  • Publication number: 20200080126
    Abstract: There is a method for selective translation of a desired protein. The method has the steps of (a) providing two half cores of a deoxyribozyme, wherein each half core includes a pendant assembly arm of a strand of nucleic acids extending therefrom and a separate, pendant binding arm extending therefrom of a strand of nucleic acids; (b) binding a nucleic acid ligand to each of the two assembly arms to form an intermediate; (c) binding the intermediate to (i) a first substrate of ribonucleic acid sequences capped at one end, (ii) a second substrate of a strand of ribonucleic acids having a 5? triphosphate region at one end and a region of polyadenylated nucleotides at the other end and wherein the second substrate codes for the desired protein, (iii) join the two half cores to form a core in order to form a ligated product; and (d) allowing the translation for the desired protein to proceed from the ligated product. There is another method for selective translation of a desired protein.

  • Patent number: 10536123
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for volume interactions for connected playback devices. In an example implementation, a first playback device applies a state variable update associated with a group of playback devices comprising the first playback device and one or more second playback devices. The state variable update indicates a limited volume range associated with the first playback device. The first playback device renders audio content in synchrony with the one or more second playback devices. Rendering the audio content involves a subwoofer speaker of the first playback device rendering a bass frequency component of the audio content. The first playback device receives input data indicating a group volume adjustment for the group of playback devices and adjusting a playback volume of the first playback device based on the group volume adjustment and the limited volume range.

  • Patent number: 9379683
    Abstract: Methods and systems are provided for volume interactions for connected playback devices. In one example, a playback device applies a state variable update associated with a playback device in a plurality of playback devices, the state variable update indicating a limited volume range associated with the playback device. The playback device receives data indicating a group volume adjustment for the plurality of playback devices. The playback device determines that applying the group volume adjustment to the playback device would not result in the playback volume of the playback device exceeding the volume limitation of the playback device. Based on the determination that applying the group volume adjustment to the playback device would not result in the playback volume of the playback device exceeding the volume limitation of the playback device, the playback device adjusts the playback volume of the playback device according to the group volume adjustment.
