Life Technologies Signs Collaborative Agreement with Structural Genomics Consortium to Develop First Antibody Master Set for Epigenetic Studies
Date:7/19/2012

CARLSBAD, Calif., July 19, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Life Technologies Corporation (NASDAQ: LIFE) today announced it has signed a collaborative partnership with the Structural Genomics Consortium (SGC), and several groups of leading expert scientists in antibody technology at the Universities of Chicago and Toronto, to generate a first-ever master set of quality epigenetic recombinant antibodies for use in disease-related research.  The first 58 of 200 highly-specific antibodies to be designed are now available to the scientific community.

Epigenetic regulatory proteins are involved in a wide variety of chronic diseases, such as cancer, and are the target of an explosive new field of drug discovery.  The ability to properly study most epigenetic changes, which determine which genes are "turned off and on," are determined by the effectiveness of one critical tool -- antibodies.  A lack of industry-wide standards for quality antibodies, however, has plagued the field for years and resulted in an influx of products on the market that do not perform as advertised.  The recombinant antibodies produced from the Life Technologies/SGC partnership address this important issue.

"The partnership is prepared to produce a set of 200 highly-specific, highly-sensitive antibodies that are validated for specific applications," says Dr. Aled Edwards, Director and CEO of SGC. "These 58 now being launched are the first step toward developing the defacto standard set of quality epigenetics antibodies that researchers can use for generations to come."

The recombinant antibodies are being developed by Life Technologies in partnership with the SGC, which comprises a network of more than 200 scientists from the University of Toronto and Oxford University, as well as six pharmaceutical companies, which incl
