Ⅰ. Introduction

Precise Drug Target Identification is a first step for improving efficacy, tracing and avoiding side-effects as well as understanding the mode-of-actions of drug candidates. However, until now, effective systematic approaches for the precise drug target identification at genome levels have not been commercially available. Using S. pombe genome-wide heterozygous deletion mutant library, Bioneer has developed a high-throughput genome-wide drug target screening service system (GPScreen™) and made it commercially available for your drug discovery needs. GPScreen™ screening service covers a broad spectrum of drug candidates in whole disease areas from cancers & metabolic diseases to neglected & rare diseases and, therefore, will provide the total solutions for an efficient drug discovery through providing clear-cut answers to problems such as drug-target(s) and toxicity as well as mode-of-actions of drug candidates.


KOG Analysis of S.pombe Genome

"Bioneer's GPScreen™ using S. pombe genome-wide heterozygous deletion mutant library has enabled genome-wide screening for drug target identification"

GPScreen™ is based on Bioneer's unique S. pombe genome-wide deletion mutant library, which was developed by Bioneer and the Korea Research Institute of Bioscience & Biotechnology (KRIBB) in collaboration with Dr. Paul Nurse of Cancer Research Center UK (Nat. Biotech, 28, 617–623 (2010)). It can be used for genetic and chemical screening such as drug target identification, gene expression profiling and synthetic lethal profiling.



This mutant library comprised of a total of 4,840 heterozygous diploid deletion mutants representing 98.5% genome coverage and one copy of a specific gene in each mutant was deleted by homologous recombination. GPScreen™ exclusively offers S. pombe deletion mutant library as a powerful tool for large-scale genetic functional analysis, identification and verification research of drug targets and for integrated systems research of cell function.



Ⅱ. Principle of GPScreen

"Drug-induced Haploinsufficiency (DIH)" is a situation in which a strain with a heterozygous gene deletion (producing target proteins to about half of normal levels), result in cells sensitive to a specific drug. DIH occurs when a drug or drug candidate acts on a mutant strain in which the level of target gene protein is lowered from normal to half level, and is considered to be a valuable tool for drug target identification. Previously, a number of reports have provided identifications of drug targets using DIH in budding yeast S. cerevisiae (Baetz K et al., 2004; Lum et al., 2004). However, fission yeast S. pombe is considered a better model of mammalian cells since its cell cycle regulation is closer to that of mammalian cells than that of S. cerevisiae








"GPScreen™ utilizes DIH in the fission yeast S. pombe genome-wide heterozygous deletion mutant library to identify the drug target(s).

Ⅲ. Performance of GPScreen

GPScreen™ is a best-in class genome-wide drug target identification system that is exclusively offered by Bioneer Inc. It allows for the clear-cut identification of molecular targets of drugs/ drug candidates (A representative is below).


Figure 1. Drug Target Identification using GPScreen™.

In the presence of cytochalasin A (Fig. 1A), a heterozygous deletion mutant of act1 shows decreased growth as a result of a decrease in "functional" Act1 protein. act1 was the only gene in the genome-wide screen to show this effect, demonstrating that act1 is a target of cytochalasin A (Fig. 1B).


IV. Applications of GPScreen

  • Toxicity profiling and Drug Prioritization
  • Drug Repositioning and Enhancement
  • Natural Drug Target Discovery
  • Chemogenomic profiling


Toxicity profiling using
GPScreen™ at early stage of drug development would accommodate 'Drug Prioritization' among drug candidates very efficiently, thereby reducing time and money dramatically in the later stage of drug discovery.

ORTHentication Services exclusively from Bioneer

ORTHentication Services (Ortholog-Authentication services) provide an siRNA-based gene susceptibility test for human orthologs identified through GPScreen™. This allows for validation of the drug targets in human cells. This is done via a method that is similar to Haploinsufficiency screens in yeast (See our GPScreen): the cells are exposed to the drug and a GI50 is determined for wild type cells. Then they are exposed to the same level of drug after siRNA treatment and subsequent knockdown of the target gene. If the gene in question is being targeted by the drug candidate, then the knockdown of the gene would have a further deleterious effect on cell growth – clearly validating the Human ortholog as a drug target.


Target validation services include

Discovering human orthologs of drug target genes identified through GPScreen™ via rigorous bioinformatics analysis
Design and synthesis of siRNAs targeting the human orthologs using our exclusive genome-wide human siRNA library (AccuTarget Genome-wide Predesigned siRNA library)
Validation of the drug target in human cells by co-treatment of siRNA targeting the corresponding human ortholog (direct mimicking of haploinsufficiency of S. pombe system) followed by the drug treatment
Cell biology analysis including proliferation assays in the presence of siRNA and drug; analysis of phenotypic outcome and mode-of-action of the drug

ORTHentication Services are especially well suited for rapid drug repositioning and allow you to fast-track to clinical trial using drug candidates whose toxicity and efficacy tests have been previously completed.


In vivo Validation of ORTHentic (Ortholog-Authentic) genes

Once positively identified, the Human Orthologs can be further validated in an in vivo mouse model. To achieve this, the mouse homolog of the human gene is pulled from our genome-wide mouse siRNA library. This gene is then synthesized into our novel SAMiRNA (Self-Assembled Micelle siRNA) prodrug using a proprietary synthesis method. SAMiRNA is a novel prodrug that is stable in vivo for several days and can be targeted to cell types through targeting molecules on its surface. SAMiRNA also naturally targets Tumors and cancerous tissue through enhanced permeability and retention effects. It has been demonstrated to have no detectable toxicity at therapeutic levels and is the best vehicle for in vivo siRNA delivery available.

SAMiRNA (Self-Assembled-Micelle-interfering-RNA)

One of the major hurdles for the development of RNA interference (RNAi)-based therapeutics is siRNA delivery. SAMiRNA (Self-Assembled-Micelle-interfering-RNA) is a novel class of RNAi molecule developed by Bioneer. The therapeutic potential of SAMiRNA is highlighted by virtue of its negligible toxicity and superb in vivo serum stability as well as its target gene silencing efficacy. These data indicate SAMiRNA’s exceptional therapeutic potential as an RNAi platform for a variety of diseases. Development of SAMiRNA system combines Bioneer’s extensive nucleic acid chemistry and pre-clinical research with our nucleic acid manufacturing and development expertise, which has been providing top-quality DNA oligos and siRNAs worldwide for close to 20 years.
