Bioactivity Comments
The inhibitory effects gevokizumab of arise from a classic allosteric ternary complex mechanism whereby the antibody binds to the orthosteric agonist IL-1β, modulating the interaction with the orthosteric site on the receptor [3,6].
Sequence analysis of the peptide sequence of gevokizumab indicate a match for sequence ID 15 from patent US7531166 [4], suggesting that gevokizumab derives from clone AB7. Data for clone AB7 is included in the interaction table below.
