  • Patent number: 10150801
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides recombinant polypeptides, nucleic acids encoding the recombinant polypeptides and methods for using these polypeptides and/or nucleic acids in enhancing or inducing an immune response in a subject in need thereof. The present disclosure also provides methods of treating a cell proliferative disorder, such as cancer, by administering the disclosed polypeptides and/or nucleic acids to a subject in need thereof.

  • Patent number: 9085768
    Abstract: In this study, we used a wound-inducible promoter of the broccoli (Brassica oleracea var. italica) GLUCOSE INHIBITION of ROOT ELONGATION1 (GIR1) gene fused to ?-glucuronidase (GUS, pBoGIR1::GUS) as a selectable marker. Transgenic broccoli plants expressing pBoGIR1::GUS appear blue in planta at wounded regions after GUS staining for 30 min. Similarly, the blue color is visible in transgenic Arabidopsis and rice plants expressing pBoGIR1::GUS at wounded areas after GUS staining for 2 h, indicating that this promoter is wound-inducible in both dicots and monocots. GUS staining is very rapid and the partial wounding in this study is a nondestructive method that does not affect further plant growth and development. Thus, pBoGIR1::GUS could serve as an effective substitute for antibiotic- and herbicide-resistance genes in the generation of genetically modified crops.

  • Patent number: 8569202
    Abstract: The present invention provides catalysts, reactors, and methods of steam reforming over a catalyst. Surprisingly superior results and properties obtained in methods and catalysts of the present invention are also described. For example, a coated catalyst was demonstrated to be highly stable under steam reforming conditions (high temperature and high pressure of steam). Methods of making steam reforming catalysts are also described.

  • Patent number: 8109652
    Abstract: An improved LED assembly comprises a frame and a circuit substrate. The frame has a slot, which has an opening on the upper surface of the frame. An elongated inverted L-shaped structure is formed on either side of the opening, and one or more conductive strips are formed on the inner side of the elongated inverted L-shaped structure. Therefore, electricity may be supplied to the conductive strips of the frame. In assembly, the circuit substrate is slid into the slot of the frame so that each of the conductive strips of the circuit substrate is engaged with the corresponding conductive strip of the frame. Therefore, electricity from the electric source may be fed from the source through the conductive strip of the frame and the conductive strip of the circuit substrate and then to the light-emitting units so that each of the light-emitting units may be powered up.
