Human IgG1 λ
This non-therapeutic biosimilar antibody uses the same variable region sequence as the therapeutic antibody Briakinumab. Briakinumab recognizes both human IL12 and IL23 via IL-12/23p40.
IL-12 is produced by dendritic cells, macrophages, neutrophils, and human B-lymphoblastoid cells. IL-23 is mainly secreted by activated dendritic cells, macrophages or monocytes.
Briakinumab is a human monoclonal antibody targets the p40 subunit shared by interleukins 12 and 23. IL-12 associates with IL-23α to form the heterodimeric cytokine IL-23. IL-23 is associated with various autoimmune inflammatory diseases, and is particularly highly expressed in psoriasis skin lesions. In addition, IL-23 is suspected to play a role in tumorigenesis. Briakinumab binds to and neutralizes human IL-12 and IL-23 (via their shared p40 subunit) and is being investigated for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, and multiple sclerosis. Anti-Human IL 12/23 (Briakinumab) utilizes the same variable regions from the therapeutic antibody Briakinumab making it ideal for research projects.
