CST Licenses PTMScan to Genentech to Enable Discovery Proteomics Research
DANVERS, Mass., Sept. 28, 2018
DANVERS, Mass., Sept. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Cell Signaling Technology (CST) a leading provider of antibodies, kits, and services, announced that Genentech, a member of the Roche Group, has licensed proprietary PTMScan® technology from CST, further enabling discovery proteomics research.
The CST PTMScan technology is an immuno-affinity enrichment method that allows for the discovery of hundreds to thousands of novel sites of post-translational modifications (PTMs), including phosphorylation and ubiquitination. By combining the specificity of biomedical techniques with the dynamic range of proteomics methods, PTMScan provides a more focused approach to peptide enrichment compared to other strategies. Genentech currently utilizes PTMScan methodology to investigate and publish on a range of scientific research in multiple therapeutic areas.
"CST is pleased to have licensed PTMScan to Genentech to further enable their world-class discovery and drug development research while expanding the impact of PTMScan immuno-affinity enrichment technology. PTMScan is a powerful technology that can be leveraged to answer a variety of biological questions," said Roberto Polakiewicz, Ph.D. Cell Signaling Technology, Chief Scientific Officer.
