The technical field to which the invention relates.

The present invention relates to mutant streptokinase and covalently modified forms. The present invention makes use of streptokinase and its related variants obtained by replacing, attaching, removing or creating structures by merging domains, modified PEG homogeneous, site-specific and particular way that allows their use as improved protein therapeutics.

The present invention relates to the covalent attachment of PEG to cysteine variants of streptokinase, it muteena, species or products merge with fibrin, when using reagents based on the derivatives of PEG, reacting with thiol groups. Can be also used different values pKaalpha-amino groups to conduct specific conjugation of the PEG at acidic pH with the aim of obtaining monopegylated variants of streptokinase or its Malinov.

The present invention relates also to identify various cysteine variants of streptokinase or its mutants, including covalent related options on the basis of structural and functional information (Wang et al., 1998). Structural comparison with other single-plasminogen activator, staphylokinase (SAK), the decree which provides for substantial similarity to the alpha-domain SC, despite the fact that both proteins do not possess significant homology sequences at the amino acid level (Rabijns et al., 1997). This indicates that the plasminogen activators from various sources maintain the same type of structural styling, even if they differ considerably in their polypeptide sequence. It can be expected that the evolutionary constraint retains structural integrity, because the bacterial activators of plasminogen are protein cofactors, therefore, they use a variety of contact points required for conformational activation of zymogen. This structural similarity further increases the scope of the present invention, since the methods used in this case, can be applied to bacterial activators of plasminogen other types or species, which are involved in the activation of plasminogen. Therefore, the "rules" here for the biologically active cysteine variants of streptokinase, will be used for the production of biologically active cysteine variants of various other forms of streptokinase. Conjugation of these cysteine variants PEG derivative that can react with cysteine leads to the same advantages of using derivatives in the present research the research Institute. Principles of site definition, which is cysteine, mainly based on the idea of selecting residues that fall either in a loop or spiral, or in the border area between structured and flexible areas. For determining the surface distance used by the program DSSP. The program DSSP (Kabsch et al., 1983) defines the secondary structure, geometric properties and the availability of proteins in relation to the solvent defined by the atomic coordinates in Protein Data Bank format. DSSP sets the accessibility of each residue in square angstroms. Surface accessibility of amino acid residues streptokinase was deciphered from the data on the crystal structure, high-resolution streptokinase in complex with microplasmin (Wang et al., 1998, PDB ID 1BML). For areas that were missed in this structure (175-181 and 252-262) in determining the surface distance using the crystal structure of the isolated beta-domains (Wang et al., 1999, PDB ID 1c4p).

Cysteine variants of streptokinase, it mutiny derived species and its covalently modified forms further chemically modified by the addition of reagents for sulfhydryl groups with subsequent empirical testing for significant biological activity, along with the acquisition of new properties, such as lower the Naya immunogenicity or reaction with anti-ck antibodies, reduced sensitivity to proteolysis, increased survival in vivo, etc. More specifically, the present invention relates to the production of engineered variants of streptokinase for the application for use in pharmaceutical compositions for the treatment of vascular diseases.

The level of technology

The formation of a thrombus (blood clot) in the blood vessels can cause blockage of blood vessels, leading to fatal consequences. The formation of the clot and its dissolution is a strictly controlled process of homeostasis. Any deviation from normal blood clotting leads to various clinical pathological condition, such as stroke, embolism of the lungs, deep vein thrombosis and acute myocardial infarction. Pathophysiological condition developing in breach of the blood clotting process, require nizamedinova clinical intervention. The most commonly practiced medical intervention consists in the introduction of thrombolytic agents (Collen et al., 1988; Collen, 1990; Francis and Mafder, 1991). The most commonly used thrombolytic agents include streptokinase SK (SK), urokinase (UK) and tissue plasminogen activator (TPA). Previously there have been numerous pharmacoeconomic evaluation of using different thrombolytics for a sharp correction is th myocardial infarction (Mucklow, 1995; Gillis and Goa, 1996). Banerjee et al., 2004, reviewed the clinical use of streptokinase and its application as the best choice of drug for treatment. With regard to clinical effectiveness, as streptokinase and TPA equally are good drugs, but due to the fact that streptokinase several orders of magnitude cheaper, and better in respect of the half-life in vivo, it is worldwide is the preferred thrombolytic (Sherry and Marder, 1991, Wu et al., 1998). In addition, the use of TRA somewhat more likely to cause a stroke, the most common side effects for both drugs. However, streptokinase, being a bacterial protein, is the nature of the antigenic and may cause clinical complications such as allergic reactions or bleeding. In addition, the half-life of circulating streptokinase (15-30 min) is not sufficient for effective thrombolite (Wu et al., 1998).

Despite all this recent thrombolytic therapy with fibrinolytic agents such as streptokinase (SK), tissue plasminogen activator (TPA) or urokinase (UK) completely changed the clinical application of various diseases of the circulatory system, for example, deep vein thrombosis, embolism blood vessels of the lungs and acute myocardial infarction. These agents exert their fibrinoliticeski the properties through the activation of plasminogen PG (PG) in circulation by cleavage of the labile peptide bonds between residues 561 and 562 PG. In the inactive zymogen becomes active, the serine protease, plasmin PN (PN), which then circulates in the system and acts on fibrin, destroying the latter with the formation of soluble degradation products. Here it should be mentioned that himself PN is not able to activate PG to MO; this reaction is catalyzed by highly specific proteases, such TRA, complex SK-plasminogen and UK, they all have extremely high specificity with respect to protein substrates, namely the ability to cleave the labile peptide bond in GHG highly specific way. However, unlike the UK and TPA, SK lacks proteolytic activity and activates GHG MO "indirectly", i.e. forming a first vysokoaffinnye equimolar complex with PG, known as an activator complex (reviewed Castellino, F. J., 1981). Then activator complex, acts as a protease, which cleaves other molecules of substrate PG to MO.

Despite the enormous benefits of therapeutic use of streptokinase and other bacterial thrombolytics has several disadvantages that limit the applicability of these polypeptide drugs. These disadvantages include their susceptibility to degradation by proteolytic enzymes, low half-life in the circulation, small storage period, fast in the maintenance of the kidneys and their ability to generate neutralizing antibodies. These shortcomings also sometimes inherent in many other polypeptide drugs are inherently different from the polypeptides of the person. This aspect is in General considered Roberts et al.; 2002. Have been made various attempts to address these shortcomings polypeptide drugs, for example, a change in amino acid sequence to reduce proteolysis or antigenicity, attaching polypeptides to domains globulin or albumin for longer half-life (Osborn et al., 2002).

These methods are of little use to solve problems and carry additional charges. The main breakthrough in this area is pegylation of proteins, providing the only solution to many problems. PEG (polyethylene glycol) is formed by polymerization of several repeating subunits of ethylene glycol, leading to linear or branched polymers PEG preplanned molecular masses. Being covalently conjugated with PEG, proteins or polypeptides exhibit improved pharmacokinetic or pharmacodynamic properties, such as increased water solubility, decrease renal clearance and often significant decrease of immunoreactivity (Moreadith et al., 2003, Doherty et al., 2005, Basu et al., 2006). Conjugation with PEG also makes the molecule less susceptible to proteolysis. Humanitarianassistance with the receptor or interaction with surface proteins of cells, due to the accession of the PEG, also contributes to the suppression of adverse immunological effects. Paglierani drugs are also more stable in a wide range of pH and temperature changes (Monfardini et al. 1995). The use of PEG approved by the FDA for therapeutic agents and shows that he practically has no toxicity and is excreted in unchanged form or through the kidneys, either together with the faeces. Useful properties of conjugation with PEG can be potentially reported IC in order to make it more effective and safe thrombolytic. Attempt paglierani IC using relatively nonspecific reaction of the chemical modifications described in the literature (Ms. Rajagopalan et al., 1985). Therapeutic applications of such modifications is strictly limited to the high anomalous ability of plasminogen activation. In addition, poorly controlled nature of the modification, which may be heterogeneous. The reason for this heterogeneity are chemical transformations used to modify the PEG, which is not address specific modification site. Therefore, this strategy modifications are not used to produce improved thrombolytic drugs on the basis of the UK.

