I t is known that the conformation of biopharmaceuticals or biologics, can be perturbed in solution under various conditions including pH, salts, ionic strength, hydrophobicity, ligands and or excipients interactions. The understanding of conformational changes of peptides and proteins is very important because it has a significant impact on the success of their pharmaceutical formulations and delivery profiles. Host-ligand binding interactions can be assessed by a variety of techniques such as Isothermal Calorimetry (ITC), Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR), Fluorescence and Circular Dichroism (CD). Each technique has its own strengths and weaknesses. ITC can be inconclusive when the thermal effects, associated with ligand interactions are rather small. SPR requires one of the components to be immobilized that can lead to positive or negative false/positive results. Fluorescence requires the presence of a fluorophore that does not absorb and emit light in the same wavelength of the ligand. CD relies on the presence of conformational changes induced upon ligand addition to determine unambiguously binding interactions. Recently, B23 had developed a novel assay of assessing biostability and ligand binding using the high photon flux. High photon flux in the vacuum and far UV region is known to denature/degrade biopolymers. Measures are in place at B23 beamline to eliminate this effect. However, UV denaturation/degradation can also be exploited as a novel method for assessing or discriminate biopolymer stability as well as ligand binding interactions. Here we present some examples using this novel high photon flux of SRCD B23 beamline technique.
