Immunopharmacology Ligand
Comment: Blisibimod is a peptibody fusion containing four BAFF binding domains fused to a human Fc domain. By sequestering circulating BAFF ligand, it acts as a functional antagonist of BAFF interaction with the TACI receptor on B cells.
Peptide sequences and structural information for this peptide are available from its IMGT/mAb-DB entry. The peptide sequence for blisibimod is claimed in Amgen's patent WO2002092620 [5].
