Patents by Inventor Zorica DRAGIC

Zorica DRAGIC has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 11230718
    Abstract: The present invention is based on the finding that the combination of a specific 5?UTR polynucleotide sequence (see SEQ ID NO 1) and the hCD33 secretory leader sequence in an expression cassette for expressing a polypeptide of interest results in a surprisingly better expression level of the polypeptide of interest compared to prior art expression cassettes. Based on this finding, the present invention inter alia provides novel expression cassettes, expression vectors and methods for producing a polypeptide of interest with high yield.

  • Publication number: 20170356006
    Abstract: The present invention is based on the finding that the combination of a specific 5?UTR polynucleotide sequence (see SEQ ID NO 1) and the hCD33 secretory leader sequence in an expression cassette for expressing a polypeptide of interest results in a surprisingly better expression level of the polypeptide of interest compared to prior art expression cassettes. Based on this finding, the present invention inter alia provides novel expression cassettes, expression vectors and methods for producing a polypeptide of interest with high yield.
