|Title:||Protein L-agarose for adsorption of autoantibodies: A potential tool for extracorporeal treatment|
|Abstract:||This work investigated the adsorption of autoantibodies such as anti-SS-A/Ro, anti-SS-B/La, anti-Sm, and anti-dsDNA on protein L-agarose gel. In order to determine better conditions for IgG adsorption on this matrix, some buffer systems were tested. Adsorption data were analyzed using the Langmuir and Langmuir-Freundlich isotherm models. The experimental isotherms were best described by the Langmuir-Freundlich model, which indicated negative and positive cooperativities for binding in the presence of PBS and HEPES buffers, respectively. The K-d values for phosphate buffered saline solution (PBS) and hydroxyethylpiperazine ethanesulfonic acid (HEPES) were 2.8 x 10(-7) M and 3.2 x 10(-7) M, respectively, which indicate a high affinity between IgG and the immobilized protein L. The amount of protein adsorbed per amount of protein loaded was high for anti-Sm (44%) and anti-dsDNA (46%), but low for anti-SS-B/La (9%). The amount of albumin adsorbed was lower than 0.06 mg/mL, which may remove the need for a plasma replacement solution in clinical apheresis.|
