  • Patent number: 10995343
    Abstract: The present invention provides a wheat plant comprising an Rht-B1 allele which encodes an Rht-B1 (DELLA) poly-peptide. Grain from a near-isogenic wheat line comprising the dwarfing Rht-B1c allele was subjected to sodium azide mutagenesis. Plants exhibiting early leaf elongation rates or mature plant height greater than the dwarf parent were selected and the Rht-B1 gene sequenced. This identified 35 mutated alleles of Rht-B1c. Similar methods were also used to identify mutant alleles of the dwarfing s1n1d allele in barley, where DELLA is encoded by the s1n1 gene.

  • Patent number: 9629888
    Abstract: This invention describes a novel composition of matter describing a complex comprising leaf protein and a lipophilic substance(s), along with the method of producing it. Delivery of lipid-soluble materials into the body is challenging because they are generally highly insoluble in water and very subject to oxidative degradation. The inventors have found that leaf protein—the water-soluble proteins derived from plant leaves—can efficiently form a complex with lipophilic materials. This leaf protein—lipid-soluble material complex is an effective carrier of lipophilic substances. As such, the leaf protein—lipid-soluble material complex disclosed herein can be used for the delivery of lipophilic vitamins, fatty acids, caretenoids, lipophilic drugs, and other lipophilic materials. This complex can be used to deliver lipophiles in foods, nutritional and dietary supplements, topical compositions and in pharmaceutical products.

  • Patent number: 8916161
    Abstract: The present invention provides a method of treating BPH using modified pore-forming proteins (MPPs). These MPPs are derived from naturally occurring cytotoxic proteins (nPPs) that kill cells by forming pores or channels in the cell membrane, resulting in cell death. The MPPs are generated by modification of the nPPs such that they are capable of being selectively activated at normal prostate cells. Such modification may include the addition of a prostate-specific protease cleavage site to the activation sequence, and/or the addition of a prostate-specific targeting domain to allow selective targeting of prostate cells. These MPPs are capable of selectively targeting and killing normal prostate cells in vivo. The MPPs may be used either alone or in combination with other therapies for the treatment of BPH.
