AnaSpec Licenses Protein Tyrosine Phosphate IP from UW TechTransfer

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Proteomics products company AnaSpec has licensed intellectual property from the University of Washington’s technology transfer arm, the company said today.
AnaSpec has licensed the rights to make, use, and sell protein tyrosine phosphatase substrates covered under UW TechTransfer’s patent No. 5,739,278, entitled “Compositions for Protein Tyrosine Phosphatases.” The San Jose-based company, which sells peptides, detection reagents, and combinatorial chemistry products, said it plans to market the UW protein technology as part of its GO Peptides line.
UW TechTransfer manages over 2,000 issued and pending patents filed in the US and abroad, and since its founding in 1982 has been involved in the creation of over 235 companies. 
Financial terms of the agreement were not released.
