  • Patent number: 10783133
    Abstract: The subject matter described herein provides techniques to ensure that queries of a distributed database observe a consistent read of the database without locking or logging. In this regard, next-write timestamps uniquely identify a set of write transactions whose updates can be observed by reads. By publishing the next-write timestamps from within an extendable time lease and tracking a “safe timestamp,” the database queries can be executed without logging read operations or blocking future write transactions, and clients issuing the queries at the “safe timestamp” observe a consistent view of the database as it exists on or before that timestamp. Aspects of this disclosure also provide for extensions, done cheaply and without the need for logging, to the range of timestamps at which read transactions can be executed.

  • Patent number: 10775837
    Abstract: The present technology proposes techniques for generating globally coherent timestamps. This technology may allow distributed systems to causally order transactions without incurring various types of communication delays inherent in explicit synchronization. By globally deploying a number of time masters that are based on various types of time references, the time masters may serve as primary time references. Through an interactive interface, the techniques may track, calculate and record data relative to each time master thus providing the distributed systems with causal timestamps.

  • Publication number: 20200062861
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to novel glycosynthase enzymes for glycoprotein engineering and/or homogeneous antibody remodeling. The enzyme variants, termed EndoSd-D232M and EndoSz-D234M, contain the glycan conjugation and/or modification activity at the conserved N297 glycosylation site of Fc region of an exemplary antibody. It has been demonstrated that the glycosynthase activities of EndoSd-D232M and EndoSz-D234M can be applied to various mAbs targeting different receptors, including, but not limited to, Globo H, SSEA-4, SSEA-3 series of receptors (OBI-888; Globo H ganglioside), Herceptin (Her 2 receptor), Perjeta (Her 2 receptor) and Vectibix (EGFR receptor). It has been found that both mAb-GlcNAc and mAb-GlucNAc(F) were suitable substrates for both EndoSd-D232M and EndoSz-D234M. The ADCC assay of related products, OBI-888-G2S2 and Herceptin-G2S2, showed that the remodeled homogeneous antibody, mAb-G2S2, has an increased relative activity ranging from 3 to 26 folds.
