INTRODUCTION [0002] 1. Field of the Invention [0003] The present invention relates to the field of therapeutic antibodies, in particular to the field of therapeutic bi-specific antibodies. [0004] 2. Background of the Invention [0005] Bi-specific antibodies are capable of binding to two different epitopes. The epitopes can be on the same antigen, or each epitope can be on a different antigen. This feature of bi-specific antibodies makes them an attractive tool for various therapeutic applications where there is a therapeutic benefit to targeting or recruiting more than one molecule in the treatment of disease. A bi-specific antibody is formed by concomitant expression of two unique antibody heavy chains and two unique antibody light chains. Correctly forming bi-specific antibodies in a format that is similar to wild-type remains a challenge, since antibody heavy chains have evolved to bind antibody light chains in a relatively promiscuous manner. As a result of this promiscuous pairing, concomitant expression of two antibody heavy chains and two antibody light chains naturally leads to a scrambling of heavy chain-light chain pairings. This mispairing remains a major challenge for the generation of bi-specific therapeutics, where homogeneous pairing is an essential requirement for good manufacturability and biological efficacy. [0006] Several approaches have been described to prepare bi-specific antibodies in which specific antibody light chains or fragment pair with specific antibody heavy chains or fragments. A review of various approaches to address this problem can be found in Klein et al., (2012) mAbs 4:6, 1-11. International Patent Application No. PCT/EP2011/056388 (WO 2011/131746) describes an in vitro method for generating a heterodimeric protein in which asymmetrical mutations are introduced into the CH3 regions of two monospecific starting proteins in order to drive directional “Fab-arm” or “half-molecule” exchange between two monospecific IgG4- or IgG4-like antibodies upon incubation under reducing conditions. [0007] Schaefer et al. (Roche Diagnostics GmbH), describe a method to assemble two heavy and two light chains, derived from two existing antibodies, into human bivalent bi-specific IgG antibodies without use of artificial linkers (PNAS (2011) 108(27): 11187-11192). The method involves exchanging heavy chain and light chain domains within the antigen-binding fragment (Fab) of one half of the bi-specific antibody. [0008] Strop et al. (Rinat-Pfizer Inc.), describe a method of producing stable bi-specific antibodies by expressing and purifying two antibodies of interest separately, and then mixing them together under specified redox conditions (J. Mol. Biol. (2012) 420:204-19). [0009] Zhu et al. (Genentech) have engineered mutations in the V L /V H interface of a diabody construct consisting of variant domain antibody fragments completely devoid of constant domains, and generated a heterodimeric diabody (Protein Science (1997) 6:781-788). Similarly, Igawa et al. (Chugai) have also engineered mutations in the V L /V H interface of a single-chain diabody to promote selective expression and inhibit conformational isomerization of the diabody (Protein Engineering, Design & Selection (2010) 23:667-677). [0010] US Patent Publication No. 2009/0182127 (Novo Nordisk, Inc.) describes the generation of bi-specific antibodies by modifying amino acid residues at the Fc interface and at the C H1 :C L interface of light-heavy chain pairs that reduce the ability of the light chain of one pair to interact with the heavy chain of the other pair.

BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF THE FIGURES [0028] FIG. 1 provides a Table showing the preferential pairing of heterodimers, from antibody constructs described herein, in co-expression sets where amino acid modifications have been made to the V H or V L domains. [0029] FIG. 2 provides a Table showing the preferential pairing of heterodimers in co-expression sets where amino acid modifications have been made to the C H1 or C L domains. [0030] FIG. 3 provides a Table showing the thermal stability and affinity for antigen for selected preferentially paired or mispaired heterodimers from antibody constructs described herein. [0031] FIG. 4 provides thermal unfolding curves for selected heterodimers. [0032] FIG. 5A-D provides size exclusion chromatography profiles for selected heterodimers. DETAILED DESCRIPTION [0033] Provided herein are antibody constructs (also referred to as heterodimer pairs) comprising a first heterodimer and a second heterodimer wherein each heterodimer comprises an immunoglobulin heavy chain or fragment thereof and an immunoglobulin light chain. At least one of the heterodimers comprises one or more amino acid modifications in the immunoglobulin heavy chain constant domain 1 (C H1 ) and one or more amino acid modifications in the immunoglobulin light chain constant domain (C L ); one or more amino acid modifications in the immunoglobulin heavy chain variable domain (V H ) and one or more amino acid modifications in the immunoglobulin light chain variable domain (V L ); or a combination of the preceding amino acid modifications to both the constant and variable domains of the heavy and light chains. The amino acids that are modified are part of the interface between the light chain and heavy chain and are modified in order to create preferential pairing between each heavy chain and the desired light chain such that when the two heavy chains and two light chains of the heterodimer are co-expressed in a mammalian cell, the heavy chain of the first heterodimer preferentially pairs with one of the light chains rather than the other. Likewise, the heavy chain of the second heterodimer preferentially pairs with the second light chain rather than first. [0034] As noted above, specific combinations of the amino acid modifications described above promote preferential pairing of heavy chains with specific light chains, thus enabling bi-specific monoclonal antibody (Mab) expression to occur with negligible mispairing, and minimizing the need to purify the desired heterodimers from undesired, or mispaired products. The heterodimers exhibit comparable thermal stability to heterodimers that do not include the amino acid modifications, and also demonstrate binding affinity for antigen that is comparable to heterodimers that do not include the amino acid modifications. [0035] The first and second heterodimers, when co-expressed as a heterodimer pair, can be used to create bi-specific antibodies targeting two different therapeutic targets or targeting two distinct epitopes (overlapping or non-overlapping) within the same antigen. [0036] The invention further provides a method of preparing the heterodimer pairs according to the invention, by co-expressing the heterodimers in a mammalian cell.

Amino acid analogs refers to compounds that have the same basic chemical structure as a naturally occurring amino acid, i.e., an a carbon that is bound to a hydrogen, a carboxyl group, an amino group, and an R group, such as, homoserine, norleucine, methionine sulfoxide, methionine methyl sulfonium. Such analogs have modified R groups (such as, norleucine) or modified peptide backbones, but retain the same basic chemical structure as a naturally occurring amino acid. Reference to an amino acid includes, for example, naturally occurring proteogenic L-amino acids; D-amino acids, chemically modified amino acids such as amino acid variants and derivatives; naturally occurring non-proteogenic amino acids such as β-alanine, ornithine, etc.; and chemically synthesized compounds having properties known in the art to be characteristic of amino acids. Examples of non-naturally occurring amino acids include, but are not limited to, α-methyl amino acids (e.g. α-methyl alanine), D-amino acids, histidine-like amino acids (e.g., 2-amino-histidine, β-hydroxy-histidine, homohistidine), amino acids having an extra methylene in the side chain (“homo” amino acids), and amino acids in which a carboxylic acid functional group in the side chain is replaced with a sulfonic acid group (e.g., cysteic acid). The incorporation of non-natural amino acids, including synthetic non-native amino acids, substituted amino acids, or one or more D-amino acids into the proteins of the present invention may be advantageous in a number of different ways. D-amino acid-containing peptides, etc., exhibit increased stability in vitro or in vivo compared to L-amino acid-containing counterparts. Thus, the construction of peptides, etc., incorporating D-amino acids can be particularly useful when greater intracellular stability is desired or required. More specifically, D-peptides, etc., are resistant to endogenous peptidases and proteases, thereby providing improved bioavailability of the molecule, and prolonged lifetimes in vivo when such properties are desirable. Additionally, D-peptides, etc., cannot be processed efficiently for major histocompatibility complex class II-restricted presentation to T helper cells, and are therefore, less likely to induce humoral immune responses in the whole organism. [0048] Amino acids are referred to herein by either their commonly known three letter symbols or by the one-letter symbols recommended by the IUPAC-IUB Biochemical Nomenclature Commission. Nucleotides, likewise, may be referred to by their commonly accepted single-letter codes. [0049] “Conservatively modified variants” applies to both amino acid and nucleic acid sequences. With respect to particular nucleic acid sequences, “conservatively modified variants” refers to those nucleic acids which encode identical or essentially identical amino acid sequences, or where the nucleic acid does not encode an amino acid sequence, to essentially identical sequences. Because of the degeneracy of the genetic code, a large number of functionally identical nucleic acids encode any given protein. For instance, the codons GCA, GCC, GCG and GCU all encode the amino acid alanine. Thus, at every position where an alanine is specified by a codon, the codon can be altered to any of the corresponding codons described without altering the encoded polypeptide. Such nucleic acid variations are “silent variations,” which are one species of conservatively modified variations. Every nucleic acid sequence herein which encodes a polypeptide also describes every possible silent variation of the nucleic acid. One of ordinary skill in the art will recognize that each codon in a nucleic acid (except AUG, which is ordinarily the only codon for methionine, and TGG, which is ordinarily the only codon for tryptophan) can be modified to yield a functionally identical molecule. Accordingly, each silent variation of a nucleic acid which encodes a polypeptide is implicit in each described sequence. [0050] As to amino acid sequences, one of ordinary skill in the art will recognize that individual substitutions, deletions or additions to a nucleic acid, peptide, polypeptide, or protein sequence which alters, adds or deletes a single amino acid or a small percentage of amino acids in the encoded sequence is a “conservatively modified variant” where the alteration results in the deletion of an amino acid, addition of an amino acid, or substitution of an amino acid with a chemically similar amino acid. Conservative substitution tables providing functionally similar amino acids are known to those of ordinary skill in the art. Such conservatively modified variants are in addition to and do not exclude polymorphic variants, interspecies homologs, and alleles of the invention. [0051] Conservative substitution tables providing functionally similar amino acids are known to those of ordinary skill in the art. The following eight groups each contain amino acids that are conservative substitutions for one another: 1) Alanine (A), Glycine (G); 2) Aspartic acid (D), Glutamic acid (E); 3) Asparagine (N), Glutamine (Q); 4) Arginine (R), Lysine (K); 5) Isoleucine (I), Leucine (L), Methionine (M), Valine (V); 6) Phenylalanine (F), Tyrosine (Y), Tryptophan (W); 7) Serine (S), Threonine (T); and 8) Cysteine (C), Methionine (M) (see, e.g., Creighton, Proteins: Structures and Molecular Properties (WH Freeman & Co.; 2nd edition (December 1993). [0060] The terms “identical” or percent “identity,” in the context of two or more nucleic acids or polypeptide sequences, refer to two or more