The term streptokinase used wherever collectively in the text, refers to variants of streptokinase, any of its f the purpose ground receiving stations fragments, functional muteena, isolates from different samples and the condensation products obtained by joining oligo - or polypeptides of natural or synthetic origin.

It is known that various functional groups in the protein molecule, can be used for the introduction of the PEG. The most frequently used methods is the derivatization lysine residues or cysteine residues in proteins. Alpha-amino group at the N-terminal fragment can also be used for a single homogeneous conjugation of PEG to proteins (Baker et al., 2006). However, the use of cysteine residues for attachment of PEG groups is particularly preferred, because potentially SH-groups can be used as a target site-specific manner, especially if the protein contains, or may be arranged in such a way that it contained a very limited number of cysteine residues. It is no exaggeration to assume that conjugation with PEG becomes an art form when the protein is devoid of any cysteines, because it is a virtual blank canvas for accession, the introduction of cysteine or replacement of a cysteine for site-specific "painting" PEG, or scenery proteins. Because potentially joining cysteines it does not contain cysteine substrate may have nebago etoe effect on the function of a protein. Therefore, the choice of sites for receiving cysteine variants requires careful planning and execution. As opposed to, say, pegylation, based on a modification of the lysine, while the chemistry of this reaction is well known that heterogeneity is a significant drawback. In the case of SC large number of lysine residues are evenly distributed along the polypeptide and therefore limit the ability of a homogeneous site-specific PEG conjugation. Interesting that in the streptokinase molecule no natural cysteine (Malke et al., 1985), so that it becomes possible to obtain different variants of streptokinase. In addition, natively folded covalent derivatives of SK generated at the confluence with fibrillazione domains (reference US Patent 7163817). This gives the possibility of obtaining various options specific to blood clots streptokinase containing a free cysteine in the absence of the actual factors that interfere with the normal folding of the protein, rich in cysteine (all cysteine residues involved in disulfide bond formation). Enter the free cysteine(s) may interact with various reagents on tirinya groups, including PEG, with the formation of cysteine adducts of these proteins.

Streptokinase (SK) is a species designation secretory protein, formed the centre of the PTO hemolytic streptococci, able to induce lysis of plasma clots (Tillet and Gamer, 1933). Therefore, it can easily and economically be obtained from its main source, or when using rDNA technology of suitable heterologous hosts, SC very cost-effective and therefore is the main thrombolytic drug connection, especially for global markets responsive to price. It is shown that SC is very effective in the clinical treatment of acute myocardial infarction accompanied by thrombosis of the coronary arteries (1SIS-3, 1992), and acts as a thrombolytic agent for more than three decades. However, it has several disadvantages. It is known that the plasmin generated during activation of plasminogen, streptokinase-mediated splits the streptokinase soon after its introduction (Ms. Rajagopalan et al., 1985, Wu et al., 1998). This limits the half-life of streptokinase in vivo approximately 15 min (Wu et al., 1998). Although streptokinase remains in the bloodstream much longer than the selected other thrombolytic drug, TPA (with a half-life equal to less than 5 min; Ross, 1999; Ouriel, 2002), it is not enough for effective therapy (Wu et al., 1998). Because of the deficiencies associated with the rapid excretion in vivo available plasminogen activators, attempts to obtain improved recombinant PR is spodnie these compounds (Nicolini et al., 1992, Adams et al., 1991, Lijnen et al., 1991; Marder, 1993, and Wu et al., 1998). Despite its internal problems streptokinase remains the preferred drug, especially in developing countries, because of its relatively low cost (for example, approximately US $ 50 or less on the course of treatment compared to nearly US $ 1500 for TRA).

First it is shown that streptokinase causes the lysis of blood clots (Tillet and Gamer (1933)). However, it was later shown that the fibrinolytic activity of the SC due to its ability to activate plasminogen person PPP (HPG), described Castellino, 1979. Streptokinase is mainly secreted β-hemolytic group a, C and G streptococci. SK represents the activator GHG man, although she is not a protease, rather it is associated with PG/MO person and attracts other molecules HPG as a substrate and turns them into a product, MO. Last circulates in the bloodstream. The plasmin, being non-specific protease, generalized and intermediate generation MO after injection of IC leads to the widespread destruction of various factors of the blood, which leads to the risk of bleeding, as well as to the dissolution of the ECM and basement membrane (BM) and an increase in bacterial invasiveness in the secondary centers of infection in the host's body (Esmon and Mather, 1998; Uihteenmaki et al., 2001). Thus, there is an acute necessity is the cost to minimize side effects design improved analogues of the UK.

Currently, SC intensively used as a thrombolytic medicines all over the world, because it is an effective solvent of fibrin clots, but it has its own limitations. SC is a protein produced from hemolytic streptococci, its use in humans induces immunogenicity (McGrath and Patterson, 1984; McGrath et al., 1985; Schweitzer et al., 1991). It is known that high titers of anti-SA immunoglobulin (Ig) generated after the first SC injection, remain with the patient during the period from several months to several years (Lee et al., 1993). Thus, anti-SK antibodies significantly limit its application as a prolonged therapy or due to neutralization of the SC in the introduction (Spottal and Kaiser, 1974; Jalihal and Morris, 1990), or due to the fact that it raises allergic reactions (McGrath and Patterson, 1984; McGrath et al., 1985).

As mentioned above, the use of streptokinase thrombolytic therapy prevents the relatively short half-life (a few minutes) of this protein in vivo (which is actually observed for all currently used thrombolytic drugs), in addition to its immunogenicity. It is shown that the foreign proteins when introduced into the bloodstream of the vertebrate often rapidly excreted through the kidneys. This situation becomes even bol is e acute in the case of streptokinase, when gradually increasing doses of protein (in order to exceed the rapid neutralization caused by the antibody) can significantly increase the likelihood of an allergic response/s, which makes the re-introduction largely ineffective and dangerous. Usually attempts to solve these problems in the literature are well documented, where it is shown that to obtain the improved medicinal substances suitable various physical and chemical modification, for example, see: Mateo, C. et al., 2000, Lyczak, J. C. & Morrison, S. L. 1994, Syed, S. et. al.; 1997, Allen, T. M. 1997. The most promising of them is currently the modification of therapeutic proteins covalent joining polyalkylbenzene polymers, e.g. polyethylene glycol (PEG). PEG is neoantigenic, inert polymer and it is known that it increases the half-life of circulating proteins in the body (Abuchowski et al., 1984; Hershfield, 1987; Meyers et al., 1991). It provides long-lasting action of medicinal substances in their use. Believe that conjugation of PEG to proteins increases their overall size and therefore reduces the rapid renal elimination. In addition, attaching a PEG attached to a protein or polypeptide greater solubility in water and increases their stability in vivo, along with greatly reduced and is monogenist and increased stability in vivo (Katre et al., 1987; Kcitre, 1990). U. S. Pat. No.. 4,179,337 discloses the use of PEG or polipropilenglikol attached to proteins, to obtain physiologically active non-immunogenic water soluble polypeptide composition.

Although the chemistry of conjugation of PEG is mostly universal, the key location of the polymers PEG in therapeutic protein is paramount to achieving successful results. The availability of information about the three-dimensional structure with functional active areas identified through various studies in solution, helps in the development of the plan of introduction of mutations to keep the functionality the same.

Complete amino acid sequence SK is defined sequential degradation analysis on Adminu fragments SC received bromocyanogen and enzymatic methods (Jackson and Tang, 1982). The results showed that a molecule with a molecular mass Mrequal 47408 Yes, contains 415 amino acids in a single polypeptide chain of amino acid sequence.

The nucleotide sequence from S. equisimilis H46A (strain prototype for receiving the IC, which are most often used therapeutically for the treatment of humans) was sequenced Malke with employees in 1985. It was also studied the transcriptional control of this gene and described functional Ana is from its complex promoter (Grafe et al., 1996). Consequently, there is significant information for the effective use of this gene in order with confidence to receive streptokinase in a relatively non-pathogenic microbes.

