Novel Enzymatic, 1-Step Site-Specific Protein Conjugation Technology for ADC Production
Berlin, Germany, and Vienna, Austria, April 19th: ProBioGen, a leading specialist for contract development and manufacturing of complex glycoproteins and Eucodis Bioscience, an expert in enzyme engineering, today jointly announced the signature of an exclusive license agreement on C-LiNK (CTAT), an innovative, site-specific ADC conjugation technology. Under the agreement ProBioGen gains exclusive rights to commercialize Eucodis’ enzymatic C-terminal linking technology, and to offer it, together with its antibody development services, royalty-free to ADC-developing parties.
ProBioGen’s CEO, Dr. Wieland Wolf, commented: “This agreement is an excellent match between Eucodis’ enzyme engineering expertise and ProBioGen’s therapeutic protein-optimizing technologies and we look much forward to position C-LiNK and our contract manufacturing services right in the middle of the hot ADC field”.
Dr. Karl Hübler, CEO of Eucodis explained: “We see a huge potential for C-LiNK in Biopharma, especially in ADC development, but our expertise is engineering enzymes. Therefore, by teaming up with ProBioGen, our ADC conjugation technology will certainly get a much wider and quicker access to the community of therapeutic protein developing companies and we are convinced that our agreement with ProBioGen will result in fruitful collaborations within the industry.”