sequences or subsequences that are the same. Sequences are “substantially identical” if they have a percentage of amino acid residues or nucleotides that are the same (i.e., about 50% identity, about 55% identity, 60% identity, about 65%, about 70%, about 75%, about 80%, about 85%, about 90%, about 95% or about 99% identity over a specified region), when compared and aligned for maximum correspondence over a comparison window, or designated region as measured using one of the following sequence comparison algorithms (or other algorithms available to persons of ordinary skill in the art) or by manual alignment and visual inspection. This definition also refers to the complement of a test sequence. The identity can exist over a region that is at least about 50 amino acids or nucleotides in length, or over a region that is 75-100 amino acids or nucleotides in length, or, where not specified, across the entire sequence of a polynucleotide or polypeptide. A polynucleotide encoding a polypeptide of the present invention, including homologs from species other than human, may be obtained by a process comprising the steps of screening a library under stringent hybridization conditions with a labeled probe having a polynucleotide sequence of the invention or a fragment thereof, and isolating full-length cDNA and genomic clones containing said polynucleotide sequence. Such hybridization techniques are well known to the skilled artisan. [0061] A derivative, or a variant of a polypeptide is said to share “homology” or be “homologous” with the peptide if the amino acid sequences of the derivative or variant has at least 50% identity with a 100 amino acid sequence from the original peptide. In certain embodiments, the derivative or variant is at least 75% the same as that of either the peptide or a fragment of the peptide having the same number of amino acid residues as the derivative. In certain embodiments, the derivative or variant is at least 85% the same as that of either the peptide or a fragment of the peptide having the same number of amino acid residues as the derivative. In certain embodiments, the amino acid sequence of the derivative is at least 90% the same as the peptide or a fragment of the peptide having the same number of amino acid residues as the derivative. In some embodiments, the amino acid sequence of the derivative is at least 95% the same as the peptide or a fragment of the peptide having the same number of amino acid residues as the derivative. In certain embodiments, the derivative or variant is at least 99% the same as that of either the peptide or a fragment of the peptide having the same number of amino acid residues as the derivative. [0062] As used herein, “isolated” polypeptide or immunoglobulin construct means a construct or polypeptide that has been identified and separated and/or recovered from a component of its natural cell culture environment. Contaminant components of its natural environment are materials that would interfere with diagnostic or therapeutic uses for the heteromultimer, and may include enzymes, hormones, and other proteinaceous or non-proteinaceous solutes. [0063] In certain embodiments, as used herein, “isolated” heterodimer, antibody constructs or antibody constructs described herein comprise heterodimer pairs or “isolated” heterodimer pairs that comprise a heterodimer or heterodimer pair that has been identified and separated and/or recovered from a component of its natural cell culture environment. Contaminant components of its natural environment are materials that would interfere with diagnostic or therapeutic uses for the heterodimer or antibody construct, and may include enzymes, hormones, and other proteinaceous or non-proteinaceous solutes. [0064] The heterodimers and antibody constructs and heterodimer pairs are generally purified to substantial homogeneity. The phrases “substantially homogeneous”, “substantially homogeneous form” and “substantial homogeneity” are used to indicate that the product is substantially devoid of by-products originated from undesired polypeptide combinations (e.g. homodimers). Expressed in terms of purity, substantial homogeneity means that the amount of by-products does not exceed 10%, and preferably is below 5%, more preferably below 1%, most preferably below 0.5%, wherein the percentages are by weight. [0065] The phrase “selectively (or specifically) hybridizes to” refers to the binding, duplexing, or hybridizing of a molecule only to a particular nucleotide sequence under stringent hybridization conditions when that sequence is present in a complex mixture (including but not limited to, total cellular or library DNA or RNA). [0066] Terms understood by those in the art of antibody technology are each given the meaning acquired in the art, unless expressly defined differently herein. Antibodies are known to have variable regions, a hinge region, and constant domains. Immunoglobulin structure and function are reviewed, for example, in Harlow et al, Eds., Antibodies: A Laboratory Manual, Chapter 14 (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Cold Spring Harbor, 1988). [0067] As used herein, the terms “antibody” and “immunoglobulin” are used interchangeable. An “antibody” or “immunoglobulin” refers to a polypeptide substantially encoded by an immunoglobulin gene or immunoglobulin genes, or fragments thereof, which specifically bind and recognize an analyte (antigen). The recognized immunoglobulin genes include the kappa, lambda, alpha, gamma, delta, epsilon and mu constant region genes, as well as the myriad immunoglobulin variable region genes. Light chains are classified as either kappa or lambda. Heavy chains are classified as gamma, mu, alpha, delta, or epsilon, which in turn define the immunoglobulin isotypes, IgG, IgM, IgA, IgD, and IgE, respectively. Further, the antibody can belong to one of a number of subtypes, for instance, the IgG can belong to the IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, or IgG4 isotypes. [0068] An exemplary immunoglobulin (antibody) structural unit is composed of two pairs of polypeptide chains, each pair having one “light” (about 25 kD) and one “heavy” chain (about 50-70 kD). The N-terminus of each chain defines a variable region of about 100 to 110 or more amino acids primarily responsible for antigen recognition. The terms variable light chain (VL) and variable heavy chain (VH) refer to these light and heavy chains respectively. In certain embodiments, the immunoglobulin constructs comprise at least one immunoglobulin domain from IgG, IgM, IgA, IgD, or IgE connected to a therapeutic polypeptide. In some embodiments, the immunoglobulin domain comprised in an immunoglobulin construct provided herein, is from an immunoglobulin based construct such as a diabody, or a nanobody. In certain embodiments, the immunoglobulin constructs described herein comprise at least one immunoglobulin domain from a heavy chain antibody such as a camelid antibody. In certain embodiments, the immunoglobulin constructs provided herein comprise at least one immunoglobulin domain from a mammalian antibody such as a bovine antibody, a human antibody, a camelid antibody, a mouse antibody or any chimeric antibody. [0069] The term “preferential pairing” is used herein in relation to the pairing of immunoglobulin heavy chains with immunoglobulin light chains in the antibody constructs and heterodimer pairs described herein. It is known in the art that if an immunoglobulin heavy chain (H1) is co-expressed with two different immunoglobulin light chains (L1 and L2), typically, H1 will pair equally with each of the light chains, resulting in an approximate 50:50 mixture of H1 paired with L1 and H1 paired with L2. In this context, “preferential pairing” would occur between, for example, H1 and L1, if the amount of the H1-L1 heavy chain-light chain heterodimer was greater than the amount of the H1-L2 heterodimer when H1 is co-expressed with both L1 and L2. Thus, in this case, H1 preferentially pairs with L1 relative to L2. [0070] Antibody heavy chains pair with antibody light chains and meet at an “interface.” The “interface” comprises those “contact” amino acid residues in the first polypeptide that interact with one or more “contact” amino acid residues in the interface of the second polypeptide. As used herein, the interface comprises the CH3 domain of an Fc region that preferably is derived from an IgG antibody and most preferably a human IgG1 antibody. [0071] The immunoglobulin/antibody heavy chain that is to be associated with an immunoglobulin/antibody light chain meet at an “interface.” The immunoglobulin light chain associates with the immunoglobulin heavy chain via the “interface”. The “interface” comprises those “contact” amino acid residues in the immunoglobulin heavy chain that interact with one or more “contact” amino acid residues in the interface of the immunoglobulin light chain. As used herein, the interface comprises the V H and C H1 domains of the immunoglobulin heavy chain and the V L and C L domains of the immunoglobulin light chain. The “interface” preferably is derived from an IgG antibody and most preferably a human IgG1 antibody. [0072] The term “amino acid modifications” as used herein includes, but is not limited to, amino acid insertions, deletions, substitutions, and rearrangements. [0073] It will be understood that the numbering of the V L , V H , C L , and C H1 amino acid residues is that of the EU index as in Kabat et al., 1991, NIH Publication 91-3242, National Technical Information Service, Springfield, Va. The “EU index as set forth in Kabat” refers to the EU index numbering of the human IgG1 Kabat antibody. A. Antibody Constructs/Heterodimer Pairs) [0074] The antibody constructs described herein comprise a first heterodimer and a second heterodimer; each heterodimer obtained by pairing an immunoglobulin heavy chain with an immunoglobulin light chain. The structure and organization of the constant and variable domains of immunoglobulin heavy and light chains are well known in the art. Immunoglobulin heavy chains comprise one variable (V H ) domain, and three constant domains, C H1 , C H2 , and C H3 . Immunoglobulin light chains comprise one variable (V L ) domain and one constant (C L ) domain. [0075] The antibody constructs and heterodimer pairs described herein comprise a first heterodimer and a second heterodimer, each heterodimer comprising an immunoglobulin/antibody heavy chain or fragment thereof having at least a V H and C H1 domain, and an immunoglobulin/antibody light chain having a V L domain and a C L domain. In one embodiment, both heterodimers of the heterodimer pair and antibody construct comprise a full-length immunoglobulin heavy chain. In another embodiment, both heterodimers of the heterodimer pair or antibody construct comprise a fragment of the immunoglobulin heavy chain that includes at least a V H and a C H1 domain. In one embodiment, both heterodimers of the heterodimer pair comprise an amino terminal fragment of the immunoglobulin heavy chain that comprises at least a V H and a C H1 domain. In another embodiment, both heterodimers of the heterodimer pair comprise a carboxy terminal fragment of the immunoglobulin heavy chain that comprises at least a V H and a C H1 domain. [0076] Each heterodimer of the heterodimer pair binds specifically to an antigen or epitope. In one embodiment, the immunoglobulin heavy chain and the immunoglobulin light chain of each heterodimer is derived or engineered from a known therapeutic antibody. A therapeutic antibody is one that effective in treating a disease or disorder in a mammal with or predisposed to the disease or disorder. Suitable therapeutic antibodies from which each heterodimer can be derived include, but are not limited to abagovomab, adalimumab, alemtuzumab, aurograb, bapineuzumab, basiliximab, belimumab, bevacizumab, briakinumab, canakinumab, catumaxomab, certolizumab pegol, cetuximab, daclizumab, denosumab, efalizumab, galiximab, gemtuzumab ozogamicin, golimumab, ibritumomab tiuxetan, infliximab, ipilimumab, lumiliximab, mepolizumab, motavizumab, muromonab, mycograb, natalizumab, nimotuzumab, ocrelizumab, ofatumumab, omalizumab, palivizumab, panitumumab, pertuzumab, ranibizumab, reslizumab, rituximab, teplizumab, tocilizumab/atlizumab, tositumomab, trastuzumab, Proxinium™, Rencarex™, ustekinumab, and zalutumumab.

