Abstract

A panel of human anti-anthrax protective antigen IgG1 monoclonal antibodies were evaluated to determine the mechanism of toxin neutralization. AVP-22G12, AVP-1C6 and AVP-21D9 bound to the protective antigen with picomolar affinities to distinct non-overlapping linear epitopes. Two of the antibodies neutralized the anthrax toxin by completely inhibiting the protective antigen oligomer assembly process in vitro.
