Abstract: In this manuscript we describe the two-step purification of a mono-PEGylated anti-epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) single-chain Fv. A weak cation exchanger was used for capture. Elution using arginine suppressed protein aggregation and allowed a very good resolution with purity and product-recovery was above 90%. Free PEG was removed completely. The use of hydrophobic interaction chromatography (HIC) increased purity to 98%. Increasing the size of PEG from 5 to 30 kDa increased retention on HIC and redu…