In another embodiment, the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of the heterodimer are derived from an IgD isotype. [0080] Human IgG antibodies can also be divided into the subclasses IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, and IgG4. Thus, in some embodiments, it is contemplated that the heterodimer immunoglobulin heavy and light chains can be derived from an IgG1, IgG2, IgG3, or IgG4 subclass of antibodies.

For example, in one embodiment, the first heterodimer binds specifically to Tissue Factor, while the second heterodimer binds specifically to antigen Her2(ErbB2). In another embodiment, the first heterodimer binds specifically to a molecule or cancer antigen described above. In another embodiment, the second heterodimer binds specifically to a molecule or cancer antigen described above. In yet another embodiment, the first heterodimer binds specifically to antigen CD3, while the second heterodimer binds specifically to antigen CD19. A.1 Amino Acid Modifications to Heterodimer Immunoglobulin Heavy and Light Chains [0082] At least one of the heterodimers of the heterodimer pair comprises one or more amino acid modifications to their immunoglobulin heavy and/or immunoglobulin light chains such that when the two heavy chains and two light chains of the heterodimer pair are co-expressed in a mammalian cell, the heavy chain of the first heterodimer preferentially pairs with one of the light chains rather than the other. Likewise, the heavy chain of the second heterodimer preferentially pairs with the second light chain rather than the first. This preferential pairing of one heavy chain with one of two co-expressed light chains is based on co-expression sets comprising one immunoglobulin heavy chain and two immunoglobulin light chains where the immunoglobulin heavy chain preferentially pairs with one of the two immunoglobulin light chains over the other when the immunoglobulin heavy chain is co-expressed with both immunoglobulin light chains. Thus, a co-expression set comprises one immunoglobulin heavy chain, a first immunoglobulin light chain and a second immunoglobulin light chain. [0083] As indicated above, in some embodiments, the immunoglobulin heavy chain and the immunoglobulin light chain of each heterodimer is derived or engineered from a known therapeutic antibody, or from an antibody that binds various molecules or cancer antigens. The amino acid and nucleotide sequences of numerous such molecules are readily available (see for example, GenBank: AJ308087.1 (Humanized anti-human tissue factor antibody D3H44 light chain variable region and CL domain); GenBank: AJ308086.1 (humanized anti-human tissue factor antibody D3H44 heavy chain variable region and CH1 domain); GenBank: HC359025.1 (Pertuzumab Fab light chain gene module); GenBank: HC359024.1 (Pertuzumab Fab heavy chain gene module); GenBank: GM685465.1 (Antibody Trastuzumab (=Herceptin)—wildtype; light chain); GenBank: GM685463.1 (Antibody Trastuzumab (=Herceptin)—wildtype; heavy chain); GenBank: GM685466.1 (Antibody Trastuzumab (=Herceptin)—GC-optimized light chain); and GenBank: GM685464.1 (Antibody Trastuzumab (=Herceptin)—GC-optimized heavy chain. [0084] In one embodiment, the one or more amino acid modifications comprise one or more amino acid substitutions. [0085] In one embodiment, the preferential pairing demonstrated in the co-expression set is established by modifying one or more amino acids that are part of the interface between the light chain and heavy chain. In one embodiment, the preferential pairing demonstrated in the co-expression set is established by modifying one or more amino acids in at least one of the C H1 domain of the immunoglobulin heavy chain, the C L domain of a first immunoglobulin light chain and the C L domain of the second immunoglobulin light chain. [0086] In one embodiment the one or amino acid modifications are limited to the conserved framework residues of the variable (V H , V L ) and constant (C H1 , C L ) domains as indicated by the Kabat numbering of residues. For example, Almagro [Frontiers In Bioscience (2008) 13: 1619-1633] provides a definition of the framework residues on the basis of Kabat, Chotia, and IMGT numbering schemes. [0087] In one embodiment, at least one of the heterodimers comprises one or more mutations introduced in the immunoglobulin heavy and immunoglobulin light chains that are complementary to each other. Complementarity at the heavy and light chain interface can be achieved on the basis of steric and hydrophobic contacts, electrostatic/charge interactions or a combination of the variety of interactions. The complementarity between protein surfaces is broadly described in the literature in terms of lock and key fit, knob into hole, protrusion and cavity, donor and acceptor etc., all implying the nature of structural and chemical match between the two interacting surfaces. In one embodiment, at least one of the heterodimers comprises one or more mutations where the mutations introduced in the immunoglobulin heavy and immunoglobulin light chains introduce a new hydrogen bond across the light and heavy chain at the interface.

[0103] The V H :V L and C H1 :C L interface residues in the interface between immunoglobulin heavy and light chains are relatively well conserved (Padlan et al., 1986, Mol. Immunol. 23(9): 951-960). This sequence conservation, a result of evolutionary constraints, increases the likelihood that functionally active antibody binding domains will be formed during combinatorial pairing of light and heavy chains. As a result of this sequence conservation, it follows that sequence modifications in the specific examples noted above for D3H44, which drive preferential pairing, should also readily transfer to other heavy and light chain pairs (or heterodimers) with approximately equivalent results being obtained with respect to preferential pairing. This is particularly the case for the C H1 and C L domains. There is, however, some sequence variability at the antigen-binding site with respect to CDR (complementarity-determining regions) loop residues (and length), particularly for CDR-H3. Thus, in one embodiment, the heterodimer pairs according to the invention comprise heterodimers where at least one heterodimer comprises one or more amino acid modifications in the V H and/or V L domains that lie distal to the CDR loops when the amino acid sequence of the antigen-binding site is significantly different from that of the D3H44 antibody. In another embodiment, the heterodimer pairs according to the invention comprise heterodimers where at least one heterodimer comprises one or more amino acid modifications in the V H and/or V L domains that lie proximal or distal to the CDR loops, when the amino acid sequence of the antigen-binding site is substantially the same as that of the D3H44 antibody. [0104] In one embodiment, the amino acid modifications described herein are transferable to the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of antibodies based on human or humanized IgG1/κ. Non-limiting examples of such IgG1/κ chains include Ofatumumab (for human) or Trastuzumab, Pertuzumab or Bevacizumab (for humanized). [0105] In another embodiment, the amino acid modifications described herein are transferable to the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of antibodies which comprise commonly used V H and V L subgroups. Non-limiting examples of such antibodies include Peruzumab. [0106] In one embodiment, the amino acid modifications described herein are transferable to the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of antibodies having a framework close to germline. Examples of such antibodies include Obinutuzumab. [0107] In one embodiment, the amino acid modifications described herein are transferable to the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of antibodies having a V H :V L interdomain angle close to observed average for heavy and light chain pairs. An example of this type of antibody includes, but is not limited to Pertuzumab. In another embodiment, the amino acid modifications described herein are transferable to the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of antibodies having canonical C L and C H1 domains. Suitable examples of such antibodies include, but are not limited to Trastuzumab.

