  • Publication number: 20210139876
    Abstract: The present invention relates to protease variants, having improved properties compared to the parent protease, in particular variants of a serine protease belonging to family 53 derived from a strain of Meripilus giganteus. The variants according to the invention have in particular increased thermo-stability, e.g., increased residual activity after 30 min at a temperature in the range from 55 to 60° C. and/or increased thermal denaturation temperature, compared to the parent Meripilus giganteus protease. The present invention also relates to polynucleotides encoding the variants; nucleic acid constructs, vectors, and host cells comprising the polynucleotides; and methods of using the variants.

  • Patent number: 7985199
    Abstract: This invention relates to an injection site or gateway or a system comprising such an injection site or gateway. In one form the invention concerns a system comprising an inserter device and a gateway for subcutaneous injection of fluid where comprises a distal surface (1a) corresponding to a proximal surface (1b) integrated with the inserter device. In another form the invention concerns a gateway for subcutaneous injection of fluid, which gateway comprises —a body (1) with at least one through-going opening (6) with an entrance and an outlet, and at least one cannula (3) and having a proximal end protruding from the lower side of the body; —and at the entrance of the through-going opening medication can be injected by a delivery device (20) which delivery device has protruding parts (22) which form an inner opening with a diameter di; wherein the surface of the entrance is shaped in such a way that the cross-section of the top part of entrance, i.e.
