OriGene and Tanox Establish Research Collaboration

NEW YORK, Oct. 8 (GenomeWeb News) -- OriGene Technologies of Rockville, Md., and Tanox of Houston today announced a research collaboration for the functional study of 2,000 full-length cDNA clones encoding membrane-bound proteins.

Financial details of the deal were not disclosed.

Tanox, which develops monoclonal antibodies and targets diseases of the human immune system, reserves rights for therapeutic applications identified through the collaboration while OriGene retains rights for research and diagnostic reagent development, the companies said in a statement.

OriGene Technologies has utilized high-throughput cloning and expression profiling to isolate and catalog a searchable gene bank of 20,000 full-length human cDNA clones suitable for transfection and direct in vitro expression.
