Customers Testimonials – LRC-TriCEPS Service

Please see below the testimonials from our customers who have used  the LRC-TriCEPSTM technology (CaptiRec) in collaboration with Dualsystems Biotech AG.

The Rockefeller University

“We are very pleased with the work product of Dualsystems Biotech. The TriCEPS reagent allowed us to identify a novel ligand-extracellular matrix protein receptor interaction, which was not possible using traditional techniques. The Dualsystems team were very helpful in tailoring the experimental conditions to fit our biological question.”

Medizinische Hochschule Hannover

With the support of Dualsystems Biotech and their LRC-TriCEPS technology we were able to identify receptor candidates for our peptide with renoprotective properties in kidney injury.

« Leveraging Dualsystems Biotech novel linker technology (LRC-TriCEPS) and its analytical data processing capabilities we were able to identify the heterophilic receptor for a highly-pursued immuno-oncology target.»

Jonathan M Peterson, April 2016, The FASEB Journal, vol. 30 no. 1 Supplement 1249.2 Identification of cell surface receptors for the novel adipokine CTRP3

For the ligand sample two unique receptors were identified. Flow cytometry analysis with siRNA induced knockdown of these proteins confirmed that the presence of the protein is needed for CTRP3 binding to occur. CONCLUSION The LRC-TriCEPS methodology was successful in identifying the receptor for CTRP3.
