Anti-human factor IX monoclonal antibody, A-5 (Mab A-5), has been widely used in structure-function studies for factor IX. Mab A-5 recognizes the catalytic domain of human factor IX (FIX). Regions important for Mab A-5 binding have previously been localized to the amino terminus of the heavy chain of factor IX, encompassing amino acid residues 181- 310 [Blood (74) 971]. We have selected 20 positions in this region for alanine-scanning mutagenesis. We found that Mab A -5 failed to react with the recombinant factor IX mutants with substitutions at positions 228 and 252. Mab A-5 also reacted to a lesser extent to FIXD276A (factor IX with alanine substitution for aspartic acid at residue 276) and FIXK201A/D203A (double alanine substitutions at residues 201 and 203). The apparent dissociation rate constants (K-D) in binding Mab A-5 were 6.0 x 10(-9), 1.4 x 10(-8) and 2.0 x 10(-8) M, for wild-type FIX, FIXK201A/D203A and FIXD276A, respectively. The increased K-D values of the two FIX mutants are mainly owing to the increased dissociation rates . These affected residues constitute a surface opposite from the factor VIIIa binding surface. We conclude that the epitope for Mab A-5 is on a surface composed of residues 228 , 252, 276, and 201 or 203. This surface, which may not be important for factor VIII binding, contains a strong antigenic region on factor IX. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved
