Protein Production in Tobacco from an Amplified Inducible System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: ARIZONA BOARD OF REGENTS, ASUNIV.
Principal Investigator: William L. Petersen
Award Amount: $99,438.00
RI Contact: Candyace Lindsay
Abstract:
This Phase I proposal will test a UV-B light inducible system in tobacco to produce exceptionally large amounts of protein. There are three principal components to the system: 1) a tightly regulated, UV-B inducible promoter fused to a geminivirus replication associated protein (Rep) coding region,… More

A Novel System for Producing Pharmaceutical Proteins

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: HHS
Principal Investigator: William L. Petersen
Award Amount: $168,560.00
Abstract:
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Rxoa Biosciences, in collaboration with Arizona State University, is developing a novel maize-based production system for manufacturing pharmaceutical proteins. Transgenic maize seeds are employed as bioreactors to produce desired proteins to high intracellular… More

Targeted Homologous Recombination in Meiotic Plant Cells.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: William L. Petersen
Award Amount: $80,000.00
Abstract:
The objective of this proposal is to develop a rapid, simple, and efficient method to perform targeted homologous recombination in plants. We will produce a specialized vector that carries the desired mutant locus, then use controlled DNA replication to produce hundreds of circular DNA copies of… More

Targeted Homologous Recombination in Meiotic Plant Cells.Phase II

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2008 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: William L. Petersen, Managing Member
Award Amount: $349,923.00
Abstract:
Rxoa Biosciences is developing a new technology known as Homologous Recombination (HR) which will give researchers the ability to precisely modify the genetic makeup of plants. Currently, this technique for modifying the genetic makeup of an organism has only been practical for bacterial, animal and… More

Rapid, Simple and Inexpensive Detection of Potyvirus in Seed Potatoes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: USDA
Principal Investigator: William L. Petersen, Managing Member
Award Amount: $90,000.00
Abstract:
Rxoa Biosciences (Rxoa) proposes to develop a fast, reliable, cost-effective assay for Potato Virus Y (PVY). The $3 billion per year US potato industry requires a reliable and healthy seed potato supply. PVY is one of the top disease management issues for the over 2 billion pounds of seed potatoes… More