[0125] In some embodiments, certain subsets of the amino acid modifications described herein are utilized in variant domains in antibody constructs provided above. A.3 Preferential Pairing [0126] As described above, at least one heterodimer of the antibody construct/heterodimer pairs according to the invention comprise one or more amino acid modifications to their immunoglobulin heavy and/or immunoglobulin light chains such that when the two heavy chains (H1 and H2) and two light chains (L1 and L2) of the heterodimer pair are co-expressed in a mammalian cell, the heavy chain of the one heterodimer, for example H1, preferentially pairs with one of the light chains, for example L1, rather than the other light chain, L2, and the heavy chain of the other heterodimer, H2, preferentially pairs with the light chain, L2, rather than the light chain L1. In other words, the desired, preferential pairing is considered to be between H1 and L1, and between H2 and L2. Preferential pairing between, for example, H1 and L1 is considered to occur if the yield of the H1/L1 heterodimer is greater than the yield of the mispaired H1/L2 heterodimer when H1 is co-expressed with L1 and L2. Likewise, preferential pairing between H2 and L2 is considered to occur if the yield of the H2/L2 heterodimer is greater than the yield of the mispaired H2/L1 heterodimer when H2 is co-expressed with L1 and L2. In this context, an heterodimer comprising H1 and L1, or H2 and L2, is referred to herein as a preferentially paired, correctly paired, or desired heterodimer, while an heterodimer comprising H1 and L2, or H2 and L1, is referred to herein as a mispaired heterodimer. [0127] Thus, in one embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the relative yield of the desired heterodimer is greater than 55%. In another embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the relative yield of the desired heterodimer is greater than 60%. In another embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the relative yield of the desired heterodimer is greater than 70%. In another embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the relative yield of the desired heterodimer is greater than 80%. In another embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the relative yield of the desired heterodimer is greater than 90%. In another embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the relative yield of the desired heterodimer is greater than 95%. [0128] In the above example, preferential pairing between H1/L1 is considered to occur if the amount of the desired H1/L1 heterodimer is greater than the amount of the mispaired H1/L2 heterodimer when H1 is co-expressed with L1 and L2. Similarly, preferential pairing between H2/L2 is considered to occur if the amount of the desired H2/L2 heterodimer is greater than the amount of the mispaired H2/L2 heterodimer when H2 is co-expressed with L1 and L2. Thus, in one embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the ratio of the desired heterodimer to the mispaired heterodimer is greater than 1.25:1. In one embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the ratio of the desired heterodimer to the mispaired heterodimer is greater than 1.5:1. In another embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the ratio of the desired heterodimer to the mispaired heterodimer is greater than 2:1. In another embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the ratio of the desired heterodimer to the mispaired heterodimer is greater than 3:1. In another embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the ratio of the desired heterodimer to the mispaired heterodimer is greater than 5:1. In another embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the ratio of the desired heterodimer to the mispaired heterodimer is greater than 10:1. In another embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the ratio of the desired heterodimer to the mispaired heterodimer is greater than 25:1. In another embodiment, when one immunoglobulin heavy chain of a heterodimer is co-expressed with two immunoglobulin light chains, the ratio of the desired heterodimer to the mispaired heterodimer is greater than 50:1. A.4 Thermal Stability of Heterodimers [0129] In one embodiment, each heterodimer of the heterodimer pair according to the invention has a thermal stability that is comparable to that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains but without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In one embodiment, thermal stability is determined by measurement of melting temperature, or Tm. Thus, in one embodiment, the thermal stability of a heterodimer according to the invention is within about 10° C. of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. Thus, in one embodiment, the thermal stability of a heterodimer according to the invention is within about 5° C. of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In another embodiment, the thermal stability of a heterodimer according to the invention is within about 3° C. of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In another embodiment, the thermal stability of a heterodimer according to the invention is within about 2° C. of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In another embodiment, the thermal stability of a heterodimer according to the invention is within about 1.5° C. of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In another embodiment, the thermal stability of a heterodimer according to the invention is within about 1° C. of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In another embodiment, the thermal stability of a heterodimer according to the invention is within about 0.5° C. of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In another embodiment, the thermal stability of a heterodimer according to the invention is within about 0.25° C. of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. A.5 Affinity of Heterodimers for Antigen [0130] In one embodiment, each heterodimer of the heterodimer pair has an affinity for its respective antigen that is the same or comparable to that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains but without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In one embodiment, a heterodimer of the heterodimer pair has an affinity for its respective antigen that is within about 50 fold, or one order of magnitude, of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In one embodiment, a heterodimer of the heterodimer pair has an affinity for its respective antigen that is within about 25 fold, or one order of magnitude, of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In one embodiment, a heterodimer of the heterodimer pair has an affinity for its respective antigen that is within about 10 fold, or one order of magnitude, of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In another embodiment, a heterodimer of the heterodimer pair has an affinity for its respective antigen that is within about 5 fold of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In another embodiment, a heterodimer of the heterodimer pair has an affinity for its respective antigen that is within about 2.5 fold of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In another embodiment, a heterodimer of the heterodimer pair has an affinity for its respective antigen that is within about 2 fold of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In another embodiment, a heterodimer of the heterodimer pair has an affinity for its respective antigen that is within about 1.5 fold of that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. In another embodiment, a heterodimer of the heterodimer pair has an affinity for its respective antigen that is within about the same as that of a heterodimer comprising the same immunoglobulin heavy and light chains without the amino acid modifications to the C H1 , C L , V H , or V L domains described herein. [0000] A.6 Combination with Other Platforms [0131] It is contemplated that additional amino acid modifications can be made to the immunoglobulin heavy chains in order to increase the level of preferential pairing, and/or the thermal stability of the heterodimer pairs. For example, additional amino acid modifications can be made to the immunoglobulin heavy chain Fc domain in order to drive preferential pairing between heterodimer pairs relative to homodimer pairs. Such amino acid modifications are known in the art and include, for example, those described, in US Patent Publication No. 2012/0149876. Alternatively, alternate strategies for driving preferential pairing between heterodimer pairs relative to homodimer pairs such as, for example, “knobs into holes”, charged residues with ionic interactions, and strand-exchange engineered domain (SEED) technologies can also be employed. The latter strategies have been described in the art and are reviewed in Klein et al, supra. A.7 Additional Optional Modifications [0132] In one embodiment, the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of the heterodimer pairs according to the invention may be further modified (i.e., by the covalent attachment of various types of molecules) such that covalent attachment does not interfere with the preferential pairing between heavy chain and light chains or affect the ability of the heterodimer to bind to its antigen, or affect its stability. Such modification include, for example, but not by way of limitation, glycosylation, acetylation, pegylation, phosphorylation, amidation, derivatization by known protecting/blocking groups, proteolytic cleavage, linkage to a cellular ligand or other protein, etc. Any of numerous chemical modifications may be carried out by known techniques, including, but not limited to, specific chemical cleavage, acetylation, formylation, metabolic synthesis of tunicamycin, etc. [0133] In another embodiment, the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of the heterodimer pairs according to the invention may be conjugated to a therapeutic agent or drug moiety that modifies a given biological response. Therapeutic agents or drug moieties are not to be construed as limited to classical chemical therapeutic agents. For example, the drug moiety may be a protein or polypeptide possessing a desired biological activity. Such proteins may include, for example, a toxin such as abrin, ricin A, Onconase (or another cytotoxic RNase), pseudomonas exotoxin, cholera toxin, or diphtheria toxin; a protein such as tumor necrosis factor, .alpha.-interferon, .beta.-interferon, nerve growth factor, platelet derived growth factor, tissue plasminogen activator, an apoptotic agent, e.g., TNF-.alpha., TNF-.beta., AIM I (see, International Publication No. WO 97/33899), AIM II (see, International Publication No. WO 97/34911), Fas Ligand (Takahashi et al., 1994, J. Immunol., 6:1567), and VEGI (see, International Publication No. WO 99/23105), a thrombotic agent or an anti-angiogenic agent, e.g., angiostatin or endostatin; or, a biological response modifier such as, for example, a lymphokine (e.g., interleukin-1 (“IL-1”), interleukin-2 (“IL-2”), interleukin-6 (“IL-6”), granulocyte macrophage colony stimulating factor (“GM-CSF”), and granulocyte colony stimulating factor (“G-CSF”)), or a growth factor (e.g., growth hormone (“GH”)). [0134] Moreover, in an alternate embodiment, an antibody can be conjugated to therapeutic moieties such as a radioactive materials or macrocyclic chelators useful for conjugating radiometal ions (see above for examples of radioactive materials). In certain embodiments, the macrocyclic chelator is 1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-N,N′,N″,N″-tetraacetic acid (DOTA) which can be attached to the antibody via a linker molecule. Such linker molecules are commonly known in the art and described in Denardo et al., 1998, Clin Cancer Res. 4:2483; Peterson et al., 1999, Bioconjug. Chem. 10:553; and Zimmerman et al., 1999, Nucl. Med. Biol. 26:943. [0135] In some embodiments, the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of the heterodimer are expressed as fusion proteins comprising a tag to facilitate purification and/or testing etc. As referred to herein, a “tag” is any added series of amino acids which are provided in a protein at either the C-terminus, the N-terminus, or internally that contributes to the identification or purification of the protein. Suitable tags include but are not limited to tags known to those skilled in the art to be useful in purification and/or testing such as albumin binding domain, His tag, FLAG tag, glutathione-s-transferase, haemaglutinin (HA) and maltose binding protein. Such tagged proteins may also be engineered to comprise a cleavage site, such as a thrombin, enterokinase or factor X cleavage site, for ease of removal, of the tag before, during or after purification. [0136] In some embodiments, the