Title: Method of Determining Gene Relating to Favorable Beef Taste and Texture

Applicant/Assignee: THE NEW INDUSTRY RESEARCH ORGANIZATION

Application No.: 11/815559   Filing Date: 03/Feb/2006

Abstract:By focusing attention on SREBP-1 gene, the relationship between this gene and the degree of unsaturation in beef body fat is examined. As a result, it is found out that this gene occurs as an "L-type" gene having a longer fifth intron and an "S-type" gene having a fifth intron shorter by 84 bases than the above one and these genotypes relate to the degree of unsaturation in beef body fat. A method of evaluating the content of unsaturated fatty acids in beef body fat based on these SREBP-1 genotypes is applicable to the evaluation of beef taste, texture and so on and, therefore, is industrially useful.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/734425   Filing Date: 12/Apr/2007

Abstract:Hair care products represent a world-wide multi-billion dollar industry. Pre-formed polymers are commonly used in a variety of hair care products including shampoos, conditioners, gels, and hair sprays. The present invention provides technology for polymerizing monomers on hair in situ to produce desired hair characteristics. This eliminates the solubility and application issues found with some polymers. The polymerization of monomers on hair is typically initiated using a thermal or photoinitiatied free radical initiator. In certain embodiments, the monomers are fluorinated thereby producing a fluorinated polymer on the hair upon polymerization. The invention provides monomers, initiators, methods, and kits for use in treating hair with polymers.

Title: Compositions and methods for the inhibition of dishevelled proteins

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/097518   Filing Date: 01/Apr/2005

Abstract:The Wnt signaling pathways are involved in embryo development as well as in tumorigenesis. Dishevelled (Dvl) tranduces Wnt signals from the receptor Frizzled (Fz) to downstream components in canonical and non-canonical Wnt signaling pathways, and the Dvl PDZ domain plays an essential role in both pathways, and the Dvl PDZ domain binds directly to Fz receptors. In the present invention using NMR-assisted virtual ligand screening, several compounds were identified and were found to bind to the Dvl PDZ domain. Molecular dynamics simulation was used to analyze the binding between the PDZ domain and these compounds in detail. These compounds provide a basis for rational design of high-affinity inhibitors of the PDZ domain, which can block Wnt signaling by interrupting the Fz-Dvl interaction.

Title: Hair-grasping EEG electrode, applicator, and method for application

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/977182   Filing Date: 23/Oct/2007

Abstract:Disclosed herein is a hair-grasping EEG electrode and an insertion tool for placement of the electrode on the scalp. The electrode has a novel two-piece clamping design formed of cooperating halves that capture and tension the hair, pulling the electrode snuggly against the scalp before locking together to anchor the electrode in place. The insertion tool allows easy manipulation and fast and consistent installation without need for lengthy user training and practice. Moreover, the insertion tool assumes some of the functionality so that the electrode can be simplified, allowing a smaller footprint and part count, as well as allowing the non-conductive portions of the electrode to be disposable. Dispensing of electrolytic gel is a convenient option to improve the interface, and this may be readily dispensed from the tool, or from reservoirs integral to the electrode. The combination greatly reduces EEG study setup time and technician labor costs.

Abstract:The present invention provides a fluid exchange cell culture technique and tissue repair cells (TRCs) made by these methods, as well as methods using these cells. The method includes a new wash step which increases the tissue repair properties of the TRCs of the invention. This wash step allows for the production of TRC populations with greater tissue repair and anti-inflammatory capabilities. Embodiments of the present invention include a post-culture process for cultured cells that preferably includes the steps of: a wash process for removing unwanted residual culture components, a volume reduction process, and a harvesting process to remove cultured cells. Preferably, all these steps are performed within a aseptically closed cell culture chamber by implementing a separation method that minimizes mechanical disruption of the cells and is simple to automate. The harvested cells may then be concentrated to a final volume for the intended use. In such embodiments, the final composition is a substantially purified and concentrated cell mixture suspended in a physiologic solution suitable for immediate use in humans without further washing, volume reduction, or processing. Embodiments are also applicable to harvesting (and/or washing) particles within a liquid or solution within a chamber.

Applicant/Assignee:

Application No.: 11/804441   Filing Date: 18/May/2007

Abstract:The method disclosed includes the combining of iontophoresis and ultrasound to deliver the appropriate chromophores to blonde, grey, white, vellus, and other non-pigmented or laser resistant hair follicles to facilitate photothermolysis hair removal using a laser, Intense Pulsed Light (IPL), a combination of laser and RF energy, or combination of IPL and RF. This technique preferentially ultra-exposes the hair follicles to light energy which is absorbed preferentially by naturally and synthetic elements in and around the hair follicle. The result is focused photothermolysis damage resulting in death of the hair producing tissue. The combined use of iontophoresis and ultrasound, the appropriate chromophore and laser light allows for immediate and permanent removal of unwanted hair in selected locations on the body of mammals. This combination is so effective that the patient can be treated with a single or at least minimal office visitations thereby eliminating the need to continuously prepare and re-prepare the skin with melanin or other chromophores prior to multiple-in office-laser or IPL treatments for completing desired hair removal results. Additionally, this method discloses the use of iontophoresis together with High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) and also Radio Frequency (RF) energy combined with High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to specifically target necrotizing energy doses into the regenerative zones of the hair and accomplish hair removal.
