Polyethylene glycol（PEG）is a family of long chain polymers attached to a glycerine backbone. It is a nonionic, nontoxic, biocompatible, strongly hydrophilic polymer, which has a large exclusion volume in aqueous solution (1). The covalent attachment of PEG is now commonly used to modify a variety of proteins and drugs (2,3). The modification of a biopharmaceutical with polyethylene glycol (PEG) increases its hydrodynamic radius, reduces immunogenicity and proteolytic cleavage. Other benefits include decelerated renal excretion, improved stability towards proteolysis and increased solubility of the biopharmaceutical in aqueous solutions (4). As examples, PEG-adenosine deaminase (Adagen) is used for the treatment of severe combined immunodeficiency syndrome, PEGasparaginase (Oncaspar) is used for the treatment acute lymphoblastic leukemia, PEGinterferon α2a (Pegasys) is used for the treatment Hepatitis C, Branched PEGanti-VEGF aptamer (Pegaptanib, Macugen) is used for the treatment Macular degeneration(age-related) (5). An Anti-PEG antibody can be used to monitor a drugs pharmacokinetics, including distribution, metabolism and excretion. In addition, it can be used for the quality control of pegylated molecules in ELISA, WB and flow cytometery.

|A. ELISA assay using 5ug/mL Anti-AFP RabMAb (#1791-1) as the capture antibody and 0.5 ug/mL Anti-PEG-47-Biotin RabMAb (cat. # 2137-1) as the detection antibody. HRP-avidin (1:3000) used for anti-PEG-47 detection. This ELISA assay could detect YCA1017 peptide-PEG antigen at a concentration as low as 0.9 ng/mL.||B. Sandwich ELISA assay using 5ug/mL Anti-GCSF as the capture antibody and 0.5 ug/mL Anti-PEG-47-Biotin RabMAb (cat. # 2137-1) as the detection antibody. HRP-avidin (1:3000) used for anti-PEG-47 detection. This ELISA assay could detect GCSF-PEG antigen at a concentration as low as 0.9 ng/mL.||C. Direct ELISA assay using 63 ng/mL of antigen (GCSF-PEG) to coat the plate. HRP-avidin (1:3000) was used for the detection of varying amounts of Anit-PEG-47-Biotin (cat. # 2137-1).|
|D. Immunoblot of different antigen-PEG preparations. Western Blot images using Anti-PEG 47-Biotin (cat. # 2137-1) to detect BSA-PEG. Lane 1: 31.25 ng/mL; lane 2: 15.6 ng/mL; lane 3: 7.8 ng/mL.|
KLH-PEG with terminal methoxy group was used as an immunogen. This antibody recognizes the terminal methoxy group of the PEG molecule. Anti-PEG-47-Biotin is prepared by the biotinylation of the antibody via primary amines.
