Compugen Announces Addition of Two Proteins to Pipeline

NEW YORK, June 7 (GenomeWeb News) - Compugen said today that it has recently added two novel therapeutic proteins, identified using the company's discovery engines, to its research pipeline.

 

According to the company, the proteins are CGEN M-3, a soluble kinase receptor with potential applications in cancer, and CGEN P-4, a peptide that may be useful in the areas of obesity and eating disorders.

 

The proteins, said Compugen, were initially predicted in-silico and are now being evaluated in the company's molecular biology labs.
