A Chinese researcher arrested in the United States provided Nagoya’s Medical & Biological Laboratories Co. with genetic information around December 1999 that he allegedly stole from a Harvard Medical School lab to make an antibody, informed sources said Monday.

Zhu Jiangyu, 30, and his Japanese wife, Kayoko Kinbara, 32, were arrested June 19 by the FBI on charges of conspiracy, theft of trade secrets and interstate transportation of stolen property while they were postdoctoral fellows at Harvard’s cell biology department. They were released on bail June 27.
