Poly-gamma-D-glutamic acid from Bacillus licheniformis is a water-soluble, nontoxic, nonimmunogenic exopolymer. Using synthetic linkers, the alpha-carboxylate side chains of PGA were conjugated to an exposed thiol side chain of an antibody F(ab') fragment, Mc109F4. Analysis of the PGA-Mc109F4 conjugate by gel filtration HPLC revealed a mixture of multivalent conjugates. The PGA-Mc109F4 conjugate retained biological activity, but showed a lower binding affinity to target BCL3B3 cells than free Mc109F4 F(ab')2 by flow cytometry, and a lower efficacy for BCL3B3 growth inhibition than free Mc109F4 F(ab')(2). PGA was also conjugated with the free amino group of glycopeptide antibiotic vancomycin. The PGA-vancomycin conjugate showed slightly lower antibacterial activity than free vancomycin versus susceptible Bacillus subtilis, but slightly higher activity versus intrinsically resistant Leuconostoc mesenteroides.