cysteine residues at the bottom of the Fab domain (position 219)in the light and heavy chain that form an interchain disulphide bond can be modified to serine. B. Methods of Preparing Heterodimer Pairs [0137] As described above, the heterodimer pairs according to the invention comprise a first heterodimer and a second heterodimer, each heterodimer comprising an immunoglobulin heavy chain or fragment thereof having at least a V H and C H1 domain, and an immunoglobulin light chain having a V L domain and a C L domain. The immunoglobulin heavy chains and immunoglobulin light chains of the heterodimer can readily be prepared using recombinant DNA technology known in the art. Standard techniques such as, for example, those described in Sambrook and Russell, Molecular Cloning: A Laboratory Manual (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., 3rd ed., 2001); Sambrook et al., Molecular Cloning: A Laboratory Manual (Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press, Cold Spring Harbor, N.Y., 2nd ed., 1989); Short Protocols in Molecular Biology (Ausubel et al., John Wiley and Sons, New York, 4th ed., 1999); and Glick and Pasternak, Molecular Biotechnology: Principles and Applications of Recombinant DNA (ASM Press, Washington, D.C., 2nd ed., 1998) can be used for recombinant nucleic acid methods, nucleic acid synthesis, cell culture, transgene incorporation, and recombinant protein expression. Alternatively, the heterodimers and heterodimer pairs according to the invention can be chemically synthesized. [0138] The nucleic acid and amino acid sequences of the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of the antibodies from which the heterodimers are derived are either known in the art or can be readily determined using nucleic acid and/or protein sequencing methods. Methods of genetically fusing the tags described herein to the immunoglobulin heavy and/or light chains are known in the art, and some are described below and in the Examples. [0139] For example, methods of expressing and co-expressing immunoglobulin heavy and light chains in a host cell are well known in the art. In addition, methods of tagging heavy chains and/or light chains using recombinant DNA technology are also well known in the art. Expression vectors and host cells suitable for expression of the heavy and light chains are also well known in the art as described below. B.1 Vectors and Host Cells [0140] Recombinant expression of heavy and light chains requires construction of an expression vector containing a polynucleotide that encodes the heavy or light chain (e.g., antibody, or fusion protein). Once a polynucleotide encoding the heavy or light chain has been obtained, the vector for the production of the heavy or light chain may be produced by recombinant DNA technology using techniques well known in the art. Thus, methods for preparing a protein by expressing a polynucleotide containing the heavy or light chain encoding nucleotide sequence are described herein. Methods that are well known to those skilled in the art can be used to construct expression vectors containing heavy or light chain coding sequences and appropriate transcriptional and translational control signals. These methods include, for example, in vitro recombinant DNA techniques, synthetic techniques, and in vivo genetic recombination. The invention, thus, provides replicable vectors comprising a nucleotide sequence encoding heavy or light chains, operably linked to a promoter. [0141] The expression vector is transferred to a host cell by conventional techniques and the transfected cells are then cultured by conventional techniques to produce the modified heavy or light chains for use in the method of the invention. In specific embodiments the heavy and light chains for use in the method are co-expressed in the host cell for expression of the entire immunoglobulin molecule, as detailed below. [0142] A variety of host-expression vector systems may be utilized to express the modified heavy and light chains. Such host-expression systems represent vehicles by which the coding sequences of interest may be produced and subsequently purified, but also represent cells which may, when transformed or transfected with the appropriate nucleotide coding sequences, express the modified heavy and light chains in situ. These include but are not limited to microorganisms such as bacteria (e.g., E. coli and B. subtilis ) transformed with recombinant bacteriophage DNA, plasmid DNA or cosmid DNA expression vectors containing the modified heavy and light chain coding sequences; yeast (e.g., Saccharomyces Pichia ) transformed with recombinant yeast expression vectors containing modified heavy and light chain coding sequences; insect cell systems infected with recombinant virus expression vectors (e.g., baculovirus) containing modified heavy and light chain coding sequences; plant cell systems infected with recombinant virus expression vectors (e.g., cauliflower mosaic virus, CaMV; tobacco mosaic virus, TMV) or transformed with recombinant plasmid expression vectors (e.g., Ti plasmid) containing modified heavy and light chain coding sequences; or mammalian cell systems (e.g., COS, CHO, BHK, HEK-293, NSO, and 3T3 cells) harboring recombinant expression constructs containing promoters derived from the genome of mammalian cells (e.g., metallothionein promoter) or from mammalian viruses (e.g., the adenovirus late promoter; the vaccinia virus 7.5K promoter). In certain embodiments, bacterial cells such as Escherichia coli, or eukaryotic cells, are used for the expression of modified heavy and light chains, which is a recombinant antibody or fusion protein molecules. For example, mammalian cells such as Chinese hamster ovary cells (CHO), in conjunction with a vector such as the major intermediate early gene promoter element from human cytomegalovirus is an effective expression system for antibodies (Foecking et al., 1986, Gene 45:101 ; and Cockett et al., 1990, Bio/Technology 8:2). In a specific embodiment, the expression of nucleotide sequences encoding the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of each heterodimer is regulated by a constitutive promoter, inducible promoter or tissue specific promoter. [0143] In mammalian host cells, a number of viral-based expression systems may be utilized. In cases where an adenovirus is used as an expression vector, the modified heavy and light chain coding sequences of interest may be ligated to an adenovirus transcription/translation control complex, e.g., the late promoter and tripartite leader sequence. This chimeric gene may then be inserted in the adenovirus genome by in vitro or in vivo recombination. Insertion in a non-essential region of the viral genome (e.g., region E1 or E3) will result in a recombinant virus that is viable and capable of expressing the modified heavy and light chains in infected hosts (e.g., see Logan & Shenk, 1984, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 81:355-359). Specific initiation signals may also be required for efficient translation of inserted antibody coding sequences. These signals include the ATG initiation codon and adjacent sequences. Furthermore, the initiation codon must be in phase with the reading frame of the desired coding sequence to ensure translation of the entire insert. These exogenous translational control signals and initiation codons can be of a variety of origins, both natural and synthetic. The efficiency of expression may be enhanced by the inclusion of appropriate transcription enhancer elements, transcription terminators, etc. (see, e.g., Bittner et al., 1987, Methods in Enzymol. 153:516-544). [0144] The expression of the immunoglobulin heavy and light chains of the heterodimers may be controlled by any promoter or enhancer element known in the art. Promoters which may be used to control the expression of the gene encoding modified heavy and light chains (e.g., antibody or fusion protein) include, but are not limited to, the SV40 early promoter region (Bernoist and Chambon, 1981, Nature 290:304-310), the promoter contained in the 3′ long terminal repeat of Rous sarcoma virus (Yamamoto, et al., 1980, Cell 22:787-797), the herpes thymidine kinase promoter (Wagner et al., 1981 , Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 78.1441-1445), the regulatory sequences of the metallothionein gene (Brinster et al., 1982, Nature 296:39-42), the tetracycline (Tet) promoter (Gossen et al., 1995, Proc. Nat. Acad. Sci. USA 89:5547-5551); prokaryotic expression vectors such as the β-lactamase promoter (Villa-Kamaroff et al, 1978, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 75:3727-3731), or the tac promoter (DeBoer et al., 1983, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. U.S.A. 80:21-25; see also “Useful proteins from recombinant bacteria” in Scientific American, 1980, 242:74-94); plant expression vectors comprising the nopaline synthetase promoter region (Herrera-Estrella et al., Nature 303:209-213) or the cauliflower mosaic virus 35S RNA promoter (Gardner et al., 1981 , Nucl. Acids Res. 9:2871), and the promoter of the photosynthetic enzyme ribulose biphosphate carboxylase (Herrera-Estrella et al., 1984, Nature 310:115-120); promoter elements from yeast or other fungi such as the Gal 4 promoter, the ADC (alcohol dehydrogenase) promoter, PGK (phosphoglycerol kinase) promoter, alkaline phosphatase promoter, and the following animal transcriptional control regions, which exhibit tissue specificity and have been utilized in transgenic animals: elastase I gene control region which is active in pancreatic acinar cells (Swift et al., 1984, Cell 38:639-646; Ornitz et al., 1986, Cold Spring Harbor Symp. Quant. Biol. 50:399-409; MacDonald, 1987, Hepatology 7:425-515); insulin gene control region which is active in pancreatic beta cells (Hanahan, 1985, Nature 315:115-122), immunoglobulin gene control region which is active in lymphoid cells (Grosschedl et al., 1984, Cell 38:647-658; Adames et al., 1985, Nature 318:533-538; Alexander et al., 1987, Mol. Cell. Biol. 7:1436-1444), mouse mammary tumor virus control region which is active in testicular, breast, lymphoid and mast cells (Leder et al., 1986, Cell 45:485-495), albumin gene control region which is active in liver (Pinkert et al., 1987, Genes and Devel. 1 :268-276), alpha-fetoprotein gene control region which is active in liver (Krumlauf et al., 1985, Mol. Cell. Biol. 5:1639-1648; Hammer et al., 1987, Science 235:53-58; alpha 1-antitrypsin gene control region which is active in the liver (Kelsey et al., 1987, Genes and Devel. 1 :161-171), beta-globin gene control region which is active in myeloid cells (Mogram et al., 1985, Nature 315:338-340; Kollias et al., 1986, Cell 46:89-94; myelin basic protein gene control region which is active in oligodendrocyte cells in the brain (Readhead et al., 1987, Cell 48:703-712); myosin light chain-2 gene control region which is active in skeletal muscle (Sani, 1985, Nature 314:283-286); neuronal-specific enolase (NSE) which is active in neuronal cells (Morelli et al., 1999, Gen. Virol. 80:571-83); brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) gene control region which is active in neuronal cells (Tabuchi et al., 1998, Biochem. Biophysic. Res. Com. 253:818-823); glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP) promoter which is active in astrocytes (Gomes et al., 1999, Braz J Med Biol Res 32(5): 619-631; Morelli et al., 1999, Gen. Virol. 80:571-83) and gonadotropic releasing hormone gene control region which is active in the hypothalamus (Mason et al., 1986, Science 234:1372-1378). [0145] In addition, a host cell strain may be chosen which modulates the expression of the inserted sequences, or modifies and processes the gene product in the specific fashion desired. Expression from certain promoters can be elevated in the presence of certain inducers; thus, expression of the genetically engineered fusion protein may be controlled. Furthermore, different host cells have characteristic and specific mechanisms for the translational and post-translational processing and modification (e.g., glycosylation, phosphorylation of proteins). Appropriate cell lines or host systems can be chosen to ensure the desired modification and processing of the foreign protein expressed. For example, expression in a bacterial system will produce an unglycosylated product and expression in yeast will produce a glycosylated product. Eukaryotic host cells that possess the cellular machinery for proper processing of the primary transcript (e.g., glycosylation, and phosphorylation) of the gene product may be used. Such mammalian host cells include, but are not limited to, CHO, VERY, BHK, Hela, COS, MDCK, HEK-293, 3T3, WI38, NSO, and in particular, neuronal cell lines such as, for example, SK-N-AS, SK-N-FI, SK-N-DZ human neuroblastomas (Sugimoto et al., 1984, J.

