VG Energy Enters into a Strategic Alliance with DAK Renewable Research for LipidMax Field Trials

SAN MARINO, Calif., May 23, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- VG Energy, an agricultural biotech company, announces today a strategic alliance with DAK Renewable Research to conduct field trials using LipidMax to increase the corn oil yield. VG Energy is a majority owned subsidiary of VG Life Sciences, Inc. (OTC Pink: VGLS).

VG Energy's exclusively licensed compound LipidMax selectively inhibits certain metabolic pathways to increase the oil yield in plants, possessing a wide variety of applications including biofuel and vegetable oils.  This important discovery is called Metabolic Disruption Technology.

DAK Renewable Research headquartered in Brandon, South Dakota brings agricultural innovations together with investors. It is primarily focused on developing viable and cost-effective green energy solutions. DAK is providing twelve 2,000 ft2 plots in South Dakota to measure the effect of LipidMax in corn oil production and test the robustness of LipidMax in field conditions. The compound will be applied at multiple stages in the growth cycle of the corn. The crop will reach maturity in mid-October and results will be announced shortly thereafter. All data from the results will be exclusively owned by VG Energy.

"We are excited to see our product take this leap from the lab to the field," says Haig Keledjian , CEO of VG Life Sciences. "Our goal with these tests is to further approach market commercialization and getting LipidMax closer to being in the hands of farmers."

The inventor of Metabolic Disruption Technology (MDT) is Karen Newell , PhD at Texas A&M University School of Medicine and Chief Scientist at VG Life Sciences. Dr. Marty Dickman , PhD at Texas A&M University, is the Chief Scientific Advisor for VG Life Sciences on the agricultural side of the business. Together Dr. Newell and Dr. Dickman are testing and developing exciting MDT agricultural applications including LipidMax.

"We have seen very positive lab results on oil yields using LipidMax and now we are anxious to see if we get similar yields in the field," said Dr. Dickman. "Yield is the watchword of every farmer and our partners at DAK Renewable Research are the perfect facilitators to bring this all together."
