Serenex Broadens Proteomic Profiling Services for GSK

NEW YORK, Jan. 11 (GenomeWeb News) - Serenex has broadened its deal with GlaxoSmithKline, providing the drug maker with compound-profiling services using its purine proteomics technology, the Durham, NC-based company said today.


GSK scientists at any location can now submit compounds to Serenex, which will profile them against specific tissues and cell lines using its Proteome Mining Technology. The technology allows scientists to study the specificity of compounds for purine-binding proteins.


Serenex signed its first deal with GSK in 2003. The new agreement "will enable Serenex to more fully apply its technology to a larger number of GSK programs," said Serenex CEO Richard Kent in a statement.
