other things, for filing patents to protect the MT-39 series based both on the original work performed at MTI as well as work that will be carried out by Makoto.

Terence S. Russell, Ph.D., President and CEO of Makoto, said: "We are very pleased to have the opportunity to work with Mercury and to apply Makoto's expertise in small molecule target identification to drug discovery in metabolic disease. Type-2 diabetes is a large and growing serious medical condition for which novel therapeutics are increasingly needed."

Neal C. Birnberg, Ph.D., Mercury Therapeutics' President and CEO, said: "By finding a development partner for the MT-39 program while continuing to develop direct AMPK activators in-house, this agreement with Makoto complements Mercury's internal AMPK activator development strategy. Furthermore, by leveraging our AMPK small molecule discovery platform to identify both direct and indirect AMPK activators, this agreement increases the number of potential revenue generating opportunities for our shareholders."
