Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB.OB) Makes Significant Breakthrough in the Labs Earlier this month, Kraig Biocraft Laboratories announced that its scientific team, including Dr. Malcolm Fraser, Dr. Wang, Dr. Sohn, and other members, have found a process capable of doubling the number of gene transfers performed, greatly increasing productivity of the spider silk and high performance polymer development program. Kraig Biocraft is focused on developing and commercializing high performance polymers using spider silk gene sequences. The company intends to participate in the $92 billion market for high performance and technical fibers. Last year, Kraig Biocraft Laboratories signed an intellectual property and collaborative research agreement with the University of Notre Dame and has since then been a proud sponsor of scientific research within the university. CEO Kim K. Thompson commented, “Until recently, we were performing approximately 200 to 400 micro-injections for DNA transfer on a weekly basis. With the huge increase in brain-power that resulted from the University of Notre Dame’s addition of Dr. Wang, Dr. Sohn and other scientists to the team, we have seen a dramatic increase in both the quality and quantity of the work performed. Significantly, we are currently performing approximately 1,000 gene transfers in a single week. That puts us well ahead of our development target. Every gene transfer performed has the potential to result in the development of a new polymer or high performance fiber.” “The new research team is proceeding in a systematic fashion to optimize the procedures to generate a good number of transgenic,” said Dr. Fraser, a member of Kraig’s Scientific Advisory Board and the head of the University of Notre Dame laboratory where the gene insertions are taking place. “Based upon what I see happening in the laboratory and with this team of scientists, I have every expectation that this is going to be a very good year,” Dr. Fraser added. “This heightened pace,” interjected Thompson, “has been accompanied by a reformulation of the DNA inserts. The increase in productivity has been so great that instead of using a single DNA construct, we are now using multiple constructs. This is a very exciting time for the research team and Kraig.” Please see disclaimer on QualityStocks website:

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB.OB): Why is Spider Silk Exciting Technology? Kraig Biocraft Laboratories is a biotechnology company primarily focused on pursuing a unique protein expression system with the objective of producing the next generation of technical fibers. The company is utilizing state of the art genetic techniques in order to develop a transgenic silkworm capable of producing commercially viable amounts of spider silk. Spider silk is known as one of the strongest fibers found in nature. The fiber is extremely elastic and resilient and has several properties that are unmatched by even the most exotic of man-made fibers. Spider silk has an unparalleled ability to absorb energy and dissipate it in a very controlled manner, making it especially attractive for applications where energy absorption is a key design factor. One of spider silk’s most significant properties is its extreme resistance to breaking under strain. This characteristic makes spider silk particularly appealing for use as a “super fiber.” Pound for pound, spider silk is much stronger than steel with clear evidence of spider silk being at least five times stronger than steel of the same diameter. There is little debate whether spider silk is superior over many other man-made and natural fibers for certain applications, however the issue is how to cost effectively produce spider silk in sufficient quantities. With Kraig Biocraft’s leading team of scientific experts and breakthroughs taking place in the lab, the world is closer than ever to experiencing the many benefits offered by this exciting technology.

This market encompasses a wide range of products used for numerous applications. The specific sub-sectors the company is targeting can be broken down into two main areas: aramid fibers and ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene fibers. The worldwide market for these fibers and other high performance technical fibers is currently estimated at approximately $90 billion per year, with the United States accounting for 50%+ of the market. According to a research report completed by Emerging Growth Research, the market has experienced significant growth over the past 10 years and is expected to continue to perform at a robust growth rate over the coming years. While there are already man-made products well established in the marketplace, Kraig Biocraft’s spider silk contains certain properties that are superior to these synthetically derived products. For example, although Kevlar can be measured to have greater tensile strength versus spider silk on a pound per pound basis, the product pales in comparison to spider silk’s ability to absorb energy prior to fiber breakage. Additionally, products made using spider silk could be completely biodegradable, a feature that has been purposely engineered out of competing high-performance fiber products.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB.OB) Successfully Activates the Market DNA in Silkworms Indicating Significant Progress Kraig Biocraft excitedly announced today that the scientific team has achieved the activation of fluorescent marker gene sequences that were incorporated into spider silk DNA packets by the researchers. The team has successfully inserted the DNA packets into silkworms, which are now visibly emitting florescence. CEO Kim K. Thompson commented, “The fact that we are now seeing fluorescence in the modified silkworms establishes that the DNA insertion packets are working and that we have succeeded in obtaining chromosomal insertion and expression. In other words, not only are the DNA packets incorporating themselves into the silkworm chromosome as expected, the silkworms are actually producing the fluorescent proteins as they are instructed to do by the genetic coding in the spider silk insertion packets.” The DNA packets contain the genetic instructions for the production of new spider silk based fibers and textiles. The florescent marker sequences, which are included in the packets, instruct the silkworm to produce florescent proteins. Because the silkworm is producing florescent proteins, the scientists know that they have succeeded in altering its DNA, because silkworms do not naturally produce florescent proteins. This achievement is a huge step forward for Kraig Labs. The fact that these proteins are markers establishes that the DNA packets have been successfully transferred. “The atmosphere here is one of tremendous excitement,” said Thompson. “Another generation will be required in order to test whether we have achieved a germ line stable transgenic,” continued Mr. Thompson. “The team will be able to test the next generation for the florescent makers within the ten days. From then on, we should have a new generation of silkworms ready for testing at regular intervals of approximately fourteen days. This is a dramatic shift forward in the Company’s spider silk and high performance polymer development program.” Please see disclaimer on QualityStocks website:
