Amine/thiol-reactive chemistries are commonly used to conjugate antibodies to pharmaceuticals or nanoparticles. Yet, these conjugation strategies often result in unfavorable outcomes such as heterogeneous antibody display with hindered biological activity or aggregation due to multivalent interactions of the antibody and nanoparticles. Here, we report the application of a site-specific and enzymatically driven antibody conjugation strategy to functionalize virus-based nanoparticles (VNPs). Specifically, an azide-handle was introduced into the Fc region of a set of immunoglobulins using a two-step enzymatic reaction: (1) cleavage of -linked glycan in the Fc region by a glycosidase and (2) conjugation of a chemically reactive linker (containing an azide functional handle) using a microbial transglutaminase. Conjugation of the azide-functional antibodies to several VNPs was achieved by making use of strain-promoted azide-alkyne cycloaddition. We report the conjugation of three immunoglobulin (IgG) isotypes (human IgG from sera, anti-CD47 Rat IgG2a, κ, and Trastuzumab recombinant humanized IgG1, κ) to the plant virus cowpea mosaic virus (CPMV) and the lysine mutant of tobacco mosaic virus (TMVlys) as well as bacteriophage Qβ. Site-specific conjugation resulted in stable and functional antibody-VNP conjugates. In stark contrast, the use of heterobifunctional linkers targeting thiols and amines on the antibodies and VNPs, respectively, led to aggregation due to nonspecific and multivalent coupling between the antibodies and VNPs. We demonstrate that antibody-VNP conjugates were functional, and Trastuzumab-displaying VNPs targeted HER2-positive SKOV-3 human ovarian cancer cells. This bioconjugation strategy adds to the portfolio of methods that can be used for designing functional antibody-VNP conjugates.