Acad. Sci. USA 89: 6467-6471) such as, for example, CRL7030 and Hs578Bst. Furthermore, different vector/host expression systems may effect processing reactions to different extents. [0146] For long-term, high-yield production of recombinant proteins, stable expression is often preferred. For example, cell lines that stably express the modified heavy and light chains of the invention (e.g., antibody or fusion protein) may be engineered. Rather than using expression vectors that contain viral origins of replication, host cells can be transformed with DNA controlled by appropriate expression control elements (e.g., promoter, enhancer, sequences, transcription terminators, polyadenylation sites, etc.), and a selectable marker. Following the introduction of the foreign DNA, engineered cells may be allowed to grow for 1-2 days in an enriched medium, and then are switched to a selective medium. The selectable marker in the recombinant plasmid confers resistance to the selection and allows cells to stably integrate the plasmid into their chromosomes and grow to form foci that in turn can be cloned and expanded into cell lines. [0147] A number of selection systems may be used, including but not limited to the herpes simplex virus thymidine kinase (Wigler et al., 1977, Cell 11 :223), hypoxanthine-guanine phosphoribosyltransferase (Szybalska & Szybalski, 1962, Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 48:2026), and adenine phosphoribosyltransferase (Lowy et al., 1980, Cell 22:817) genes can be employed in tk-, hgprt- or aprt-cells, respectively. Also, antimetabolite resistance can be used as the basis of selection for dhfr, which confers resistance to methotrexate (Wigler et al., 1980, Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 77:3567; O'Hare et al., 1981 , Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 78:1527); gpt, which confers resistance to mycophenolic acid (Mulligan & Berg, 1981 , Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 78:2072); neo, which confers resistance to the aminoglycoside G-418 (Colberre-Garapin et al., 1981 , J. Mol. Biol. 150:1); and hygro, which confers resistance to hygromycin (Santerre et al., 1984, Gene 30:147) genes. B.2 Co-Expression of Heavy Chains and Light Chains [0148] The immunoglobulin heavy chains and light chains of the heterodimer pairs according to the invention are co-expressed in mammalian cells, as noted above. In one embodiment, one heavy chain is co-expressed with two different light chains in a co-expression set as described above, where the heavy chain preferentially pairs with one of the two light chains. In another embodiment, two heavy chains are co-expressed with two different light chains, where each heavy chain preferentially pairs with one of the light chains. C. Testing of Heterodimer Pairs [0149] As described above, at least one heterodimer of the heterodimer pairs according to the invention comprises one or more amino acid modifications to their immunoglobulin heavy and/or immunoglobulin light chains such that when the two heavy chains and two light chains of the heterodimer pair are co-expressed in a mammalian cell, the heavy chain of the first heterodimer preferentially pairs with one of the light chains rather than the other. Likewise, the heavy chain of the second heterodimer preferentially pairs with the second light chain rather than the first. The degree of preferential pairing can be assessed, for example, by using the methods described below. The affinity of each heterodimer of the heterodimer pair for its respective antigen can be tested as described below. The thermal stability of each heterodimer of the heterodimer pair can also be tested as described below. C.1 Methods to Measure Preferential Pairing LCCA [0150] In one embodiment, preferential pairing between immunoglobulin heavy and light chains is determined by performing a Light Chain Competition Assay (LCCA). The method allows quantitative analysis of the pairing of heavy chains with specific light chains within the mixture of co-expressed proteins and can be used to determine if one particular immunoglobulin heavy chain selectively associates with either one of two immunoglobulin light chains when the heavy chain and light chains are co-expressed. The method is briefly described as follows: At least one heavy chain and two different light chains are co-expressed in a cell, in ratios such that the heavy chain is the limiting pairing reactant; optionally separating the secreted proteins from the cell; separating the immunoglobulin light chain polypeptides bound to heavy chain from the rest of the secreted proteins to produce an isolated heavy chain paired fraction; detecting the amount of each different light chain in the isolated heavy chain fraction; and analyzing the relative amount of each different light chain in the isolated heavy chain fraction to determine the ability of the at least one heavy chain to selectively pair with one of the light chains. [0151] The method provides reasonable throughput and is robust (i.e. insensitive to minor changes in operation, such as user or flow rate) and accurate. The method provides a sensitive assay that can measure the effects of small variations in the protein sequences. Promiscuous protein-protein; domain-domain; chain-chain interactions over large surface areas usually require multiple mutations (swaps) in order to introduce selectivity. The protein products do not need to be isolated and purified which enables more efficient screening. Further details regarding an embodiment of this method are described in the Examples. Alternative Methods to Determine Preferential Pairing [0152] Alternative methods for detecting preferential pairing include using LC-MS (Liquid chromatography-Mass spectrometry) to quantify the relative heterodimer populations including each light chain using differences in their molecular weight to identify each distinct species. An antigen activity assay could also be used to quantify relative heterodimer populations containing each light chain whereby the degree of binding measured (relative to controls) would be used to estimate each respective heterodimer population. C.2 Thermal Stability [0153] The thermal stability of the heterodimers can be determined according to methods known in the art. The melting temperature of each heterodimer is indicative of its thermal stability. The melting point of the heterodimer may be measured using techniques such as differential scanning calorimetry (Chen et al (2003) Pharm Res 20:1952-60; Ghirlando et al (1999) Immunol Lett 68:47-52). Alternatively, the thermal stability of the heterodimer may be measured using circular dichroism (Murray et al. (2002) J. Chromatogr Sci 40:343-9). C.3 Affinity for Antigen [0154] The binding affinity of the heterodimers for their respective antigens and the off-rate of the interaction can be determined by competitive binding assays according to methods well known in the art. One example of a competitive binding assay is a radioimmunoassay comprising the incubation of labeled antigen (e.g., 3H or 125I with a molecule of interest (e.g., heterodimers of the present invention) in the presence of increasing amounts of unlabeled antigen, and the detection of the molecule bound to the labeled ligand. The affinity of the heterodimer of the present invention for the antigen and the binding off-rates can be determined from the saturation data by Scatchard analysis. [0155] The kinetic parameters of a heterodimer according to the invention may also be determined using surface plasmon resonance (SPR) based assays known in the art (e.g., BIAcore kinetic analysis). For a review of SPR-based technology see Mullet et al., 2000, Methods 22: 77-91; Dong et al., 2002, Review in Mol. Biotech., 82: 303-23; Fivash et al., 1998, Current Opinion in Biotechnology 9: 97-101; Rich et al., 2000, Current Opinion in Biotechnology 11: 54-61. Additionally, any of the SPR instruments and SPR based methods for measuring protein-protein interactions described in U.S. Pat. Nos. 6,373,577; 6,289,286; 5,322,798; 5,341,215; 6,268,125 are contemplated in the methods of the invention. D. Pharmaceutical Compositions [0156] The present invention also provides pharmaceutical compositions comprising the heterodimers or heterodimer pairs. Such compositions comprise a therapeutically effective amount of the heterodimer or heterodimer pair, and a pharmaceutically acceptable carrier. In a specific embodiment, the term “pharmaceutically acceptable” means approved by a regulatory agency of the Federal or a state government or listed in the U.S. Pharmacopeia or other generally recognized pharmacopeia for use in animals, and more particularly in humans. The term “carrier” refers to a diluent, adjuvant, excipient, or vehicle with which the therapeutic is administered. Such pharmaceutical carriers can be sterile liquids, such as water and oils, including those of petroleum, animal, vegetable or synthetic origin, such as peanut oil, soybean oil, mineral oil, sesame oil and the like. Water is a preferred carrier when the pharmaceutical composition is administered intravenously. Saline solutions and aqueous dextrose and glycerol solutions can also be employed as liquid carriers, particularly for injectable solutions. Suitable pharmaceutical excipients include starch, glucose, lactose, sucrose, gelatin, malt, rice, flour, chalk, silica gel, sodium stearate, glycerol monostearate, talc, sodium chloride, dried skim milk, glycerol, propylene, glycol, water, ethanol and the like. The composition, if desired, can also contain minor amounts of wetting or emulsifying agents, or pH buffering agents. These compositions can take the form of solutions, suspensions, emulsion, tablets, pills, capsules, powders, sustained-release formulations and the like. The composition can be formulated as a suppository, with traditional binders and carriers such as triglycerides. Oral formulation can include standard carriers such as pharmaceutical grades of mannitol, lactose, starch, magnesium stearate, sodium saccharine, cellulose, magnesium carbonate, etc. Examples of suitable pharmaceutical carriers are described in “Remington's Pharmaceutical Sciences” by E. W. Martin. Such compositions will contain a therapeutically effective amount of the compound, preferably in purified form, together with a suitable amount of carrier so as to provide the form for proper administration to the patient. The formulation should suit the mode of administration. [0157] In certain embodiments, the composition comprising the heterodimer or heterodimer pair is formulated in accordance with routine procedures as a pharmaceutical composition adapted for intravenous administration to human beings. Typically, compositions for intravenous administration