  • Publication number: 20210339532
    Abstract: A single pass inkjet printer that utilizes a modular printing system with one or more self-contained printing modules, where each printing module is easy to remove and replace from a large printing machine, thus resulting in an overall system that is easy to service and maintain. Each module is a self-contained printer including an ink supply, printhead drive electronics, and printhead assembly in order to provide one color or fluid of inkjet printing capability. Each module includes a precise three-point compliant self-aligning mount system to obtain accurate printhead positioning, and a unique integrated printhead tending system that includes a compact movable vacuum knife for cleaning the printheads, and a printhead capping station for sealing and protecting the printheads from the ambient environment when not in use.

  • Publication number: 20210283922
    Abstract: A method of recycling ink used in non-printing nozzle dispensing operations in an ink jet printer, comprises collecting the ink from the non-printing operation in a collection tray, draining the ink from the collection tray into a closed cell, draining the ink from the closed cell, filtering the ink draining from the closed cell, and adding the ink back to a main ink supply after filtering, the main ink supply containing fresh ink. To maintain the quality of the ink supply the proportion of recycled to fresh ink may be limited to a maximum.

  • Publication number: 20210271658
    Abstract: Disclosed are system and methods for processing and storing data files, using a data edge file format. The data edge file separates information about what symbols are in a data file and information about the corresponding location of those symbols in the data file. The described technique for converting a source file comprising symbols into a data edge file includes: generating a locality file of symbol location from the source file to identify locations of the symbols in the source file, generating a symbol file to identify symbols in the source file, and then modifying the locality file of symbol location to associate each symbol from the symbol file with a location in the source file.

  • Publication number: 20210046148
    Abstract: Disclosed are compositions and methods for triggering disease selective macropinocytosis. The compositions can serve as a marker of disease activity and as a trigger of enhanced macropinocytosis in tissues undergoing disease remodeling such as wound healing, cancer, PAH, inflammation, diabetes, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, ankylosing spondylitis, diseases of the endometrium, psoriasis, irritable bowel syndrome, arthritis, fibrotic disorders, interstitial cystitis, autoimmune diseases, asthma, acute lung injury, and adult respiratory distress syndrome. The compositions can also serve as a receptor for disease selective cell penetrating peptides in the cells and extracellular matrix of diseased tissues.

  • Publication number: 20200277621
    Abstract: Provided are methods, vectors and gene constructs for enhancing expression of a recombinant nucleic acid sequence in transgenic plants and plant tissues. According to the present invention, nucleic acid sequences are obtained and/or derived from the 3? untranslated regions of Zea mays chlorophyll a/b binding protein gene and engineered to flank respective portions of a selected coding region of a vector. The vector construct may be introduced into plants and/or plant tissues through conventional or gene targeting procedures, resulting in enhanced expression of the selected coding region. In some embodiments, the selected coding region is a chimeric gene or gene fragment expressing one or more proteins known to impart a level of insecticidal activity to a transgenic plant and/or plant tissue.

  • Publication number: 20200109808
    Abstract: An attenuator for high pressure fluid systems is provided. The attenuator includes a shielding stud including first and second ends, a cylindrical space extending therebetween, and a housing fixedly coupled to the first end. The attenuator includes a body disposed within the cylindrical space and defining a pressure chamber therein. The body includes an engaging wall extending axially beyond an opening to the pressure chamber and defines a sealing chamber therein. A seal head positioned within the sealing chamber is coupled to the body using a tensioner assembly coupled to the engaging wall. The seal head is engaged with the body first end to define a seal therebetween and an end cap is coupled to the second end of the shielding stud and the seal head. The end cap can apply a compressive force to the seal head to compress the seal head against the body and apply a tensile load to the shielding stud.

  • Patent number: 10443065
    Abstract: This disclosure concerns compositions and methods for promoting transcription and translation of a nucleotide sequence in a plant or plant cell, employing a promoter and/or a 3?UTR from Zea mays Zrp2 gene. Some embodiments relate to a promoter from a Zea mays Zrp2 gene that is operably linked to a Zea mays Ubiquitin 1 intron and functions in plants to promote transcription of operably linked nucleotide sequences. Other embodiments relate to a 3? UTR from a Zea mays Zrp2 gene that functions in plants to terminate transcription of operably linked nucleotide sequences.

  • Patent number: 10261996
    Abstract: Disclosed are systems, methods, and non-transitory computer-readable storage media for obtaining a translation of a previous version of a display item to present on a graphical user interface when a translation of a current version of the display item is unavailable. A client device can request a translation of a display item in a graphical user interface invoked by the client device. The client device can send a server a first key corresponding to the current version of the display item, a second key corresponding to a previous version of the display item, and locale information describing the current location and/or language preferences of the client device. If the server cannot obtain a translation corresponding to the first key, the server can obtain a translation of the previous version of the display item in the language associated with the locale based on the second key.
