Kinaxo Extends its Collaboration with Roche
News Jan 13, 2010
KINAXO Biotechnologies GmbH announced that it has entered into a second collaboration with Roche Diagnostics GmbH in Penzberg, Germany. Under the agreement KINAXO will apply its phosphoproteomics technology PhosphoScout® to support targeted treatment approaches currently under development at Roche. Financial details of the agreement were not disclosed.
KINAXO’s phosphoproteomics platform PhosphoScout® enables the identification of regulated protein phosphorylation sites in response to therapeutic antibody or kinase inhibitor treatment. Using quantitative mass spectrometry, up to 15,000 phosphorylation sites can be monitored in a single experiment, thereby facilitating analysis of the phosphoproteome in patient samples, animal models and cell culture on a global scale.
Unlike immunoassays, PhosphoScout® does not require antibodies for detection, thus enabling unbiased, comprehensive phosphoproteome analyses across entire signaling pathways. This positions PhosphoScout® as an upcoming technology for drug mode of action analysis and the stratification of cancer patients receiving targeted therapies.
