Hyunmin Kang 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).
Abstract: A connector includes a connector body coupled to the toy gun to be connected with an upper portion of the magazine; a hole formed to pass through front end of the connector body and configured to accommodate a projectile provided by the magazine; a projectile fixing portion positioned on the connector body in which the hole is formed and configured to fix the projectile provided via the hole; a projectile sensing portion which senses whether or not a projectile remains in the hole, a position of the projectile sensing portion being changed depending on whether or not a projectile remains in the hole; and a first protrusion interlocked with the projectile sensing portion, the first protrusion moving forward or backward to control a stopper depending on whether or not a projectile remains in the hole, the stopper allowing or blocking movement of a cylinder of the toy gun.
Abstract: Provided is a connector for a toy gun having a feature for detecting whether or not a projectile remains. The connector includes a connector body coupled to the toy gun to be connected with an upper portion of a magazine when the magazine is inserted into the toy gun, a hole formed to pass through front end of the connector body and configured to accommodate the projectile provided by the magazine, a projectile fixing portion positioned on the connector body in which the hole is formed to fix the projectile provided via the hole, a projectile sensing portion which senses whether or not a projectile remains in the hole; and a first protrusion interlocked with the projectile sensing portion to control movement of a cylinder of the toy gun depending on whether or not a projectile remains in the hole.
Abstract: Provided is a toy gun with an exterior mimicking a real gun and operating very similarly as a real gun, and the toy gun includes a main body provided with a cartridge chamber into which a projectile is loaded, a cylinder formed to reciprocate inside the main body for being ready to fire, a piston which moves backward along with the cylinder when the cylinder moves backward and enters the cylinder to provide the cartridge chamber with compressed air when the projectile is fired, a driving unit which moves the cylinder backward in the main body, and a control unit which controls power supplied to the driving unit depending on a position of the cylinder.
Abstract: Disclosed herein are oligonucleotide conjugates that include ligands that target cell receptors that mediate endocytosis. The ligands can include peptides and small molecules. The conjugates can include carrier macromolecules to which the ligands and oligonucleotides are attached, or conjugates where an oligonucleotide is attached to a ligand in the absence of a carrier macromolecule. The oligonucleotides can include therapeutic oligonucleotides, such as siRNA, antisense RNA and miRNA. The ligand can be an RGD peptide. Also disclosed herein are methods of delivering the conjugates to cells in subjects.

Abstract: Systems and methods are provided for the identification of genotype-phenotype associations in genome-wide association (GWA) studies. In an illustrative implementation, a data correlation environment comprises a population structure engine and at least one instruction set to instruct the population structure engine to process pedigree or population genetic data to generate a population structure sub-model according to a selected graphical model-based data correlation paradigm. Illustratively, the parameter of the resulting generalized linear mixed model can be learned using a variational approximation.

Abstract: The presently disclosed subject matter relates to the delivery of oligonucleotides to cells through the delivery of a composition or reagent comprising a hybridization complex comprising a first antisense oligonucleotide which is modified to have a higher stability against degradation, and a second sense oligonucleotide which is prone to degradation. The presently disclosed subject matter furthermore relates to dendrimeric bioconjugates and compositions or reagents comprising them, wherein the bioconjugate comprises a conjugate moiety coupled to a dendrimeric structure and to their use to deliver oligomeric compounds including oligonucleotides or duplexes, as described above, to cells for modulation of gene expression (i.e. antisense or antigene therapy/research, RNA interference).

Abstract: Anthraquinone derivatives are constructed for alkylation of target molecules. The anthraquinone derivative includes an anthraquinone ring system which has been modified by the addition of inducibly reactive substituents at positions on the ring system. The anthraquinone ring system can be selectively activated for alkylation of a target molecule. The substituents may be from 1 to 4 methyl groups, whereupon activation is achieved by a photochemical signal. In an additional alternative embodiment, the inducible reactive substituents may include both methyl groups and substituted methylene groups. In this embodiment, the activation of the anthraquinone derivative is achieved by photochemical and/or reductive signals. Alternatively, the substituents may be from 1 to 8 methyl groups modified to include a reactive group, whereupon activation is achieved by a chemical or enzymatic reductive signal. The anthraquinone derivatives of the invention may be used for non-specific modification of target molecules.
