transOMIC technologies Releases Tagged ORF Clones for Protein Expression

Huntsville, AL (PRWEB) January 29, 2013

transOMIC technologies announced today that it has partnered with Clontech (a Takara Bio company) to launch the MGC premier™ Tagged ORF collections for gene and protein analysis. Over 40,000 human, mouse and rat genes are represented in these new genome-scale ORF collections, making transOMIC technologies the largest provider of gene content for protein expression.

“Introducing this new collection of ORF expression vectors supports our mission to offer new gene analysis tools to the market,” said Blake Simmons, chief executive officer of transOMIC technologies. “By using Clontech’s validated expression system and fusion-tags, we can now provide ready-to-express gene content to simplify gene and protein analysis.”

transOMIC technologies was recently made an archive site for full-length cDNA collections in the NIH’s Mammalian Gene Collection. The company has significantly expanded the utility of this resource with the MGC premier™ Expression-Ready cDNA clone collection in 2012 and now in 2013 with the MGC premier Tagged ORFs for protein expression.

transOMIC technologies’ partnership with Clontech combines industry leading expertise in the development of gene expression systems with transOMIC’s extensive gene content. These vectors contain validated fusion tags that minimize interference with protein function and are ideal for protein expression and analysis. With a choice of two well characterized fusion tags in the N- or C-terminal format and coverage across three genomes, researchers now have immediate access to versatile protein expression vectors and the broadest, highest quality gene content on the market.

Andrew Farmer, Ph.D., vice president for research and development at Clontech Laboratories, Inc. said, “As leading developers of mammalian expression and protein purification systems, we are pleased to work with transOMIC technologies to provide high quality gene collections expressed using Clontech technologies.”

“As the official archive site for the MGC we are aligned with NIH’s mandate to make gene content easily available to researchers. Even better, we’re adding new functionality to the gold standard cDNA clone collection,” said Gwen Fewell, Ph.D., chief commercial officer for transOMIC technologies. “Providing access to genes previously unavailable in well studied expression systems allows researchers new flexibility with familiar tools.”