The purpose of the invention

Another objective of the present invention is the selective modification of streptokinase to improve its pharmacokinetic properties and give it the properties of a therapeutically effective thrombolytic and increased proteolytic stability and longer half-life in vivo.

Another objective of the present invention is the selective modification of streptokinase in order to retain the desired biological properties inherent to unmodified molecule.

Another purpose of this invention is the provision of a derivative of the IC, which provides a longer lasting and more effective fibrinolysis in a particular site with reduced immunoreactivity.

Another purpose of this invention is the provision of a method of obtaining paglierani cysteine variants of streptokinase or its active Malinov or molecules of hybrid molecules of activator PLA is minogin in pure and biologically active form.

Disclosure of inventions

Therefore, the present invention provides mutant streptokinase, its functional fragments or covalently modified forms. Derivatives include polypeptides belonging to SC, where one or more cysteine residues substituted by one or more nonessential amino acids preferably, derivatives contain a cysteine residue is replaced with an amino acid selected from amino acids included in the area of the loop, the ends of alpha helices and even in the field, forming a secondary structure, or area where cysteine residues attached to the N-end-or-end of the protein molecule, in the presence or absence of amino acid extensions.

The present invention includes common methods of selection, production and application of streptokinase exhibiting increased proteolytic stability, increased half-life from plasma and reduced immunogenicity. Derivatives have modified amino acid sequences, but actually retain their biological activity. The present invention also describes cysteine variants of streptokinase, covalently associated with one or more molecules of polyethylene glycol (PEG) of various molecular weights, for example, 5, 10, 20 and 40 kDa. One of the embodiments of the present invention Casa is tsya pharmaceutical compositions options paglierani streptokinase together with suitable inert fillers, stabilizers and carriers known in the art for effective distribution in the body in the treatment of various diseases of the circulatory system.

The implementation of the invention

The present invention is based on the experimental results, indicating that the covalent addition of one or more molecules of PEG to strategically substituted or added cysteine residues in the molecule streptokinase leads to biologically active paglierani the streptokinase with increased proteolytic stability and longer half-life and less immunoreactivity compared with native streptokinase. The localization and the number of molecules with PEG-conjugation can be selected using cysteine variants, designed in such a way that they could not inhibit the catalytic function (activation of plasminogen) in the streptokinase and its active variants, including streptokinase specific to blood clots (in this context can refer to U. S. Patent 7163817, which describes the structure and design options streptokinase specific to blood clots, increased fibrinolytic activity due to the introduction fibrinspecific domains on either or both ends of the protein molecule SC). Replacement, connection or introduction of one or not is how many molecules of cysteine in the streptokinase and streptokinase polypeptide, specific to blood clots, creates conditions for the desired localization when attaching a PEG of different molecular masses of the polypeptides provided that replacement and/or accession conduct "strategically" completely, avoiding loss of functional properties, and leads to production of new useful properties that are not in unmodified native protein. The choice of the location of the PEG design, based on the surface distance of the selected site and its structural and functional significance.

Paglierani streptokinase of the present invention have greater applicability as therapeutic agents, as well as large advantages compared with native molecule(s), as preserving native or nearly native biological activity, they have a longer latency period compared with the first, which quickly disintegrate in vitro in the presence of plasmin (plasminogen), and after injection, with the result that they are very rapidly eliminated from the bloodstream. On the contrary, paglierani streptokinase show significantly higher proteolytic stability, are immunoreactive and removed from the bloodstream in vivo only after significantly increased period of time compared with native (naegeliana) proteins.

Therefore, paglierani with whom replikins of the present invention is effective for the treatment of subjects with impaired blood circulation, for example, with venous or arterial thrombosis, myocardial infarction and so on, having the advantage that paglierani streptokinase of the present invention have the potential to increase efficiency by increasing the duration and reduction of immunoreactivity, which gives the possibility of re-introduction due to the minimal antigenicity. The number, size and localization of the groups(s) PEG can be used in this way to reconstruct streptokinase for implementation of different half-life times, so you can use them according to the requirements of a specific disease/clinical syndrome, or a specific patient.

The present invention includes selective modification of streptokinase for pharmaceutical applications as to strengthen their pharmacokinetic properties, and to provide a therapeutically effective thrombolytic drugs. This invention also includes a mutant streptokinase, natural or artificial variants that retain the desired biological properties of the native unmodified molecules. All derivatives of the present invention can be obtained by expressionism sequence of recombinant DNA that encodes a desired derived host cells, for example, prokaryotic cells x is zaina, for example, E. coli or in eukaryotic host cells, for example, yeast cells, or mammalian cells, using the commonly used materials known in the art. Information on DNA sequences for encoded streptokinase of different drugs can be obtained from published data. We studied the polymorphism of streptokinase and explained his role in the pathogenesis (Malke H, 1993). Also conducted a molecular epidemiological study to determine the distribution of the gene streptokinase group a streptococcal strains of different M types and other drugs Streptococcus. The majority of the studied strains in this study showed positive streptokinase activity according to the overlay test casein-plasminogen. The cumulative results of these studies show that there is considerable heterogeneity among streptokinase obtained from different streptococcal drugs (Huang et al.; 1989). You can use any of the available variants of streptokinase, which are able to activate plasminogen to mutagenesis of cysteine and subsequent modifications reactive sulfhydryl reagents.

New DNA sequences encoding the mutants and species derivatives can be similarly cloned and expressed, the AK and in the case of natural forms. Then streptokinase, obtained by expression in genetically engineered host cells can be purified and, if desired, converted into pharmaceutical compositions in the usual way.

As a preferred aspect of the present invention streptokinase, expressed by recombinant react with the target reactive agents on Tilney group under conditions that allow the accession of balance, reactive Tilney group, sulfhydryl group introduced cysteine residues in streptokinase.

The term "reactive Tilney group" is defined here as any compound having a reactive group or able to be activated by formation of a reactive group able to join the sulfhydryl group (-SH) of cysteine residue. Among such compounds include polymers, for example, polypropylenglycol and PEG, polymers based on carbohydrates and polymeric amino acids and derivatives of Biotin. The connection is subject to conjugation, can be activated sulfhydryl residues, for example, a sulfhydryl group, thiol, triflate, tresilian, aziridine or oxirane or preferably by iodoacetamide or maleimide. Conjugating group may have a different molecular weight, preferably, from 500 to 40000 for the PEG. One of the most important features of the present invention is to make the positional selectivity of the pegylation or other ttings while maintaining the functional properties of the protein.

Thus, the present invention provides mutant streptokinase polypeptide with the amino acid sequence selected from the group consisting of SEQ ID NO: 1-24, where at least one cysteine residue substituted or embedded.

Especially the present invention is characterized paglierani cysteine variants of streptokinase or its Malinov or hybrid molecules of plasminogen activator containing polypeptide communication between streptokinase (SK), or modified forms of IC, or their respective parts, is able to activate plasminogen (PG), with fibrillazione areas fibronectin person selected from fibrinspecific domains fibronectin person (for example, a pair of domains 4 and 5, or domains 1 and 2, or their modified forms), due to the fact, that activators of hybrid plasminogen have the ability to independently contact the fibrin and therefore be specific to blood clots due to their increased affinity for the substance a blood clot, i.e. fibrin (U. S. Patent no. 7163817).

