  • Patent number: 9150876
    Abstract: The invention relates to the isolation and characterization of a maize gene, RAMOSA3 (RA3), responsible for meristem development and inflorescence development including branching. The gene, gene product, and regulatory regions may be used to manipulate branching, meristem growth, inflorescence development and arrangement, and ultimately to improve yield of plants. The invention includes the gene and protein product as well as the use of the same for temporal and spatial expression in transgenic plants to alter plant morphology and affect yield in plants. The invention also includes the gene and protein product for SISTER OF RAMOSA3 (SRA).

  • Patent number: 9090659
    Abstract: The present invention provides for peptides that bind to Receptor for Hyaluronic Acid Mediated Motility (RHAMM) molecules. More specifically, provided are peptides capable of specifically binding RHAMM molecules and capable of binding RHAMM with substantially high affinity. These novel RHAMM-binding peptides provide the basis for new imaging probes that can be used to identify cells expressing RHAMM, and for methods of imaging, prognosis, diagnosis and treatment of conditions associated with RHAMM expression.
