Join KACTUS at TIDES USA, the industry’s largest event for oligo and peptide therapeutics! We're excited to showcase our GMP-grade gene editing and mRNA transcription enzymes that are designed to move with you from preclinical development to CMC operations and commercial manufacturing. Stop by Booth #818 to discuss how we can elevate your drug or therapy to the next level.


Featured Poster Presentation 

#141: Versatile T7 RNA Polymerases that Generate Less Immunostimulatory mRNA

Our poster explores the use of T7 RNA polymerase (T7 RNAP) in in vitro transcription (IVT) for mRNA synthesis—a well-established method for producing high quantities of synthetic RNA. Despite its efficiency, T7 RNAP can produce immunostimulatory byproducts like double-stranded RNA (dsRNA). Addressing these challenges, we've developed a series of engineered T7 RNAP mutants. Our findings highlight their enhanced processivity and yield, alongside a significant reduction in undesirable byproducts compared to both wild-type and other commercially available enzymes.


Why Attend TIDES USA?

TIDES USA is the largest and most respected event dedicated to accelerating oligo and peptide therapeutics to market. It's the ideal platform for exploring the latest strategies to fast-track R&D and enhance CMC efficiency.