It provides a mono-, or bi-, or multipayline the s cysteine variants of streptokinase or its protestirovannyx forms, not only active in terms of their ability to activate GHG, but also reveal new and unexpected functional properties. For example, biparentally cysteine variant of IC, in which additional cysteine molecules are located in the two end parts of the polypeptide, i.e., the N - and C-ends, shows an unexpected property with respect to its ability to activate plasminogen person, consisting in the fact that it has a significantly lower rate of activation of plasminogen (PG) compared to unmodified SK, but is fully able to activate plasminogen as well as unmodified SK, a few minutes after the end of the lag-period, when the tests of PG activation in vitro. Failure to semiaccurate nezamecheno (as in the case of native unmodified IC, which activates GHG almost in contact) due to platensimycin action type. In contrast, activation of native SK need no plasmin, and it activates almost as soon as it forms a complex with PG. Thus, after injection into the body, is derived SK travels through the bloodstream, while still in an inactive or partially active state. However, it is preferably activated in the immediate vicinity of the thrombus at the time of his contact with the blood clot, which, ka is known, formulated with plasmin, while the overall flow is not saturated (free plasmin is rapidly inactivated when "open" circulation due to the presence plastisizing of Sechenov [serine proteinase inhibitors], for example, alpha-2-antiplasmin and alpha-2-macroglobulin), which thus eliminates or significantly reduces systemic activation of GHGs occurring synchronously with the introduction of natural SC, which now activates the PG in the introduction, accompanied by side effects, such as bleeding and large-scale destruction of various protein components of the cardiovascular system. This property, i.e., placentalia activation with increased half-life and low immunogenicity and antigenicity, should lead not only to an overall reduced formation of free plasmin in the overall flow, but also to the ability to thrombolytic to be re-introduced in various diseases of the circulatory system at relatively low doses, which avoids unwanted immune reactions. The total result is longer lasting and more effective fibrinolysis in the target assumes a much lower therapeutically effective dose of thrombolytic agent by minimizing side effects, such as reducing immunoreactive and reducing the negative consequences of hemorrhagic complications, often observed for normal SC.

All other reagents have the highest degree of chemical purity.

Layering casein-plasminogen for determination of ck activity: the Activity of various derivatives of IC is determined by the layering of casein and plasminogen person in soft agar. The original way Malke and Ferretti, 1984; was modified, when the stain of purified SK (0.5 microgram) was applied directly to the observed deepening on plates with LB-Amp agar. Then Cup incubated at 37°C for 10 minutes; after that, the casein-HPG-agarose is applied, carefully pouring the mixture of solutions a and b at the top of the cups containing spots. A solution obtained by heating 1 g of skim milk in 15 ml of 50 mm Tris-HCl buffer (pH 7.5), and then kept at 37°C in a water bath until further use. The solution obtained by heating of 0.38 g of agarose in 15 ml of 50 mm Tris-HCl buffer (pH 7.5) at 50°C. After cooling the solution to 37°C add 3 ál of Triton X-100 (,04%.about.) and 200 μg HPG. Then the plate is incubated at 37°C and observed for the formation of zone of clearance (education halos), due to the hydrolysis of casein with subsequent activation of the HPG.

To determine the proteolytic stability of each paglierani derived and native SK incubated with proteolytic enzymes, such as trypsin or plasmin. The concentration of the protease used in the reaction, vary in the range 500-10,000 times the concentration of proteins. Reactions carried out with shaking at 25°C for two to four hours. The same number trypsinization protein for both test and control placed on plates with LB-Amp agar and measuring the residual activity after stratifying on Cup casein-plasmalogen.

Analysis of proteins by electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gel in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS-PAGE): SDS-PAGE carried out essentially according to Laemmli, U. K., 1970, with minor modifications, if needed. Briefly, the protein samples obtained by mixing equal volumes of sample and buffer with a twofold increased concentration (0.1 M Tris-HCI, pH 6,8; 6% SDS; 30% glycerol; 15% beta-mercaptoethanol and 0.01% dye bromophenol blue). For carrying non electrophoresis in polyacrylamide gel in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate in the sample buffer does not include beta mercaptoethanol. Before applying the gel on the specimens heated in boiling water bath for 5 minutes. Heterogeneous system gel typically contains 5% (concentration of acrylamide) at separations of proteins and 10% during the decomposition of the gel. Electrophoresis is performed using the Laemmli buffer at a constant current equal to the first 15 mA, up until samples of the concentrate, and then at 30 mA until the process is complete. After completion of electrophoresis, the gel is dipped in a 0.1% solution Kumasi Blue R250 in the system methanol : acetic acid : water (4:1:5) with gentle shaking and then discolor in decolorizing solution (20% methanol and 10% glacial acetic acid) until such time as the background will not be transparent.

Paglierani proteins can be stained with iodine according to the standard method, developed Kurfiirst (Kurfiirst M. M., 1992), according to which specifically stained molecules of PEG. For staining of purified derivatives of PEG-iodine immediately after completion of the electrophoresis, the gel is soaked in a 5% solution of glutaraldehyde (Merck) for 15 minutes for fixation. After this, the gel is stained to determine the PEG as follows. Firstly, the gel is placed in a solution of 20 ml of perchloric acid (0,I M) for 15 minutes and then 5 ml of a 5% solution of barium chloride and add 2 ml of 0.1 M solution of iodine (Merck, Titrisol 9910). After a few minutes the streak painted paglinawan protein. For double staining for e is foresa in polyacrylamide gel in the presence of sodium dodecyl sulfate gels, painted with iodine, then paint Kumasi Blue R250, using the Laemmli Protocol described above.

Kinetic analyses (Shi et al., 1994, Wu et al., 1987, Wohl et al., 1980) are used to determine the activation of HPG modified PEG and unmodified SK or its covalent derivatives, especially when it is necessary to determine the kinetic constants. PEG-modified or unmodified IC or covalently modified forms in different concentrations (10 nm - 200 nm) is added to a final volume of 100 microliters multilauncher tablet containing 1-2 μm HPG in the buffer for the quantitative determination (50 mm Tris-HCI buffer, pH 7.5, containing 0.5-1 mm chromogenic substrate and 0.1 M NaCl). Used chromogenic substrate (S-2251, Roche Diagnostics GmbH, Germany) is platensimycin and gives the splitting of the yellow colored product, the content of which can be determined at 405 nm.

Aliquots of protein add after adding in the hole all the other components and the first spectrophotometric absorption is taken for zero. Then determine the change in absorption at 405 nm as a function of time in the tunable microplate reader for Versa-Max from Molecular Devices, USA. The appropriate dilution of S. equisimilis streptokinase obtained using WHO, Hertfordshire, U. K., used as a standard sample for calibration in international units on the I unknown drugs.

The test to determine the stationary kinetic constants HPG activator activity of PEG-modified and unmodified IC and its covalently modified forms.

To determine kinetic parameters for HPG activation in the buffer for the quantitative determination containing different concentrations of HPG (varying in the range of from 0.035 to 2.0 micromol) add a fixed amount of PEG-modified and unmodified IC and its covalently modified forms of 0.05-0.1 nanomoles) in advance of the tablet, as described above. Then spectrophotometrically measured change in absorbance at 405 nm for 10-40 min at 25°C. Then the standard methods to calculate the kinetic parameters of activation of HPG from the plot of inverse values of the Michaelis-Menton (Wohl et al., 1980).

Various paglierani SC or her mutiny and native SK, labeled with radioactive iodine, Iodine125(I125) get in a Perkin Elmer Singapore Pte Ltd., when using the method with the participation of Imogene (1,3,4,6-tetrachloro-3α-6α-diphenylpyrrole) (Fraker & Speck, 1978). According to this method, used Fraker and Speck, ionogen dissolved in chloroform and applied on the walls of the tube of borosilicate glass by evaporation of the solvent by means of a jet of nitrogen gas. For iodination of the protein solution in phosphate buffer (PBS) is added to trunk is, covered iodophenol, and mixed with I125. Approximately 10-30 min, protein, labeled with radioactive iodine, is separated from free radioactive iodine by desalting on a column of Sephadex G25 (fine) (Amersham Biosciences).

Design and construction of vector pet, containing the gene SC (PET-23d-CK), described Nihalani et al.; (1998). They include cloning the gene SC Streptococcus equisimilis H46A in pBR 322 (Pratap et al., 1996) with subsequent sublimemovies into pet-23d, expressing a vector containing a high-performance binding site of ribosomes from T7 phage main capsid protein (Studier and Moffatt, 1986), and additional modification of the 5' end of the gene for the ability to minimize the formation of secondary structure. A vector is contiguous position inside the frame initiation codon for Met at the beginning of the open reading frame that encodes the UK, in order to Express the protein as Met-CK. For details you can refer to multi-stories et al.; 2007 (US Patent no. 7163817). SC mutiny can be constructed using the updated matrix, as in the case of the UK, in order to obtain a high intracellular expressing ability. This scheme receive a shortened derivative of the IC other way explained in detail Nihalani et al., 1998. In addition to sequencing the gene authenticity of the IC and its ukorochenniy the derivatives also installed gas-phase sequencing of N-terminal amino acids of proteins on protein sequencing machine Applied Biosystems-Perkin Elmer model A or 491 clc.

