Proprietary Analysis

Translation Control Platform
We purified and fluorescently labeled all 48 types of human tRNA
Using FRET signals from signature tRNA pair(s) of the target protein, we visualize and monitor its translation
Using all 48 tRNA pairs together, we can monitor the cell’s complete protein translation activity
Using the signature pairs for its group of proteins, we can visualize and monitor the translation of a pathway
With multiple proprietary assays, our technology helps in identifying the molecular targets of translation modulating drugs
Multiple secondary assays use proprietary techniques to identify non-toxic compounds that specifically control the target’s translation
State of the art machine learning algorithms analyze billions of data points to identify translation modulating compounds
Proprietary image analysis algorithms run over millions of images to select images where the “translation light” has been affected
85% of known proteins have a “signature tRNA pair” that repeats with high frequency in their sequence but is relatively rare in the background human genome

With our technology we can visualize and specifically control the synthesis of target proteins, enabling a new strategy against many severe diseases

Translation Control Lab

Anima’s Translation Control Lab (TCL) is purpose-built for the discovery of translation modulators by integrating our proprietary technologies in biology, bioinformatics, big data image analysis and cloud software architecture

Protein Synthesis Monitoring assay, the use of labeled tRNA as FRET pairs to monitor ribosome activity in the selected cellular system
PSM assay in a selected cellular system is used to screen a small molecule library of compounds towards the identification of compounds which change the PSM signal
Unbiased scores are generated from more than 90 features extracted from images
Images captured by Operetta® are automatically uploaded to the Cloud using proprietary plate processing software
QA measures are executed to eliminate outliers wells and cells and to identify false positives
State of the art image analysis algorithms extract unique PSM and additional cellular features as a feed for the big data analysis
All images are captured by Operetta®, and the clean, calculated, PSM images is generated automatically
FRET controls, assay controls are located at specific wells in all screens, enabling strict QA algorithms
PSM design is based on proprietary mathematical algorithms analyzing the relevant RNA code
Powerful visual and analytical tools enable us to view the results online from various mathematical and biological angles
All biological data and results are kept in a customized industry standard bio data center
The analysis utilizes proprietary biological big data algorithms designed for translation control modulators discovery with high level of statistical significance
