Annotated peptide sequences for this antibody are available from its IMGT/mAb-DB record.
Protein sequence analysis reveals that gantenerumab is likely to be clone #7.9.H7 in patent US7794719 [1].
Bioactivity Comments
In vitro gantenerumab is able to effect clearance of Aβ from post-mortem human Alzheimer's diseased brain slices, and binds to Aβ plaques in the brains of AD model mice following systemic delivery [2].
