Diverse epitopes are accessed by presenting gp120 to the library in different forms, such as sequential masking of epitopes with existing MAbs or sCD4 prior to selection or by selection on peptides. Fabs identified by these methods have specificities associated with epitopes presented poorly on native multimeric envelope. PubMed ID: 9126846. Show all entries for this paper.

Four of five anti-V3 MAbs were slightly cross-reactive within clade B, but not very reactive outside clade B. Two discontinuous CD4 binding site Mabs appear to be pan-reactive. Anti-V2 MAbs were only sporadically reactive inside and outside of clade B. PubMed ID: 7525988. Show all entries for this paper.

Editor, J. D. Capra. An excellent review of the potential for antiviral immune therapy using anti-HIV human monoclonal antibodies, emphasizing phage display library technology, and application to HIV. Fabs to gp120 and gp41 are summarized. The methodology of selection for enhanced affinity is discussed, and affinity shown to be related to neutralization. Fabs expressed in phage display libraries were generally converted to IgG molecules only if they show neutralization potential in vitro, and this conversion to an IgG enhances neutralizing potential for immunotherapeutics. The use of phage display libraries to assess vaccines is discussed. gp120, gp160 and gp140-oligomeric vaccines were compared as antigen for selection from phage display libraries. Despite the fact that CD4BS, V3 loop, and CD4BS-V2 loop directed Abs were obtained in vaccinees, none of these vaccines efficiently selected neutralizing Abs from long-term asymptomatic donors in phage display libraries. The protein with the best potential using this method was found to be native oligomeric HIV-1 Envelope expressed on infected cells. The possibility of using 2G12, IgG1 b12 and 2F5 in combination for immunotherapy is discussed. PubMed ID: 9018871. Show all entries for this paper.

Parren1998 P. W. Parren, I. Mondor, D. Naniche, H. J. Ditzel, P. J. Klasse, D. R. Burton, and Q. J. Sattentau. Neutralization of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 by antibody to gp120 is determined primarily by occupancy of sites on the virion irrespective of epitope specificity. J. Virol., 72:3512-9, 1998. The authors propose that the occupancy of binding sites on HIV-1 virions is the major factor in determining neutralization, irrespective of epitope specificity. Neutralization was assayed T-cell-line-adapted HIV-1 isolates. Binding of Fabs to monomeric rgp120 was not correlated with binding to functional oligomeric gp120 or neutralization, while binding to functional oligomeric gp120 was highly correlated with neutralization. The ratios of oligomer binding/neutralization were similar for antibodies to different neutralization epitopes, with a few exceptions. PubMed ID: 9557629. Show all entries for this paper.

CD4-Induced Interaction of Primary HIV-1 gp120 Glycoproteins with the Chemokine Receptor CCR-5. Nature, 384:179-183, 1996. Results suggest that HIV-1 attachment to CD4 creates a high-affinity binding site for CCR-5, leading to membrane fusion and virus entry. CD4-induced or V3 neutralizing MAbs block the interaction of gp120-CD4 complexes with CCR-5. PubMed ID: 8906795. Show all entries for this paper.
