Upādāya prajñapti; designation on a cause: “upādānam upādāya prajñapti”, which is “designation having composed a composition”.

upādāya prajñaptiḥ (without the upādāna) is a well-attested phrase in Sanskrit: it occurs in the root verse MMK 24.18 that Avalokitavrata is (sub-)commenting on, and Candrakīrti also uses it many times in his commentary. He never links it with upādānam, instead using similar words like "skandhān upādāya prajñapyate" or "saṃskārān upādāya prajñaptaḥ" The basic idea is the same, so *upādāna-upādāya-prajñapti is a very plausible reconstruction.
