Purely Proteins, Abcam to Develop Proteome-Wide Set of Protein/Antibody Pairs

NEW YORK, Feb. 17 (GemomeWeb News) - Purely Proteins and Abcam today announced a collaborative agreement under which the firms will jointly identify and produce a set of protein-antibody pairs that spans the entire human proteome.

Under the collaboration, the companies said they will produce families of therapeutically relevant proteins and protein domains together with their corresponding antibodies. The companies will use Purely Proteins' TargetBase protein database to gather information about known members of specific protein families, while Abcam will design and produce specific antibodies to these targets.

The companies will jointly market protein/antibody combinations developed as part of the collaboration.
