  • Patent number: 11036670
    Abstract: A electronic device includes a USB Type-C interface, a switching circuit, a first signal path, and a second signal path. The USB Type-C interface is configured to connect to a USB Type-C device. The switching circuit is connected to the USB Type-C interface, the first signal path, and the second signal path. When the USB Type-C interface is connected to the USB Type-C device, the first signal path is connected to the USB Type-C interface through the switching circuit, and a level of a first pin of the USB Type-C interface is a first level. When the USB Type-C interface is disconnected from the USB Type-C device, the second signal path is connected to the USB Type-C interface through the switching circuit, and a level of the first pin is a second level. The first level is greater than the second level.

  • Patent number: 10801017
    Abstract: The invention relates to methods of altering expression of a genomic locus of interest or specifically targeting a genomic locus of interest in an animal cell, which may involve contacting the genomic locus with a non-naturally occurring or engineered composition that includes a deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) binding polypeptide having a N-terminal capping region, a DNA binding domain comprising at least five or more Transcription activator-like effector (TALE) monomers and at least one or more half-monomers specifically ordered to target the genomic locus of interest, and a C-terminal capping region, wherein the polypeptide includes at least one or more effector domains, and wherein the polypeptide is encoded by and translated from a codon optimized nucleic acid molecule so that the polypeptide preferentially binds to the DNA of the genomic locus.
