TeselaGen Biotechnology Announced the Launch of a New Protein Optimization Toolkit for Automated Biotherapeutic Drug Design and Development

TeselaGen Biotechnology | May 21, 2021

TeselaGen Biotechnology today announced the launch of a new protein optimization toolkit for biotherapeutic drug design and development, introducing significant enhancements to the company’s flagship TeselaGen® OS to form designing and developing pharmaceuticals and biotherapeutics faster and fewer expensive. The new capabilities, easily accessible via the cloud-based platform, simplify the planning of highly complex combinatorial protein libraries and support AI models for optimizing new peptides and proteins. New application programming interfaces (APIs) and integration tools have also been extended to further enhance users’ access to the new capabilities.

TeselaGen integrates the facility of AI with one end-to-end platform for design, construction, data gathering, and analysis of bioproduct performance, from pharmaceuticals to food and fabrics, significantly accelerating time to plug and reducing costs. The platform’s DESIGN, BUILD, TEST, and find out modules enable researchers to effectively collaborate across an organization's development pipeline to style and build experiments, standardize and share data, and learn and preserve project results by embedding them during a machine learning model.

TeselaGen’s DESIGN is an intuitive, user-interface-driven module that permits scientists to style highly complex combinatorial libraries. With this new release, the planning now supports aminoalkanoic acid parts which will be efficiently mapped to DNA. TeselaGen can then automatically generate biology protocols for efficiently synthesizing and assembling the corresponding DNA libraries.

TeselaGen’s DISCOVER now supports AI models which will recommend new peptides and proteins supported by the training of supervised and unsupervised learning models. The platform also supports the modeling of unnatural amino acids and multicriteria optimization of proteins. R&D groups can utilize the TeselaGen OS to hurry the invention process. Datasets are uploaded and arranged within the platform and immediately useful for model building within TeselaGen’s DISCOVER module.

TeselaGen has demonstrated that it can increase the planning and build speed of biological products and reduce the prices related to research & development by an order of magnitude. Current partnering companies are using the new capabilities for designing antibodies and optimizing their binding affinity, titer, specific productivity, immunogenicity, or other phenotypic variables of interest. Researchers also are looking to TeselaGen for rapidly engineering new vaccines - using methods like virus-like particles (VLPs), DNA, and RNA vaccines - opening the door to attacking rapidly mutating RNA and retroviruses like influenza, HCV, HIV, or coronaviruses.

Monte Rosa Therapeutics Advances Second Development Candidate, MRT-6160, a Novel, Highly Selective Molecular Glue Degrader Targeting VAV1

Globenewswire | May 29, 2023

Monte Rosa Therapeutics, Inc. a clinical-stage biotechnology company developing novel molecular glue degrader (MGD)-based medicines, announced its second development candidate, MRT-6160, a novel, potent, and selective molecular glue degrader of VAV1. The Company plans to file an Investigational New Drug (IND) application for MRT-6160 in the first half of 2024 and to develop the molecule as a potential treatment for autoimmune diseases. “MRT-6160 is a potent, orally bioavailable MGD designed to degrade VAV1, an important protein involved in the signaling pathways of T and B cells. Our in vitro studies have shown that MRT-6160 selectively degrades VAV1 without detectable effects on other proteins. By targeting VAV1, MRT-6160 attenuates multiple aspects of T- and B-cell function and inhibits disease progression in established in vivo models of autoimmunity,” said Owen Wallace, Ph.D., Chief Scientific Officer of Monte Rosa. “The underlying biology and our preclinical data both demonstrate that MRT-6160 acts as an immune modulator, which has the potential to avoid the broad immune suppression seen with other approaches. We look forward to progressing our clinical plan developed with the goal of providing early insights into safety, PK and PD, and proof of concept regarding differentiated effects on key immunomodulatory signaling pathways.” “Our goal centers on pioneering therapeutically meaningful new drugs for patients with serious diseases. By addressing VAV1, a validated but previously undruggable target, we believe we've created a potentially groundbreaking therapy for patients suffering from a range of serious autoimmune conditions, particularly those involving both T- and B cell-mediated autoimmunity,” said Markus Warmuth, M.D., CEO of Monte Rosa. “MRT-6160 is expected to be our second MGD to enter clinical trials, showcasing the continued productivity of our QuEEN™ platform. We anticipate significant progress and milestones in our portfolio in the upcoming year, including initial clinical data from our GSPT1 MGD, MRT-2359, in the second half of this year and filing of an IND application for MRT-6160 in the first half of next year.” About Monte Rosa Monte Rosa Therapeutics is a biotechnology company developing novel molecular glue degrader (MGD) medicines for patients with serious diseases such as oncology, autoimmune and inflammatory diseases. MGDs are small molecule protein degraders that employ the body’s natural mechanisms to selectively eliminate therapeutically relevant proteins. The Company’s QuEEN™ (Quantitative and Engineered Elimination of Neosubstrates) platform enables it to rapidly identify protein targets and design highly selective degraders by combining diverse libraries of proprietary MGDs with in-house proteomics, structural biology, AI/machine learning, and computational chemistry capabilities.
