ADTZ is an innovative product developed by Guangzhou Co-win Bioengineering Co., Ltd ("Co-Win"). ADTZ can be used for detoxifying Aflatoxin (“AFT”) in food, feed and health care industries.
1. Feed Industry: ADTZ can be used as an additive to remove the AFT toxin from feed as well as other food-related products, such as dairy products, flavorings, and peanut oil, among others. Because of the Company’s patent protection, ADTZ has many potential applications in the feed industry as well as in the industrial enzyme market.
2. Food Industry: Currently, it is not possible to detoxify AFT-infected milk. Alkali treatment and UV radiation are used to detoxify peanut oil, but these methods may affect the quality of the peanut oil. ADTZ can detoxify AFB1 under specific conditions, and it has no effect on peanut oil quality and storage.
3. Health Care Industry: ADTZ has shown promising signs in the prevention and the treatment of gastric carcinoma, primary hepatocarcinoma (PHC) and lung cancer. It can be developed into therapeutic products that target liver, stomach and other cancers.
4. Detection and Genetically Modified Crops: ADTZ has the potential to be developed into an enzyme biosensor for detecting AFT in food and feed as well as for use in custom and sanitation inspection. Additionally, transferring the ADTZ gene to the genome of crops will enable them to develop AFT-resistant properties by expressing the ADTZ gene.
