Patents by Inventor Arunava Manna

Arunava Manna has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Publication number: 20190337986
    Abstract: Described herein are recognition modules that bind specifically to a template nucleic acid and which ligate together in a reducing environment to produce a gamma peptide nucleic acid (?PNA) oligomer. Also provided are methods of synthesizing a ?PNA oligomer on a template using the recognition modules.
    Type: Application

  • Patent number: 10370415
    Abstract: Described herein are novel divalent nucleobases that each bind two nucleic acid strands, matched or mismatched when incorporated into a nucleic acid or nucleic acid analog backbone (a genetic recognition reagent, or genetic recognition reagent). In one embodiment, the genetic recognition reagent is a peptide nucleic acid (PNA) or gamma PNA (?PNA) oligomer. Uses of the divalent nucleobases and monomers and genetic recognition reagents containing the divalent nucleobases also are provided.

  • Publication number: 20170058325
    Abstract: A method of making optically pure preparations of chiral ?PNA (gamma peptide nucleic acid) monomers is provided. Nano structures comprising chiral ?PNA structures also are provided. Methods of amplifying and detecting specific nucleic acids, including in situ methods are provided as well as compositions and kits useful in those methods. Lastly, methods of converting nucleobase sequences from right-handed helical PNA, nucleic acid and nucleic acid analog structures to left-handed ?PNA, and vice-versa, are provided.
