Development of a XBP1 Sequencing Kit
baseclick is developing a diagnostic research tool for breast cancer, glioblastoma and prostate cancer. A very good candidate is the transcription XBP1. Expression of mutated XBP1 has been implicated in cancer progression. Its functions as transcription factor and depletion of normal XBP1 as well as expression of mutated XBP1 in cancer cells leads to cell division. Mutated XBP1 is produced in stressed cells and cancer situation when the IRE1 switches from its normal chaperon function in the ER to RNase function and unnatural cytoplasmic splicing of XBP1 mRNA occurs (XBP1s/XBP1u) leading to two forms of XBP1 protein in cancer cells. Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) lacks targeted therapies and has a worse prognosis than other breast cancer subtypes, underscoring an urgent need for new therapeutic targets and strategies. Our goal is to identify the best treatment for every single patient (enables personalized medicine) and monitor the treatment via transcriptome analysis.

IRE1/XBP1 drug development
The trans autophosphorylation of the kinase domain of IRE1 activates its unusual effector function, which causes the unconventional splicing of the mRNA that encodes a transcription factor XBP1. Abnormalities in XBP1 lead to ER stress and subsequently causes susceptibility for inflammatory processes that contribute to cancer. baseclick started a program whereby oligonucleotides are tested to inhibit RNase activity of IRE1 for anticancer therapy.

Inhibition of SARS-CoV-2 replication
Development of RNA / DNA gene scissors for specific cleavage of viral SARS-CoV-2 genomes to inhibit viral replication. The overall goal is to design a SARS-CoV-2 drug based on an artificial gene editing method. Therefore, an oligo linked with a metal complexes capable of cutting will direct the “gene scissor” to the SARS-CoV-2 RNA in infected cells leading to inhibition of viral replication.