are solutions in sterile isotonic aqueous buffer. Where necessary, the composition may also include a solubilizing agent and a local anesthetic such as lignocaine to ease pain at the site of the injection. Generally, the ingredients are supplied either separately or mixed together in unit dosage form, for example, as a dry lyophilized powder or water free concentrate in a hermetically sealed container such as an ampoule or sachette indicating the quantity of active agent. Where the composition is to be administered by infusion, it can be dispensed with an infusion bottle containing sterile pharmaceutical grade water or saline. Where the composition is administered by injection, an ampoule of sterile water for injection or saline can be provided so that the ingredients may be mixed prior to administration. [0158] In certain embodiments, the compositions described herein are formulated as neutral or salt forms. Pharmaceutically acceptable salts include those formed with anions such as those derived from hydrochloric, phosphoric, acetic, oxalic, tartaric acids, etc., and those formed with cations such as those derived from sodium, potassium, ammonium, calcium, ferric hydroxide isopropylamine, triethylamine, 2-ethylamino ethanol, histidine, procaine, etc. [0159] The amount of the composition described herein which will be effective in the treatment, inhibition and prevention of a disease or disorder associated with aberrant expression and/or activity of a therapeutic protein can be determined by standard clinical techniques. In addition, in vitro assays may optionally be employed to help identify optimal dosage ranges. The precise dose to be employed in the formulation will also depend on the route of administration, and the seriousness of the disease or disorder, and should be decided according to the judgment of the practitioner and each patient's circumstances. Effective doses are extrapolated from dose-response curves derived from in vitro or animal model test systems. E. Uses of Heterodimer Pairs [0160] As described above, the heterodimer pairs according to the invention comprises a first heterodimer and a second heterodimer, where the immunoglobulin heavy chain and the immunoglobulin light chain of each heterodimer is derived or engineered from a known therapeutic antibody or from a known antibody that binds a molecule. Thus, it is contemplated that heterodimers derived or engineered from these antibodies could be used for the treatment or prevention of the same disease, disorder, or infection that the known therapeutic antibody or known antibody can be used for. [0161] Thus, in one embodiment, heterodimer pairs according to the invention that comprise a heterodimer with heavy and light chains derived from a therapeutic antibody that can be used for the treatment and/or prevention of cancer and related disorders, can also be used for the treatment and/or prevention of cancer and related disorders. [0162] In another embodiment, heterodimer pairs according to the invention that comprise a heterodimer with heavy and light chains derived from a therapeutic antibody that can be used for preventing, treating, or managing the symptoms of an inflammatory disorder in a subject, can also be used for preventing, treating, or managing the symptoms of an inflammatory disorder in a subject. [0163] In another embodiment, heterodimer pairs according to the invention that comprise a heterodimer with heavy and light chains derived from a therapeutic antibody that can be used for the treatment or prevention of autoimmune disease or inflammatory disease in a subject, can also be used for the treatment or prevention of autoimmune disease or inflammatory disease in a subject. [0164] In another embodiment, heterodimer pairs according to the invention that comprise a heterodimer with heavy and light chains derived from a therapeutic antibody that can be used for the treatment or prevention of an infectious disease in a subject, can also be used for the treatment or prevention of an infectious disease in a subject. [0165] In another embodiment, heterodimer pairs according to the invention that comprise a heterodimer with heavy and light chains derived from a therapeutic antibody that can be used for the treatment of vascular disease in a subject, can also be used for the treatment of vascular disease in a subject. [0166] In another embodiment, the heterodimer pairs according to the invention may also be advantageously utilized in combination with other therapeutic agents known in the art for the treatment or prevention of a cancer, autoimmune disease, inflammatory disorders or infectious diseases. In a specific embodiment, the heterodimer pairs according to the invention may be used in combination with monoclonal or chimeric antibodies, lymphokines, or hematopoietic growth factors (such as, e.g., IL-2, IL-3 and IL-7), which, for example, serve to increase the number or activity of effector cells which interact with the molecules and, increase immune response. The heterodimer pairs according to the invention may also be advantageously utilized in combination with one or more drugs used to treat a disease, disorder, or infection such as, for example anti-cancer agents, anti-inflammatory agents or anti-viral agents. F. Kits [0167] The present invention additionally provides for kits comprising one or more heterodimer pairs. Individual components of the kit would be packaged in separate containers and, associated with such containers, can be a notice in the form prescribed by a governmental agency regulating the manufacture, use or sale of pharmaceuticals or biological products, which notice reflects approval by the agency of manufacture, use or sale. The kit may optionally contain instructions or directions outlining the method of use or administration regimen for the heterodimer pairs. [0168] When one or more components of the kit are provided as solutions, for example an aqueous solution, or a sterile aqueous solution, the container means may itself be an inhalant, syringe, pipette, eye dropper, or other such like apparatus, from which the solution may be administered to a subject or applied to and mixed with the other components of the kit. [0169] The components of the kit may also be provided in dried or lyophilised form and the kit can additionally contain a suitable solvent for reconstitution of the lyophilised components. Irrespective of the number or type of containers, the kits of the invention also may comprise an instrument for assisting with the administration of the composition to a patient. Such an instrument may be an inhalant, nasal spray device, syringe, pipette, forceps, measured spoon, eye dropper or similar medically approved delivery vehicle. [0170] It is understood that the examples and embodiments described herein are for illustrative purposes only and that various modifications or changes in light thereof will be suggested to persons skilled in the art and are to be included within the spirit and purview of this application and scope of the appended claims. EXAMPLES [0171] The reagents employed in the examples are commercially available or can be prepared using commercially available instrumentation, methods, or reagents known in the art. The foregoing examples illustrate various aspects of the invention and practice of the methods of the invention. The examples are not intended to provide an exhaustive description of the many different embodiments of the invention. Thus, although the forgoing invention has been described in some detail by way of illustration and example for purposes of clarity of understanding, those of ordinary skill in the art will realize readily that many changes and modifications can be made thereto without departing from the spirit or scope of the appended claims. Example 1 Preparation of Constructs Encoding D3H44 IgG Heavy Chains and D3H44 IgG Light Chains [0172] The heavy and light chains of the anti-tissue factor antibody D3H44 for use in the co-expression sets described herein were prepared as follows. D3H44 Fab light (AJ308087.1) and heavy (AJ308086.1) chain sequences were taken from GenBank (www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/genbank/), gene synthesized and codon optimized for mammalian expression. Light chain vector inserts, consisting of 5′-EcoRI cutsite—HLA-A signal peptide—HA or FLAG tag—Light chain clone—TGA stop—BamH1 cutsite-3′, were ligated into a pTT5 vector (Durocher Y et al., Nucl. Acids Res. 2002; 30, No. 2 e9). The resulting vector +insert were sequenced to confirm correct reading frame and sequence of the coding DNA. Likewise, heavy chain vector inserts, consisting of 5′-EcoR1cutsite—HLA-A signal peptide—heavy chain clone—ABD 2 -His 6 tag—TGA stop—BamH1 cutsite-3′, were ligated into a pTT5 vector (ABD; albumin binding domain). The resulting vector+insert were also sequenced to confirm correct reading frame and sequence of the coding DNA. Example 2 Assessment of Preferential Pairing of Heterodimers in Co-Expression Sets Comprising Variable Domain Modifications in D3H44 IgG Light and/or Heavy Chains [0173] The ability of heterodimers to preferentially pair in co-expression sets comprising D3H44 heavy and light chains with modified V L and/or V H domains was determined and the results are shown in FIG. 1 . One D3H44 heavy chain construct was co-expressed with two unique D3H44 light chain constructs and the relative light chain pairing specificity (e.g. H1_L1:H1 _L2) was determined from a competition assay-SPR screen (Column entitled “Competition assay screen results” in FIG. 1 ). Selected heterodimer hits were confirmed via a modified competition assay verification where DNA ratios of L1:L2 were varied by 40:60, 50:50 and 60:40 during transfection (Column entitled “Competition assay verification results” in FIG. 1 ). Heavy chain (HC) was kept in limiting quantities (i.e. HC<L1+L2) for both competition assay screens and verifications. The methods were carried out as follows. Transfection Method [0174] Co-expression sets comprising one heavy chain and two light chain constructs prepared as described in Example 1 were transfected into CHO-3E7 cells as follows. CHO-3E7 cells were cultured at 37° C. in FreeStyle™ F17 medium (Invitrogen cat# A-1383501) supplemented with 4 mM glutamine and 0.1% Pluronic F-68 (Invitrogen cat# 24040-032). Two million cells (CHO-3E7) in 2 ml of growth medium were transfected with a total of 2 ug DNA using PEI-pro (Polyplus cat# 115-010) at a DNA:PEI ratio of 1:2.5. Twenty-four hours after the addition of the DNA-PEI mixture, the cells were transferred to 32° C. Supernatants were tested for expression on day 7 by non-reducing SDS-PAGE analysis followed by Coommassie blue staining to visualize the bands. HC:LC ratios are as indicated in Table 7.

