Of the 12 significant antigens, 9 have not been previously associated with BCa autoantibodies. added to the base model, including age, BMI, race and current smoking status, the assay had the following diagnostic capabilities: c-stat (95% CI), 0.82 (0.78 to 0.86); sensitivity, 73%; specificity, 76%; and PLR (95% CI), 3.04 (2.34 to 3.94). The model was calibrated across risk deciles (Hosmer-Lemeshow, p = 0.13) and performed well in specific subtypes of BCa including estrogen receptor positive, HER-2 positive, invasive, and tumor sizes 1 cm. and were SKLB610 custom cloned into pSecTag2-rFc using the SfiI and KpnI restriction sites (Genscript, Piscataway, NJ). and were custom cloned into pSecTag2-rFc using the KpnI and BamHI restriction sites. and were custom cloned into pSecTag2-rFc using the SfiI and BamHI restriction sites. and were cloned into pFUSE-IgK-rFc using the SfiI and XhoI restriction sites. was cloned into pFUSE-IgK-rFc using the BamHI and SacII restriction sites. was cloned into pFUSE-IgK-rFc using the EcoRI and XhoI restriction sites. Table 1 MAPcL Candidates for Generation of rFc Fusion Proteins was amplified via PCR using primers 5-CCCAAGCTTGCAGCACCCAAGTGTGCACCGGCAC-3 and 5-GTGCTCGAGTCACGTC-AGAGGGCTGGCTCTCTGCTCG-3. The product was digested with HindIII and XhoI and cloned IMPG1 antibody directionally into the pET-28a expression vector. Cell Culture 293T and SKBR3 cell lines were cultured in DMEM with 10% FBS. Cultures were maintained at 37C with 5% CO2 in a humidified incubator. All cell lines were authenticated and tested negatively for mycoplasma. Protein Production The MAPcL-rFc fusion proteins were produced in 293T cells. Briefly, 293T cells were transfected using Effectene (Qiagen, Valencia, CA) according to manufacturers specifications. During transfection, the cells were cultured in DMEM with 2% FBS. Supernatants containing the secreted fusion proteins were harvested, centrifuged to clear cell debris and supplemented with 0.1% sodium azide. His-HER-2 was produced in BL21 (Invitrogen, Carlsbad, CA) and purified using IMAC affinity chromatography. Sandwich ELISA Microtiter SKLB610 plates (Nalge Nunc, Rochester, NY) were coated overnight with 2 @@@g/ml goat anti-rabbit Fc (Jackson Immunoresearch, West Grove, PA) diluted with phosphate buffered saline. The supernatants containing the rFc fusion SKLB610 proteins were diluted 1:3 serially in standard blocking buffer (0.5% bovine serum albumin and 0.1% sodium azide in phosphate buffered saline). Plates were washed once, and the serially diluted supernatants were transferred to the microtiter plates. Rabbit IgG of known concentration was diluted similarly and added to one row of the microtiter plate in order to quantify the amount of fusion protein present in the culture media. After incubating for two hours, plates were washed twice and 50 l of HRP-conjugated goat anti-rabbit IgG (Jackson Immunoresearch, West Grove, PA) diluted 1:3000 in standard blocking buffer with 0.05% Tween 20 added. After a 2-hour incubation, plates were washed 4 times and developed with 100 l/well of TMB substrate (Pierce, Rockford, IL). The development reaction was stopped after five minutes with 50 l/well of 2N H2SO4, and the absorbance was measured at 450 nm to determine the concentration. The absorbance at 690 nm was subtracted to remove background signal. Antibody Recognition of Conformational Versus Denatured HER-2 Protein For the conformational HER-2 assay, microtiter plates were coated with 2 g/ml goat anti-rabbit Fc (Jackson Immunoresearch, West Grove, PA) in PBS overnight. HER-2-ECD-rFc was then added to each well, 100 l/well. For denatured HER-2, microtiter plates were coated with 2 g/ml His-HER-2-ECD in PBS overnight. Three HER-2 antibodies were used in the assay: anti-HER-2 3F27 (US Biological, Swampscott, MA), anti-HER-2 3F32 (US Biological, Swampscott, MA) and Herceptin (Genentech, South San Francisco, CA). Each antibody was diluted to 1 1 g/ml in standard blocking buffer with 0.05% Tween 20. The antibodies were then serially diluted. After washing once, 50 l/well of the serially diluted antibodies was added to the plates and incubated for 2 hours at room temperature. The plates were washed three times, SKLB610 and species appropriate HRP-conjugated secondary antibodies were added at a 1:3000 dilution. Plates were washed four times and developed with 100 l/well TMB substrate for five minutes. Development was stopped with 50 l/well 2N H2SO4. Absorbance was measured at SKLB610 450 nm, and the 690 nm absorbance was subtracted to account for background. The same antibodies were used to stain HER-2 in SKBR3 BCa cells via flow cytometry. SKBR3 cells were detached from dish using Cell Dissociation.
