A recently granted patent (Publication Number: US11857628B2) discloses a cell-targeting molecule designed for specific binding to extracellular target biomolecules. The molecule comprises a Shiga toxin effector polypeptide, a binding region for target biomolecules, and a linker peptide connecting the two regions. The Shiga toxin effector polypeptide includes specific amino acid sequences and substitutions, along with cysteines suitable for conjugation to other molecules. The binding region can include various amino acid residues suitable for conjugation to heterologous molecules, such as cysteine, lysine, histidine, or non-natural amino acid residues.

Furthermore, the patent claims cover a wide range of variations and applications for the cell-targeting molecule, including specific amino acid substitutions, linker peptide sequences, and binding region compositions. The molecule can be conjugated to various heterologous molecules, such as antibiotics, cytotoxic agents, radionuclides, or enzymes, for targeted therapeutic or diagnostic purposes. Additionally, the patent includes pharmaceutical compositions comprising the cell-targeting molecule and pharmaceutically acceptable excipients or carriers, highlighting the potential for developing novel targeted therapies based on this innovative technology.
