Benzinga · -

Applied DNA Sciences Inc. (NASDAQ:APDN) (“Applied DNA” or the “Company”) announced today that LineaRx, Inc. (“LineaRx”), its majority-owned subsidiary focused on next-generation biotherapeutics and cancer diagnostics, has signed a licensing agreement with LifeSensors, Inc. (“LifeSensors”), to incorporate LifeSensors’ high expression SUMO-fusion technologies into the Company’s linear DNA amplicons designed and produced for therapeutic applications (the “Agreement”). LifeSensors’ SUMO-fusion technologies enable the attachment of the C-terminus of SUMO (Small Ubiquitin Like Modifier) to the N-terminus of a protein of interest that can dramatically improve protein solubility, achieve native protein folding, and increase total yield by improving expression and decreasing degradation.

Under the terms of the Agreement, LineaRx will have a worldwide license to the applicable LifeSensors intellectual property to make, have made, use, and sell DNA constructs incorporating the SUMO-fusion technologies for therapeutic and diagnostic applications.