Briefly fibrillazione domains attached to the streptokinase N-end-or-end, or both the N-and C-end for various covalently modified forms of streptokinase.

Examples

Example 1

The choice of residues or regions of the protein to obtain cysteine variants of streptokinase

The choice of balance for a replacement or deletion is key to preserve the functionality of the modified polypeptides. Therefore, the plan cysteine mutagenesis requires structural information available in the crystal structure and functional representations received from the data for the study solutions. Detailed structural and functional studies for many years collected in a volume of information on the roles of different regions of streptokinase in the activation of plasminogen. For decision-making regarding residues or regions in which the natural amino acids can be preferably substituted by cysteine, we used the information contained in the three-dimensional structure of the IC or its individual domains along with their functional is important. The selection of residues for cysteine mutagenesis is based in part on surface accessibility of residues. The introduction of cysteine is also limited flexible regions of streptokinase. To determine the surface of the ledge using the program DSSP. Code DSSP is often used to describe the secondary structure of a protein with a single letter code. DSSP stands for "Dictionary of Secondary structure of the Protein". The program DSSP (Kabsch and Sander, 1983) defines the secondary structure, geometrical parameters and the availability of proteins in relation to solvents set of atomic coordinates in the format of the Bank the Protein Data. DSSP defines the accessibility of each residue in square angstroms. Once the program DSSP on this PDB file leads to reduced DSSP output format information. You can get the amount of surface availability under the Acc output format DSSP. To determine the surface accessibility of the use permitted crystal structure of streptokinase (Wang et al., 1998, PDB ID 1BML) in complex with microplasmin. To determine the surface accessibility of areas missed in this structure (175-181 and 252-262), use a crystalline structure selected beta domain (Wang et al., 1999, PDB ID 1c4p). Some of the loops is missed in the crystal structure, increased in experimentally received the Noah structure and it was determined the most preferred conformation using molecular models. Residues that are not necessarily found in the structure, but are defined as highly accessible because they are located in the flexible region, also selected for cysteine mutagenesis. Table 1 presents the magnitude of the surface availability for different cysteine variants of SK (SEQ ID no: 1), which is replaced by cysteine. This list, however, does not limit the scope cysteine replacement for other natural amino acids in SC. The value of the distance calculated by the DSSP program, selected directly as a measure of surface availability. The DSSP program includes many surface-accessible residues. However, selecting residues for cysteine substitutions conducted a careful selection. This experiment involves mutations are evenly distributed along the three different domains, namely alpha-, beta - and gamma-streptokinase. In addition, select mutations that fall in the secondary structural region. The selection includes a replacement for several cysteine residues, which have a particularly low surface accessibility, only in order to illustrate the fact that essentially all without exception remains of streptokinase can be replaced by cysteine and successfully modified reagents that interact with Tilney group.

Despite the variety nucleotide the th and polypeptide sequences there is considerable structural similarity among different bacterial plasminogen activators. Single-domain staphylokinase has structural homology with alpha-domain of streptokinase. Also dual-domain bullish plasminogen activator derived from Streptococcus uberis is characterized by its structural similarity to alpha - and beta-domains streptokinase. The evolutionary persistence of the three-dimensional structure of the protein among various bacterial plasminogen activators gives an opportunity to plan cysteine modification other variants of streptokinase, isolated from different bacterial species.

Genetic engineering of cysteine variants of streptokinase

All genetic constructs for ekspressirovali of streptokinase usually designed using conventional approaches known in the art. Describes how the manipulation of DNA to include mutations, for example, in PCR Protocols: A Guide to Methods and Applications, edited by Innis, M. A. et at, 1990, Academic Press Inc., San Diego, Calif. and PCR Protocols: Current Methods and Applications edited by B. A. White, 1993., Hurriana Press, Inc., Totowa, N. J., USA. Bacterial and yeast expression cassette is produced by introduction of a DNA molecule that encodes a desired streptokinase in an appropriate vector (or the introduction of the original matrix DNA in the vector and mutagenesis of sequences it is optional), after the existing transformation of host cells using expression cassettes using conventional methods, known in the art. Specific mutations introduced into the desired design using different procedures, for example, the technique of PCR-mutagenesis (Innis et al., 1990), set for mutagenesis, such that sells Stratagene ("Quick-Change Mutagenesis kit, San Diego, Calif.) or Promega (Gene Editor Kit, Madison Wis.). Typically, the oligonucleotides designed to include nucleotide changes in the coding sequence of streptokinase, which leads to the substitution, deletion or adding balance natural balance. Also design of mutagenic primers to add a cysteine at the beginning of the molecules of the Mature protein, i.e. in the position nearest to the N-terminal amino acid, or following the last amino acid in the Mature protein, i.e., after the C-terminal amino acids of streptokinase and its truncated constructs. A similar strategy is used for the introduction of cysteine residues between any two selected amino acids streptokinase or any of its forms, represented by SEQ ID NO: listed in table 2. Using standard methods, generate appropriate cysteinaemia mutants on various forms of IC. This was followed by the screening of the transformed clones for different mutants and fix the result of automated DNA sequencing using fluorescent dyes on 16 capillary sequestered Applied Biosystems 3130×1 16 Genetic Analyzer.

Overexpression and purification of biologically active streptokinase

All substances native protein streptokinase, NSC(nCK), her mutant and further cysteine mutants that need to be cleared, grown from a single colony, do the sowing stroke on a bowl of LB-Amp from their mother solutions BL21 (DE3) in glycerol. Primary cultures get inocula pET-23d-CK or variants SC in 10 ml of LB medium containing 100 μg/ml ampicilin environment (LB-Amp) and incubated for 8-16 hours at 30-37°C with shaking (180-280 rpm). This reinoculated used for inoculation of 500 ml of medium LB-Amp at a concentration of 2-10%.about. and give to grow at 30-37°C, at a speed of 180-280 rpm to O. D600 nm(optical density measured at 600 nm) of 0.5 to 1.0. At this stage it induce IPTG (final concentration of 0.5-1.0 mm) (Director et al., 1999; Dhar et al., 2002) and further grown at 40°C for 6-12 hours with shaking. The cells are then harvested by centrifugation at 6000-7000 g for 10 min. the Precipitate is then washed twice with ice buffer (final concentration of 100-150 mm NaCl, 10-50 mm Tris-HCl, pH 8.0 and 1-5 mm EDTA) and subjected to sonication (Heat System, New York) at 4°C, the duration of the sound pulse, equal to 30 seconds, alternating with equal periods of rest. Then cell lysate centrifuged at high speeds turnover (10000-14000 g) for 15 min SDS-PAGE analysis shows that more than 90% of the desired protein goes into Taurus on (IB). Then IB solubilizer in 8 M urea at room temperature is over 45 min with constant gentle shaking. Protein in the supernatant folded after 10-36-fold dilution (Sundram et al., 2003) in the buffer for the application (0.4 M NaCl in 20 mm PB). The sample was then chromatografic on the granules penyagolosa 6XL and elute with water. The thus obtained protein is then subjected to additional purification by anion-exchange chromatography on a column with DEAE-Separati® (GE-Amersham Biosciences). Protein fractions after HIC combine and add Tris-HCl buffer at pH 7.5 to a final concentration of 20 mm Tris-HCl, after which it put on a column of DEAE-Separate (Fast Flow), pre-equilibrated to 20 mm Tris-HCl (pH 7.5). After washing with buffer containing 20 mm Tris-HCl (pH 7.5) associated protein elute using a linear salt gradient (0-0 .5 M NaCl) at 20-25 mm Tris-HCl. Bweremana proteins IC usually have more than 95% purity, as shown SDS-PAGE. The amount of protein in each fraction was measured by the method of Bradford determination of proteins (Bradford., 1976) and confirmed by absorption measurement at 280 nm. All chromatographic stage is carried out at 4°C. Fractions containing protein, analyze together with standard IC and molecular weight standards for SDS-PAGE.

