A U.S. Patent Application for “Selective Reduction of Proteins” was published by Seattle Genetics on April 16th, 2020. The present invention provides a method for making uncapped cysteine protein preparations, including uncapped engineered cysteine antibody preparations. The methods include, inter alia, contacting a reducing agent with engineered cysteine antibody molecules, each of the antibody molecules having at least one capped engineered cysteine residue and at least one interchain disulfide bond and reacting the reducing agent with the antibody molecules under conditions sufficient to uncap engineered cysteine residues and form cap byproducts… Learn More