Competition Assay SPR Method [0175] The degree of preferential D3H44 light chain pairing to D3H44 heavy chain in co-expression sets was assessed using an SPR-based readout of unique epitope tags located at the N-terminus of each light chain. [0176] Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR) Supplies. [0177] GLM sensorchips, the Biorad ProteOn amine coupling kit (1-ethyl-3-(3-dimethylaminopropyl) carbodiimide hydrochloride (EDC), N-hydroxysulfosuccinimide (sNHS) and ethanolamine), and 10 mM sodium acetate buffers were purchased from Bio-Rad Laboratories (Canada) Ltd. (Mississauga, ON). Recombinant Her-2 protein was purchased from eBioscience (San Diego, Calif.). 4-(2-hydroxyethyl)-1-piperazineethanesulfonic acid (HEPES) buffer, ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA), and NaCl were purchased from Sigma-Aldrich (Oakville, ON). 10% Tween 20 solution was purchased from Teknova (Hollister, Calif.). [0178] SPR Biosensor Assays. [0179] All surface plasmon resonance assays were carried out using a BioRad ProteOn XPR36 instrument (Bio-Rad Laboratories (Canada) Ltd. (Mississauga, ON)) with PBST running buffer (PBS Teknova Inc with 0.05% Tween20) at a temperature of 25° C. The anti-penta His capture surface was generated using a GLM sensorchip activated by a 1:5 dilution of the standard BioRad sNHS/EDC solutions injected for 140 s at 100 μL/min in the analyte (horizontal) direction. Immediately after the activation, a 25 μg/mL solution of anti-penta His antibody (Qiagen Inc.) in 10 mM NaOAc pH 4.5 was injected in the analyte (vertical) direction at a flow rate of 25 μL/min until approximately 3000 resonance units (RUs) were immobilized. Remaining active groups were quenched by a 140 s injection of 1M ethanolamine at 100 μL/min in the analyte direction, and this also ensures mock-activated interspots are created for blank referencing. [0180] The screening of the heterodimers for binding to the anti-FLAG (Sigma Inc.) and anti-HA (Roche Inc.) monoclonal antibodies occurred in two steps: an indirect capture of the heterodimers onto the anti-penta His surface in the ligand direction followed by an anti-FLAG and anti-HA injection in the analyte direction. Firstly, one buffer injection for 30 s at 100 uL/min in the ligand direction was used to stabilize the baseline. For each heterodimer capture, unpurified heterodimers in cell-culture media were diluted to 4% in PBST. One to five heterodimers or controls (i.e. controls containing either !00% HA-light chain or 100% FLAG-light chain) were simultaneously injected in individual ligand channels for 240 s at flow 25 μL/min. This resulted in a saturating heterodimer capture of approximately 300 to 400 RUs onto the anti-penta His surface. The first ligand channel was left empty to use as a blank control if required. This heterodimer capture step was immediately followed by two buffer injections in the analyte direction to stabilize the baseline, and then 5 nM anti-FLAG and 5 nM anti-HA were each injected in duplicate at 50 μL/min for 120 s with a 180 s dissociation phase, resulting in a set of binding sensorgrams with a buffer reference for each of the captured heterodimer. Where possible, the antigen to which the heterodimer binds can also be injected over the last remaining analyte channel as an activity control. The heterodimers were regenerated by an 18 s pulse of 0.85% phosphoric acid for 18 s at 100 μL/min to prepare the anti-penta His surface for the next injection cycle. Sensorgrams were aligned and double-referenced using the buffer blank injection and interspots, and the resulting sensorgrams were analyzed using ProteOn Manager software v3.0. [0181] The total percentage of L1 and L2 should, theoretically, add up to 100%. In practice, it was observed for some variants that the total amount of L1 and L2 added up to significantly less than 100%. This discrepancy in total light chain percentage is believed to be due in part to the occurrence of variable non-specific binding during initial heterodimer capture on the SPR chip. Example 3 Assessment of Preferential Pairing of Heterodimers in Co-Expression Sets Comprising Constant (C L or C H1 ) Domain Modifications in D3H44 IgG Light and/or Heavy Chains [0182] The ability of heterodimers to preferentially pair in co-expression sets comprising D3H44 heavy and light chains with modified C L and/or C H1 domains was determined as described for heterodimers with variable domain modifications in Example 2, and the results are shown in FIG. 2 . One D3H44 heavy chain construct was co-expressed with two unique D3H44 light chain constructs and the relative light chain pairing specificity (e.g. H1_L1:H1_L2) was determined from a competition assay-SPR screen (Column entitled “Competition assay screen results” in FIG. 2 ). Selected heterodimer hits were confirmed via a modified competition assay verification where DNA ratios of L1:L2 were varied by 40:60, 50:50 and 60:40 during transfection (Column entitled “Competition assay verification results” in FIG. 2 ). As described in Example 2, heavy chain (HC) was kept in limiting quantities (i.e. HC<L1+L2) for both competition assay screens and verifications. Assessment of preferential pairing was carried out as described in Example 2. Example 4 Scale Up for Biophysical Characterization [0183] Selected heterodimers, both paired and mispaired, were scaled up (typically to 50 ml) and purified as follows in order to test for thermal stability and antigen binding. Heterodimers HD100-HD115, as shown in FIG. 3 were expressed and purified. The heavy and light chain of each heterodimer was expressed in 50 ml cultures of CHO-3E7 cells under the culture conditions described above. Cells were centrifuged and heterodimers purified by loading the supernatant on Fractogel column charged with Nickel as described below. [0000] Purification on Fractogel Column Charging with Nickel (His) [0184] Charging the column with Nickel: Sequentially wash with 5 column volumes (CV) of 0.5 M NaCl (no pH adjustment), followed by 4 CV 200 mM of NiCl 2 (Nickel) and 2 CV of 0.5 M NaCl pH 5.0. Sample loading and elution: Equilibrate column with 10 CV PBS. Load sample and wash with 10 CV of wash buffer #1 (50 mM sodium phosphate pH 7.0, 300 mM NaCl) followed by 10 CV of wash buffer #2 (50 mM sodium phosphate pH 7.0, 300 mM NaCl, 25 mM Imidazole) to remove impurities bound to the column. The heterodimers were eluted in fractions with wash buffer #1+300 mM Imidazole. The protein content of each fraction was tested by Bradford protein assay. Fractions containing protein were pooled. The purified heterodimers were then assayed for antigen binding and thermal stability as described in Example 5. Example 5 Thermal Stability and Antigen Affinity Measurements of Heterodimers [0185] The thermal stability and antigen affinity of selected heterodimer pairs was measured in order to compare these features with that of wild type, unmodified heavy chain-light chain pair. Correctly paired and mispaired heterodimers from co-expression sets were individually scaled up, purified (i.e. His tag affinity purification) and assessed for thermal stability and antigen binding as described below. The results are shown in FIG. 3 . Measurement of Thermal Stability [0186] The thermal stability of selected heterodimer pairs was measured using differential scanning calorimetry (DSC) as follows. [0187] Each heterodimer was purified as described in Example 3 and diluted to 0.2 mg/mL in PBS, and a total of 400 4 was used for DSC analysis with a VP-Capillary DSC (GE Healthcare). At the start of each DSC run, 5 buffer blank injections were performed to stabilize the baseline, and a buffer injection was placed before each heterodimer injection for referencing. Each sample was scanned from 20 to 100° C. at a 60° C./hr rate, with low feedback, 8 sec filter, 5 min preTstat, and 70 psi nitrogen pressure. The resulting thermograms were referenced and analyzed using Origin 7 software. [0188] Thermal unfolding curves for the heterodimers tested are shown in FIG. 4 . The results indicate that the correctly paired heterodimer (from a design perspective) is usually significantly more stable than the intended mispaired heterodimer (e.g. HD107 versus HD108). In addition, many of the correctly paired heterodimer exhibit a thermal stability close to wild-type Fab (e.g. HD114). Measurement of Antigen Affinity [0189] The affinity of the heterodimer pairs for antigen (tissue factor extracellular domains) was measured using surface plasmon resonance (SPR) assays. All surface plasmon resonance assays were carried out using a BioRad ProteOn XPR36 instrument (Bio-Rad Laboratories (Canada) Ltd. (Mississauga, ON)) with PBST running buffer (PBS Teknova Inc with 0.05% Tween20) at a temperature of 25° C. A purified tissue factor (TF) surface was generated using a GLM sensorchip activated by a 1:10 dilution of the standard BioRad sNHS/EDC solutions injected for 140 s at 100 μL/min in the ligand (vertical) direction. Immediately after the activation, a 25 μg/mL solution of TF in 10 mM NaOAc pH 4.5 was injected in the ligand direction at a flow rate of 25 μL/min until approximately 1000 resonance units (RUs) were immobilized (or enough for a 100 RU maximum response when flowing 60 nM FAB). Remaining active groups were quenched by a 140 s injection of 1M ethanolamine at 100 μL/min in the analyte direction. For each injection series, two buffer blank injections in the horizontal injection preceded the purified heterodimer. A 3-fold dilution series of each heterodimer (60 nM, 20 nM, 6.7 nM, 2.2 nM) with a blank buffer control was simultaneously injected at 50 μL/min for 120 s with a 20 minute dissociation, resulting in a set of binding sensorgrams with a buffer reference for each of the heterodimers. The heterodimer:TF complexes on the SPR surface were regenerated by an 18 s pulse of 0.85% phosphoric acid for 18 s at 100 μL/min to prepare the TF surface for the next injection cycle. Sensorgrams were aligned and double-referenced using the buffer blank injection and interspots, and the resulting sensorgrams were analyzed using a 1:1 binding model within the ProteOn Manager software v3.0. [0190] The results indicate that the correctly paired heterodimer (from a design perspective) exhibits a range of affinities for antigen, with some designs showing wild-type like binding affinity for antigen (e.g. HD107 and HD114). Example 6 Size Exclusion Chromatography (SEC) Profiles of Wild-Type Tagged D3H44 Heterodimers and a Representative Sample of Individual Preferentially Paired Heterodimers [0191] Wild-type D3H44 heterodimer (one heavy chain and one light chain) with a C-terminus ABD2-His 6 tag on the heavy chain and an N-terminus FLAG tag on the light chain was expressed and purified according to methods known in the art and similar to those described in Examples 1 and 4. Preferentially or correctly paired heterodimers from co-expression sets (heterodimers HD100, HD105, and HD107, shown in FIG. 3 ) were individually scaled up and purified via His tag affinity purification and SEC as described in Example 4. [0192] SEC was carried out as follows. Heterodimer samples were separated using a Superdex 200 HR 10/30 Pharmacia (GE Healthcare) column mounted on a Pharmacia (GE Healthcare) AKTA Purifier system. Heterodimer samples (0.3-0.5 ml) in PBS were manually loaded into a 0.5 ml loop filled with PBS. Samples were than automatically injected onto the column and resolved at 0.5 ml/min with a 1 CV elution volume. Protein elution was monitored at OD 280 and collected in 1 ml fractions. [0193] As shown in FIG. 5A-D , correctly paired heterodimers displayed SEC profiles close to that observed for wild-type heterodimer without amino acid modifications (Main peak [*]:heterodimer). Equivalent results are obtained when the light chain of the wild-type heterodimer has a N-terminus HA tag. Example 7 Additional Data Relating to the Stability of Heterodimers [0194] Designs shown in Table 8 were highlighted as combinations of design drivers with improved HC-LC selectivities.
