Gene Therapy Technology    

A new protein with a WW domain and existing in human cell nuclei, applicable for the diagnosis and therapy of cancers.

Overview

This technology offers an isolated and purified human nuclear protein existing in human cell nucleus, a polynucleotide encoding this protein, and an antibody against this nuclear protein. The protein and antibody are of use for diagnosis and therapy of cancers. By screening a low-molecular compound binding to the this protein, a new types of drugs such as antitumor agent can be investigated.

Comments on Deal Structure, Potential Terms and Restrictions

Patent available for commercialization, enforcement rights negotiable.
