  • Publication number: 20210046155
    Abstract: Nucleic acid molecules that include a nucleotide sequence encoding a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) and a nucleotide sequence encoding a protease sensitive scFv, wherein the chimeric antigen receptor comprises: an scFv targeting a tumor antigen, a spacer, a transmembrane domain, a co-stimulatory domain, and a CD3 ? signaling domain; and the protease-sensitive scFv and the scFv target the same tumor antigen are described.

  • Patent number: 8999011
    Abstract: This invention relates to low sulfur marine/bunker fuel compositions and methods of making same. Contrary to conventional marine/bunker fuel compositions/methods, the inventive lower sulfur compositions/methods focus on use of mostly uncracked components, such as (cat feed) hydrotreated gasoils, and/or can also have reduced contents of residual components.

  • Patent number: 8957266
    Abstract: Provided are processes for making one or more unsaturated oligomeric acids and one or more saturated hydrocarbons. In one form, a process for making one or more saturated hydrocarbons includes oligomerizing one or more unsaturated carboxylic acids having from 4 to 38 carbon atoms in the presence of a molecular sieve catalyst to form one or more unsaturated oligomeric acids including less than 90% by weight of cyclic oligomers, and hydrogenating the one or more unsaturated oligomeric acids via contact with hydrogen in the presence of a hydrogenation catalyst to form one or more saturated hydrocarbons. The oligomerizing of unsaturated fatty acids is from renewable biological sources to form dimer acids. The one or more saturated hydrocarbons are useful as lubricant base oils.

  • Patent number: 8772562
    Abstract: A process for converting feedstock triglycerides to lube basestocks. The process has the steps of (a) metathesizing the feedstock triglycerides with ethylene in the presence of a metathesis catalyst to form alpha olefins and medium-chain triglycerides and (b) hydroisomerizing the medium-chain triglycerides in the presence of a hydroisomerization catalyst and hydrogen to form methyl-branched triglycerides. The alpha olefins may be oligomerized in the presence of an oligomerization catalyst to form poly(alpha olefins).
