Abstract 

Human cytotoxic T-lymphocyte antigen 4-immunoglobulin (hCTLA4Ig) is an immunosuppressive therapeutic, and recently produced rice cell-derived hCTLA4Ig (hCTLA4IgP) reportedly exhibits in vitro immunosuppressive activities equivalent to those of Chinese hamster ovary cell-derived hCTLA4Ig (hCTLA4IgM). However, limitations of hCTLA4IgP include shortened in vivo half-life as well as the presence of nonhuman N-glycans containing (β1-2)-xylose and α1,3-fucose, which cause immunogenic reactions in humans. In the present study, human β1,4-galactose-extended hCTLA4IgP (hCTLA4IgP-Gal) was expressed through the coexpression of human β1,4-galactosyltransferase (hGalT) and hCTLA4Ig in an attempt to overcome these unfavorable effects. The results indicated that both encoding hGalT and hCTLA4Ig were successfully coexpressed, and the analysis of N-glycan and its relative abundance in purified hCTLA4IgP-Gal indicated that not only were the two glycans containing (β1-4)-galactose newly extended, but also glycans containing both β1,2-xylose and α1,3-fucose were markedly reduced and high-mannose-type glycans were increased compared to those of hCTLA4IgP, respectively. Unlike hCTLA4IgP, hCTLA4IgP-Gal was effective as an acceptor via (β1-4)-galactose for in vitro sialylation. Additionally, the serum half-life of intravenously injected hCTLA4IgP-Gal in Sprague-Dawley rats was 1.9 times longer than that of hCTLA4IgP, and the clearance pattern of hCTLA4IgP-Gal was close to that for hCTLA4IgM. These results indicate that the coexpression with hGalT and hCTLA4IgP is useful for both reducing glycan immunogens and increasing in vivo stability. This is the first report of hCTLA4Ig as an effective therapeutics candidate in glycoengineered rice cells.
