The co-inventors are Woo-chul Moon, Seoul, South Korea, Chul-so Moon, Houston, Young-ho Moon, Kwangmyung, South Korea, Byung-gu Kim, Seoul, South Korea, Dong-hwan Kim, Kwangmyung, South Korea, Chan-jae Shin, Seoul, South Korea, Tae-han Um, Seoul, South Korea, Hwa-su Kim, Seoul, South Korea, Mi-kyung Song, Seoul, South Korea, Hyeung-jae Kim, Kyungsangnamdo, South Korea, and Seok-beom Song, Daejeon, South Korea.


The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The present invention relates to mutation genes of the AQP (aquaporin), a method for detecting cancer using mutations and expressions of the AQP and a DNA chip possessing oligonucleotides of mutated AQP base sequence. In case of the present method for detecting cancer and DNA chip using the AQP's mutations and expressions, it is highly accurate, rapid and effective in cancer diagnosis." The patent application was filed on June 4, 2007 (11/757,689).

*** Life Technologies Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 11 -- Life Technologies, Carlsbad, Calif., has been assigned a patent (8,012,715) developed by four co-inventors for "methods for production of proteins." The co-inventors are Deb K. Chatterjee, North Potomac, Md., Mary Longo, Germantown, Md., Elizabeth Flynn, Columbia, Md., and Robert Oberfelder, Woodland, Texas.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "The current invention provides methods for producing a polypeptide as inclusion bodies in bacterial host cells. The present methods are carried out by forming a gene construct comprising the genetic sequence encoding a polypeptide operatively linked to that of an inclusion partner protein, such as E. coli thioredoxin or a modified E. coli thioredoxin, such that host cells comprising the gene construct produce the polypeptide as intracellular inclusion bodies. The methods of the present invention facilitate the rapid isolation and purification of recombinant proteins. In addition, the present methods may be useful for producing polypeptides or proteins which are small and are typically difficult to express, as well as those proteins that are toxic to host cells such as E. coli. The present invention also provides plasmids, vectors and host cells to be used in the present invention for production of polypeptides, and methods of production of polypeptides using these vectors and host cells. The invention further provides methods for producing protein molecular weight ladders for use in protein gel electrophoresis, as well as proteins and protein molecular weight ladders produced by these methods." The patent application was filed on Dec. 29, 2006 (11/618,723).

*** Halliburton Energy Services Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Sept. 11 -- Halliburton Energy Services, Duncan, Okla., has been assigned a patent (8,012,582) developed by six co-inventors for a "sintered proppant made with a raw material containing alkaline earth equivalent." The co-inventors are Hongyu Luo, Duncan, Okla., Ashok Santra, Duncan, Okla., Lewis R. Norman, Duncan, Okla., Mark Parker, Lindale, Texas, Ronald J. Powell, Duncan, Okla., and Rajesh K. Saini, Duncan, Okla.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method of making a proppant is provided, wherein the method includes the steps of: (a) forming a particulate comprising: (i) a binder; and (ii) a filler; and (b) sintering the particulate to form a sintered proppant, wherein the sintered proppant comprises: (i) at least 20 wt % of alkaline earth oxide equivalent; and (ii) at least 20 wt % of silicon dioxide equivalent. A method of treating (e.g., fracturing) a subterranean formation is provided, the method including the steps of: (a) suspending the sintered proppant in a treatment fluid; and (b) introducing the sintered proppant into the subterranean formation. The sintered proppant is made with a raw material selected from the group consisting of: unhydrated cement, hydrated cement (e.g., construction cement or concrete waste), kiln dust, fly ash, limestone, lime, talc, olivine, dolomite, clay that contains a substantial concentration of alkaline earth oxide equivalent, and any combination thereof in any proportion." The patent application was filed on Sept. 25, 2008 (12/284,814).
