as well as use of low affinity binders

    The Fc-Gamma Receptors (FCGRs) are members of immunoglobulin superfamily and play a critical role in the function of therapeutic antibodies. FCGRs are divided into three classes Fc-Gamma Receptor 1 (CD64), FCGR1; Fc-Gamma Receptor 2 (CD32), FCGR2 and Fc-Gamma receptor 3 (CD16), FCGR3. FCGR2 is expressed as two distinct forms (FCGR2A and FCGR2B) encoded by two different highly homologous genes in a cell type specific manner.

    FCGR2 is a low/intermediate affinity receptor for polyvalent immune-complexed IgG. It is involved in phagocytosis, secretion of enzymes and inflammatory mediators, antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC). FCGR2A delivers an activating signal upon ligand binding. In contrast, FCGR2B delivers an inhibitory signal.

    The AlphaLISA detection of FCGR2B and IgG Fc fragment binding uses IgG Fc AlphaLISA Acceptor beads to capture the human FCGR2B and Streptavidin-coated Donor beads to capture the biotinylated human FCGR2B. Donor beads and Acceptor beads come into proximity through IgG Fc fragment binding to FCGR2B. Excitation of the Donor beads provokes the release of singlet oxygen that triggers a cascade of energy transfer reactions in the Acceptor beads, resulting in a sharp peak of light emission at 615 nm.
