  • Patent number: 10503919
    Abstract: An intended signatory receives an electronic signature request that includes instructions for accessing both an unsigned document and server functionality that enables the intended signatory to electronically sign the document. To gain such access, the intended signatory must pass username and password authentication, which serves as a first authentication factor. After the intended signatory is authenticated, he/she can access the unsigned document. However, once the intended signatory is initially authenticated, it can be assumed that his/her work session is subject to being misappropriated by an unauthorized user. Thus, when a command to apply an electronic signature to the document is invoked, the would-be signatory must pass keystroke biometrics authentication, which serves as a second authentication factor.

The first side of the chemically etched blade includes one or more concave portions and one or more convex portions with at least one inflection point between the concave portions and one or more convex portions. The second side of the chemically etched blade includes one or more concave portions and one or more convex portions with at least one inflection point between the concave portions and one or more convex portions.

  • Publication number: 20190133576
    Abstract: A wound closure system and a method of reducing the size of an open wound are disclosed. A suture line is sutured through body tissue adjacent an open wound, the suture line sutured so as to pass into the body tissue at an entry point and exit at an exit point, the suture line including a plurality of barbs extending outwardly at an acute angle with respect to a surface of the suture line. A biasing member applies a continuous pulling force on the suture line for stretching the body tissue toward the open wound, wherein the biasing member is configured to take up any slack of the suture line during stretching of the body tissue and keep the suture line taut.

  • Publication number: 20140123339
    Abstract: Compositions and methods for increasing carotenoid levels and carotenoid half-life in plants are provided. The methods involve transforming organisms with nucleic acid sequences encoding enzymes associated with carotenoid biosynthesis and tocopherol and tocotrienols. In particular, the nucleic acid sequences are useful for preparing plants and microorganisms that possess increased beta-carotene levels and half-life. Thus, transformed bacteria, plants, plant cells, plant tissues and seeds are provided. The sequences find use in the construction of expression vectors for subsequent transformation into organisms of interest including plants, particularly sorghum.

  • Patent number: 7705215
    Abstract: This invention relates to a reproducible system for the production of stable, genetically transformed maize cells, and to methods of selecting cells that have been transformed. One method of selection disclosed employs the Streptomyces bar gene introduced by microprojectile bombardment into embryogenic maize cells which were grown in suspension cultures, followed by exposure to the herbicide bialaphos. The methods of achieving stable transformation disclosed herein include tissue culture methods and media, methods for the bombardment of recipient cells with the desired transforming DNA, and methods of growing fertile plants from the transformed cells. This invention also relates to the transformed cells and seeds and to the fertile plants grown from the transformed cells and to their pollen.
