The US National Cancer Institute Expands Contract with GENEART by USD 0.8M
News Jul 01, 2008
The NIH are therefore increasing the order volume for the production of genes for the "Mammalian Gene Collection (MGC)" to a total of USD 2.7M in 2008.
More than 3,500 genes with an order volume of approximately USD 3.5M were produced by GENEART last year as part of the basic contract.
The National Cancer Institute uses the genes synthesized by GENEART to supplement the Mammalian Gene Collection - a comprehensive collection of genes from mice, rats, and humans, both for basic research and for applied medical research.
The genes that have been produced so far are composed of complex repeat motifs, they are quite large and for most part are rare transcripts. In order to produce the requested highly complex genes efficiently in high throughput, GENEART further advanced its synthesis processes and established new production techniques last year.

Targeting a Leaky Protein that Causes ParalysisNews
A rare genetic disorder in which people are overcome suddenly with profound muscle weakness is caused by a hole in a membrane protein that allows sodium ions to leak across cell membranes. Compounds containing a chemical group called guanidinium can block the pore created by the mutation and stop the sodium leak without altering the voltage sensor’s ability to function.READ MORE
