The results showed the dimeric AFGP to be non-toxic in the same manner the monomeric AFGP tested.
This second generation AFGP is a clear indication of the company's ability to customize this molecule with desired characteristics to adapt to the cell line or tissue being preserved.
will be able to recycle fiberglass with its patented process and create environmentally superior replacements for steel, concrete and treated wood in the ground and in our water ways.
This family of commercially viable synthetic AFGPs
(Anti Freeze Glyco Proteins) has been proven to be stable, non-toxic and highly effective in:
Since the DHS established the AFGP in 2001 (formerly known as the FIRE Act Grant), FETN has helped departments secure nearly $10 million in grant funds.
The AFGP application period is scheduled to end April 8, so the sooner departments begin working on their proposals, the better.

funds may continue to be appropriated in 2005, 2006 and beyond.
Under the AFGP

have thus far not found application in cryopreservation due to their low availability from natural sources, extremely challenging synthesis, indications of cytotoxicity, but more importantly they have a side effect of shaping ice crystals into needle-shapes which pierces cells membranes, killing them.