Covalent conjugation of cysteine variants of streptokinase with polyethylene glycol

Tirinya group in cysteine variants of streptokinase selectively pagealert when using maleimide-activated linear methoxide different lengths, for example, 5 kDa, 20 kDa and 40 kDa (JenKem Technology, USA). For the reaction of paglierani polypeptide to be pegylation stand in 50-100 mm Tris-HCl buffer at pH 8.0 containing 100 to 150 mm NaCl. To it add 5 molar excess of PEG-reagent. The molar excess is calculated from the number of free tylnej groups that interact with the EH-reagent, and not just from polyarnosti protein. The reaction mixture is left under stirring at room temperature for 1.5-4 hours, and then the reaction stopped by the addition of 1 mm DTT. Targeted protein from the free and unreacted PEG SK purified by anion-exchange chromatography on a column with DEAE separate (GE-Amersham Biosciences). The reaction mixture was diluted with 10-15 times 25 mm buffer phosphate at pH of 7.4, and then it is placed on a column filled DEAE-separate (Fast Flow), previously calibrated with the same buffer. After washing with buffer containing 25 mm sodium phosphate associated protein elute using a linear salt gradient (0-0 .5 M NaCl in 25 mm sodium phosphate. Alternatively, if some of paglierani derivatives cannot purely be separated from unreacted PEG ion exchange chromatography, these reaction mixture is subjected to gel chromatography on Sephadex 75 (Amersham Biosciences), using a buffer at neutral pH and the final concentration of NaCl equal to 100-150 mm. In addition, in some cases, when peeled containergrown protein samples that contain dimers, linked by disulfide bonds, first restore the addition of 10 mm dithiothreitol. Samples treated with dithiothreitol, absoluut on a column Packed granules Sephadex G-25 (fine) and now sportsouth La conjugation with PEG. Homodimer KS, linked by disulfide bonds, can also be separated using gel chromatography on Sephadex G-75 and can be used instead of the Monomeric streptokinase for therapeutic purposes, because of their large size and slow clearance.

Attaching PEG in all cases confirmed by SDS PAGE. Gel electrophoresis shows that >95% paglinawan protein in the fractions obtained after the removal of unreacted protein and free PEG-reagent.

Example 5

Layering casein-plasminogen to quickly identify the ability to activate plasminogen

The activity of different cysteine variants of SK and chimeric derivatives IC is determined by the layering of casein and HPG in soft agar. The initial way Malke and Ferretti, 1984 modified so that put a sample purified SK (0.1 to 0.5 micrograms) marked directly on the notch on plates with LB-Amp-agar. Then the plates are incubated at 37°C for 10 minutes; then carefully layer the mixture of casein-HPG the agarose careful pouring the mixture of solutions a and b on the surface of the Cup containing spots. A solution obtained by heating 1 g of skim milk in 15 ml of 50 mm Tris-HCl buffer (pH 7.5), and then kept at 37°C in a water bath until the next use. Rest the R obtained by heating of 0.38 g of agarose in 15 ml of 50 mM HCl buffer (pH 7.5) at 50°C. After keeping the solution at 37°C add 3 ál of Triton X-100 (0,04% vol./about.) and 100-200 μg HPG and mix carefully without foaming. The cap is then incubated at 37°C for 1-4 hours, and observing the formation of zones of enlightenment (education halos), due to the hydrolysis of casein, with subsequent activation of the HPG. You should take into account the size of the zone of lysis (halo) surrounding the hole in agarose medium, for comparing the ability to activate plasminogen streptokinase and its covalently modified derivatives. All cysteine variants of streptokinase retain significant ability to activate plasminogen, as shown by the test for casein-plasminogen overlay. Cysteine variants of streptokinase then used for conjugation with samples of PEG of different molecular masses in the range from 5,000 Da to 40,000 Da, reacting with thiol groups, and their activity determined using test layering casein-HPG control activity of the conjugated PEG against the loss of its ability to activate plasminogen. All streptokinase show a significant ability to activate plasminogen, as shown caseinolytic test, and therapeutically applicable. However, the desirable combination of a suitable time-life, which is required for clinical practice, as well as ponie the fair immunoreactivity, makes some derivatives are more applicable than others. Relatively lower activity may in some cases be well offset by increased proteolytic stability and half-life of PEG-protein adducts in vivo.

Alternative ability to activate plasminogen was also determined, as explained previously. Table 29 presents the activator activity of the HPG and the kinetic constants for several typical representatives paglierani derivatives IC. Table 30 summarizes the range of activity of the various paglierani derivatives covalently modified streptokinase containing attached fibrin domain.

Measurement of the activity of shortened forms SK (50-414 and 60-383) and their paglierani derivatives require the addition of synthetic peptides 1-49 for the manifestation of optimal amylolyticus and plazmogeneratora abilities. In the literature it has been shown that truncated derivatives IC, lacking the N-terminal peptide corresponding to a region 1-59 are poor activators of plasminogen and show increased activity when added to the reaction mixture or peptide SC 1-59, or fibrin for the manifestation of optimal amylolyticus ability and capacity to activate plasminogen (Nihalani et al., 1998 and Sazonova et al., 2004). To activate p is Aminogen paglierani derivatives IC, not containing peptides 1-49 or shorter N-terminal peptides, the results show a dependence on the presence of fibrin; their actions are limited by a blood clot, so they become transpacificus.

Example 6

Proteolytic stability paglierani cysteine variants of streptokinase

To determine the proteolytic stability of 50 micrograms each paglinawan derived and native SK as a control incubated with 50 Microlitre 50 mm Tris-HCl buffer and 100 mm NaCl. To this mixture, add trypsin to obtain the final correlation of targeted protein:trypsin, 1000:1 (wt./wt.). The reaction is carried out with shaking at 25°C for two to four hours. An equal number trypsinization protein is applied to plates with LB-Amp-agar and measure the residual activity as described in example 5 for the determination of ck activity. Equal aliquots applied from the control reactions in which the reaction mixture was added only trypsin or only SC or in the reaction mixture was added a hybrid IC. In this case, for each trypsinization paglierani streptokinase or covalently modified derivatives also determine the zone of lysis in the layering agarose. The area of the zone of lysis gives a direct measurement of the residual capacity to activate plasminogen is protected streptokinase or its variants. This test shows significant protection for the various study derived the UK, when they are conjugated with one, two or three residues of PEG and incubated with trypsin or plasmin. Found a many fold increase in proteolytic stability when attaching more than one group of PEG derivatives IC.

An alternative measurement of the residual activity is also confirmed for trypsinization paglierani streptokinase or covalently modified derivatives by measuring their ability to activate plasminogen using spectrophotometric one-step test described previously using a chromogenic substrate. Trypsinization SC and paglierani derivatives IC in various concentrations (1-10 nm) is added to a final volume of 100 microliters in multilauncher tablet containing 1-2 μm HPG in the buffer for testing (50 mm Tris-HCl buffer, pH 7.5, containing 0.5-1 mm chromogenic substrate and 0.1 M NaCl). Aliquots of protein add after adding in the hole all the other components. Then measure the change in absorption at 405 nm as a function of time in a custom tablet reader model Versa-Max from Molecular Devices Inc., USA. The results obtained in this way are consistent with the results obtained caseinolytic test. It is shown that when incubate is with trypsin in all paglierani forms of streptokinase and its covalently modified forms remains a significant functional activity. Naegeliana streptokinase falling in such conditions are hardly detektiruya activity and prone to digestion by trypsin.

The samples subjected to trypsinization, as taught in pampering SDS-PAGE in order to physically observe proteolytic stability and the generation of truncated fragments as a result of proteolysis. This gives a qualitative assessment of bypass protein, subjected trypsinization. With this purpose from the reaction mixture are selected aliquots at different time intervals and inhibit the reaction by adding 20-molar excess of soybean trypsin inhibitor (GE-Amersham Biosciences) in order to suppress further trypticase activity. Samples collected at different points in time (5-180 min), subjected to electrophoresis on 10% SBS-PAGE and analyze the content of protected intact protein. The results obtained in this experiment also confirm the correctness of the conclusions obtained in our functional study trypsinization proteins. Large residual capacity to activate plasminogen in the experiment is also reflected in a greater degree of protection protein when considering physical integrity by SDS-PAGE.

Example 7

Extra long N - and C-ends of options SC and PEG-modified form.

To establish that an arbitrary extension number and amino acids as N-, and with the end of the streptokinase molecule or its variants inevitably leads to the same result that was obtained with their newlistname counterparts; SK or its cysteine variants modify or N-end, either on the C-end with a small amino acid extension.

N-terminal extended form get by using two different strategies, leading to the polypeptides of two different sizes, namely, one with 6 amino acid elongation and another with 20 amino acid extension. Using the strategy of overlapping movements encoding 18 nucleotide elongation 6 his-tag residues placed before the N-terminal amino acid of the Mature streptokinase. The product of this modification is extended from the side of the N-end of the protein, optionally containing six amino acids. To enable extensions in the 20 amino acids cassette encoding the SC or its variants suffer from pet 23d in pet 15b (Cat. No.. 69661-3, Novagen, Inc. US). The tape cartridge in the pet 15b gives the N-terminal extension of 20 amino acids, including the lengthening of the six his-tag residues and the site of cleavage by thrombin. Cleavage of N-terminal elongation of the polypeptide can be carried out by thrombin. This leads to elongation with his-tag marker and to receive processioning polypeptide with the amino acid sequence, which is peculiar to the UK. SEQ ID NO: 496 dem will strirred amino acid sequence SK, obtained by cloning into pet 15b.

To obtain C-terminal elongated product lengthening of the six his-tag residues are added at once after the last amino acid of the IC or its derivatives by using the strategy of overlapping movements. This leads to the introduction of six additional residues at the C-end. The samples are cleaned by use of either a metal-affinity chromatography, or the application of cleaning methods described in example 2 to obtain homogeneity of the pure product. Further, these purified N - or C-terminal elongated derivatives IC or its derivatives modify the PEG, using the chemical reaction described in example 4. Biochemical study of the functional activity and proteolytic stability gives a result similar to that obtained for the corresponding elongated counterparts. This is a good reason to conclude that other N - or C-terminal elongated derivatives IC or its derivatives will lead to similar results. Specialists in this field can think of numerous possibilities extend from both the N-and C-end IC or its derivatives to obtain the functional forms of streptokinase, which can be used to replace the cysteine, insertions or additions of cysteine and their subsequent modification by thio who inim groups of PEG or other reagents for sulfhydryl group.

Example 8

The acquisition of new functional properties derived SC, where the PEG is attached on two ends, namely, to the N - and C-end IC or its truncated variants.

It is shown that the attachment of PEG groups as both N-and C-ends of the molecule streptokinase and any of its shortened study makes it functional activity dependent on the presence of plasmin. These new functional properties can be defined, when we observe that the profile of plasminogen activation biegeleben derived IC detects a lag-period of several minutes. To our surprise, when was studied activation of plasminogen biegeleben derived SC after it formed a complex with plasmin, it showed a normal (i.e., similar to the native SK) kinetics. The inability to nezamechennoi someactivity (as in the case of native, unmodified IC, which activates PG almost in contact) due to dependent plasmin nature of its actions. In contrast, native of SC does not require to activate any of plasmin and activated almost as soon as it forms a complex with PG. In experiments where samples are taken from the reaction mixture at different points in time on the kinetic curves of plasminogen activation, i.e., at an early stage (during the l the g-period), in the fast phase activation, etc., and analyzed using SDS-PAGE to monitor the type of products, it was found that activation is closely related to the formation of truncated fragments, in which the peptide segments containing PEG at the ends of the polypeptide, hatshepsuts under the action of plasmin. Similar results were obtained mass spectroscopic analysis. These results clearly establish the correlation between the activation of plasminogen PEG-modified IC and deleting groups PEG, indicating mediated plasmin activation mechanism, according to which? once removed a bulky group of the PEG, the fragments SC the opportunity to interact with plasminogen, as well as the NSC, and quickly to activate it. Therefore, it is clear that the presence of PEG groups on the ends, besides giving a stabilizing effect on proteolysis, immunoreactivity, and so on, expected regardless of the position also leads to unexpected emergence of a plasmin-dependent "switch", which has a strong beneficial effect on thrombolytic therapy.

Functional dependency property of plasmin, i.e., the built-in "plastikowy switch"? were also found in other biegeleben cysteine variants shortened the UK, where additional cysteine are two extreme positions of the polypeptide, and the name is about, the N - and C-ends that are unexpected ability in respect of activation of human plasminogen, when it occurs with a significantly lower initial rate of activation of plasminogen (PG) compared to unmodified SK, but acquires full capacity to activate plasminogen as well as unmodified IC after an initial lag period, which lasts several minutes, when determining the activation of PEG in vitro. Table 4 presents the stationary kinetic parameters for HPG activation by streptokinase and two different pipelinename derivatives IC. NC 1-414 refers to a derivative of the IC, in which cysteine is administered before the naturally occurring N-terminal amino acid, and after the C-terminal amino acid to obtain a double cysteine mutant SC. NC 1-383 refers to a shortened version of the IC, in which one cysteine is administered before the naturally occurring N-terminal amino acid, and after three consecutive glycine residues, which are located at 383 amino acid. The data show that both biegeleben derivatives are characterized by a pronounced lag period before they become fully functional. Kinetic parameters calculated by linear plots of the kinetic curves after a lag-period, show that immediately after that is about, as biegeleben derived fully activated after an initial lag period, have significant activity in terms of the ability to activate the PG compared to SC. Similar results were obtained with two pipelinename derivatives IC, in which PEG is attached at the ends, show that the manifestation of this new functional properties depends on the position and almost does not depend on the presence of a double modification of PEG in the same molecule. Thus, the dependence on plasmin reported the molecule, when one or two ends at N - and C-ends, in any functional fragment SC paglierani.

In addition, for specialists in this area it is obvious that such a functional property that can be communicated to the molecule in any modification inside and near the two ends (e.g., in a suitable side chain of lysine) may also lead to the emergence of dependent plasmin lag period when the plasminogen activation through proteolytic processing of streptokinase in which such "blocking" groups, which may be the remains of PEG, other protein domains, intact proteins, e.g. albumin, etc. are removed during proteolysis, allowing the remaining polypeptide to become functionally active against activation of plasminogen. Thus, it is possible what to expect similar effects, when groups of PEG attached to the ends, using any available chemical reaction. One such chemical approaches uses the difference in the values PKandbetween the alpha amino group at the N-Terminus and is usually involved in conjugation with PEG-reactive alpha-amino group. Similar properties in different shortened combinations of end groups indicate that as only two groups of PEG fixed in any position within or near the two end groups of the molecule may purchase dependent on plasmin.

Thus, after introduction into the body is derived IC starts its movement through the vasculature, while still being in an inactive or partially active state. However, it starts preferably be activated in the immediate vicinity of the thrombus, in the moment of contact with the blood clot, which is known to be enriched by plasmin, while the overall flow no (free plasmin is rapidly inactivated in the "open" blood flow due to the presence plastisizing of Sechenov (serine proteinase inhibitors), for example, alpha-2-antiplasmin and alpha-2-macroglobulin), which thus eliminates or significantly reduces systemic activation of GHGs occurring synchronously with the introduction of natural SC, which nezamecheno activates the PG with the introduction involving side effe is Tami, for example, bleeding and large-scale destruction of various protein components of the cardiovascular system. This property, i.e., placentalia activation with increased half-life and low immunogenicity and antigenicity should not only lead to overall reduced formation of free plasmin in the overall flow, but also to the ability to thrombolytic to be re-introduced in various diseases of the circulatory system at relatively low doses, which avoids unwanted immune reactions. The total result is longer lasting and more effective fibrinolysis in the target assumes a much lower therapeutically effective dose of thrombolytic agent by minimizing side effects.

Further improvement of this property is to give biegeleben molecule based on fibrin introduction of PEG groups in the two extreme positions derivatives IC 50-414 or SC 60-383. This result is possible because the deletion of the "catalytic switch" (the remnants of SC 1-59) changes the conformation of the alpha-domain SC and turns these truncated fragments in firesafety plasminogen activator, as shown by Reed et al., 1999 and Sazonova et al., 2004. The expected result of constructing such biegeleben derivative is C the dependence of plasmin and improved the ratio of fibrin dependence/affinity. These two properties, i.e., platinova dependence and the ratio of fibrin affinity/selectivity makes the molecule activator of PG, which is directed exclusively against fibrin clots. Such molecules can effectively resolve the problem of systemic activation of PG and to allow for a strict PG activation only in the immediate vicinity of the fibrin clot.

Then mouse injected approximately 7 micrograms labeled with radioactive iodine protein in sterile saline via the tail vein and collect all blood samples of approximately 50 MK is in a period of time necessary for blood sampling from the tail or from retroorbital cavity, and stored in heparinized appendrows tubes. Samples processed for plasma and determine the activity of the125I scintillation counter, Perkin-Elmer. After determining the activity125I to each aliquot of plasma, add an equal volume of 20% THU to determine the number of125I, remaining associated with the intact protein. Samples quickly stirred on the vortex and place on ice for 15 min Aliquots centrifuged at approximately 3000 g for 10 min, and the supernatant, containing free label or the label associated with fragmented protein, is sucked off from each sample using an aspirator. Formed after deposition THU upsetting determine the activity of the125I. Usually handle duplicate samples and average values.

Residual radioactivity different plasma samples, obtained by precipitation with acid, after administration paglierani cysteine variants of streptokinase is used to determine the half-life in the experiments in vivo. The results of determination of time-life show varying degrees of retention in vivo of various derivatives of PEG, when they are conjugated with one, or two, or three residues of PEG. These results show that with the introduction of more than one group PEG recip is different as a result, the half-life is also increased. The half-life for several selected paglierani derivatives IC are summarized in table 32, which shows that, on average, is 5-120mm-fold longer half-life for various mono-, bi - and trippelironi cysteine variants of streptokinase. It is shown that the retention time paglierani cysteine variants of SK depend on the provisions of the attached PEG. Paglierani derivatives in the alpha loop 88-97 are characterized by a maximum increase (~15-20-fold) retention time in vivo, while paglierani derivatives IC in the beta-domain characterized by intermediate increase (~10-12-fold) retention time in vivo. Paglierani derivatives in the gamma domain are characterized by approximately 4-5-fold longer half-life in vivo. In General, all paglierani streptokinase are characterized by multiple time increase the half-life compared to native SK (12-15 minutes). This means that paglierani cysteine variants are characterized by a significant increase in the time half-life in vivo, and demonstrates increased deceleration steps paglierani SC. Similar results were obtained with other containername variants of SK after paglierani. It is well known that increased slow steps paglinawan derived due to the balance of PEG and does not depend on the position of the polymer PEG molecule SC. Thus, joining the rest of the PEG through the cysteine residue leads to paglierani IC or hybrid derived SC, having increased the inhibition of determining the possibility of the introduction of smaller paglinawan connections while maintaining a high level connections in the blood for a long time.

Additivity in the elimination of time-life when joining two groups of PEG shows that can be manipulated as desired or to provide in accordance with the requirements of the elimination of time-life by conjugation with PEG groups in the right quantity, position and also by varying the length of the polymer molecules of PEG.

Immunoreactivity paglierani cysteine variants of streptokinase

The reactivity of the NSC and paglierani cysteine variants of SK and its covalently modified forms in respect of polyclonal antisera IC induced in the rat, studied by the method based on the method of enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The ELISA procedure is as follows.

1. SC and paglierani options SK first dissolved in 0.2 M bicarbonate buffer, pH of 9.2 to obtain 100 microliter solution containing from 0.75 to 1.5 micrograms micrograms of protein, and the solution was added to each well of microtiter planches the TA (Nunc 96-Well Microplates, Cole-Parmer, USA).

2. Tablet sensitized antigen, cover with paraffin and incubated in a cold room over night in a humid box containing a wet paper towel or at room temperature and humidity for two hours when lightly shaken.

3. The tablet is empty and unoccupied space block 200 μl of blocking buffer containing 5-10% skim milk in phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) for one hour at room temperature.

4. The tablet is empty and washed four times proryvnym buffer obtained from PBS.

5. A solution of primary antibody is first diluted with PBS to obtain the dilution factor equal to 50000. To each well add 100 ál of diluted antibody. The tablet then incubated at room temperature for 45-60 minutes when lightly shaken.

6. Again empty tablet and washed four times proryvnym buffer.

7. Labeled with the enzyme horseradish peroxidase antibody against the antigen dissolved in PBS. 100 μl of this solution was added to each well and incubated at room temperature for 1 hour.

8. Again empty tablet and washed six times in 1 X PBS.

9. To each well add 100 ál of TMB liquid substrate, tetramethylbenzidine, Sigma-Aldrich, USA) and the plate is left for 10 minutes at room temperature the re.

To stop the reaction in each well add 50 μl of 1 N sulfuric acid and the development of color fix spectrophotometrically at 450 nm.

The absorption values at 450 nm in ELISA obtained for unmodified NSC and various paglierani options IC, is used to estimate the relative degrees of their immunoreactivity against the polyclonal anticigarette IC induced in rats. A study using ELISA show that conjugation with one group of PEG molecular weight of 20 kDa in one of three domains of IC reduces its reactivity in relation to the contents of the wells are less than 20% against polyclonal antisera SC. Conjugation with two groups of PEG molecular weight of 20 kDa, i.e., one with N-and the other with C-end IC reduces its reactivity in relation to the contents of the wells are less than 20% against polyclonal antisera. Conjugation with two groups of PEG molecular weight of 20 kDa, i.e., one in each domain SC brings reactivity almost to the detected level. Therefore, it is clear that conjugation of molecules(s) PEG with different areas of the IC significantly reduces their reactivity against polyclonal serum. In vitro tests showing low reactivity of the antibodies, prove that the reduced induction of the immune response occurs as soon as Mahilyow the config protein is administered to the living animal.

Table 33 lists the data immunoreactivity in percent remaining in paglierani versions of the IC, if the reactivity of unmodified SK wild-type is taken as 100%. Thus, the present invention discloses paglierani variants of streptokinase with significantly reduced immunoreactivity, but with intact thrombolytic activity.

Example 11.

The ability to activate plasminogen in different Paglierani mutant polypeptides of streptokinase.

In tables 35 and 36 below summarizes the capacity to activate plasminogen in different variants of SEQ ID NO:4 (16-383) that contain the replacement of a particular amino acid to cysteine. The analysis was carried out according to the technique disclosed in the description of this application.

Found that the profile activation Paglierani the cysteine variants of SEQ ID NO:4 have approximately a 10-minute lag period. This phenomenon was also observed for mutants derived from SEQ ID NO:491 (see example 8). However, it is noteworthy that when tested the ability to activate plasminogen these options after they formed a complex with equimolar amounts of plasmin, the profile of activation was the same as that of the natural streptokinase, i.e. without significant lag in the activation of plasminogen.

The results also absurd is defended in the example 8 of the present application, indicate dependent plasmin mechanism of action. Obviously, mediated plasmin activation of plasminogen is a significant advantage in thrombolytic therapy because of the blood clots enriched by plasmin, whereas in free flow, as a rule, there is no free active plasmin. Thus, activation of plasminogen, which depends on plasmin is an effective transpacificus mechanism of action inherent in variants of streptokinase according to the invention.

Advantages of the invention

The advantages of the present invention consist in solving design cysteine variants of streptokinase, Malinov, species variants and covalently modified forms. Sitespecifically conjugation of PEG to cysteine variants disclosed in this invention, according to the streptokinase molecule useful therapeutic properties, such as increased proteolytic stability, improved half-life in vivo and reduced immunoreactivity. More specifically, the present invention relates to the production of engineered variants of streptokinase for use in pharmaceutical compositions for the treatment of circulatory disorders.
