Using a novel approach, a core hexapeptide fragment derived from beta amyloid has been shown to be protective at the synaptic, cellular and behavioral levels against beta amyloid toxicity and is being used in this invention as a platform for deriving stabilized versions and peptidomimetics for prevention and treatment of Alzheimer's disease. The hexapeptide core beta amyloid fragment is ...Thu, 05 Oct 2017 19:01:38 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu Magnesium Boride Materials for Hydrogen Storage storage is one of the great challenges limiting the commercialization of polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cell technology for automobile and unmanned vehicles. Full commercialization is dependent upon the development of compact and cost competitive hydrogen storage technologies with longer drive range and capability of meeting practical performance targets. Researchers at the University of Hawaii have developed novel magnesium boride based materials that undergo rapid, reversible hydrogenation at significantly lower temperatures and pressures than current state-of-the-art pure ...Thu, 05 Oct 2017 17:39:48 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu and Method for Harvesting Ambient Energy by Circuit Reconfiguration, 25 Sep 2017 14:03:07 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu Actuator for Medical Device Locating and Positioning, 25 Sep 2017 13:27:21 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu Expressing the Miraculin Protein, a Sweetener, 26 Jul 2017 10:56:56 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu Inhibitors of GSK3-beta, 31 Jan 2017 13:05:50 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu'Alawa: A Unique Mechanistic Model for Battery Diagnosis and Prognosis, 06 Dec 2016 12:28:10 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu Evolved Crop Protection and Insect Control, 18 Nov 2016 16:57:59 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu<![CDATA[Apparatus & Method for Estimating the State of Health of a Battery via updating the OCV and SOC relationship]]>, 03 Mar 2016 18:34:02 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu for Reducing or Preventing Immunogenic Response, 16 Jun 2015 15:44:23 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu antibody for mesothelioma the US, asbestos causes approximately 2,000 - 3,000 malignant mesothelioma deaths per year, and it contributes to an even larger number of lung carcinomas. The latency from time of exposure to tumor development potentially allows time for intervention to block the mechanism(s) that trigger asbestos-induced carcinogenesis. This invention proposes administering to a patient having mesothelioma an antibody specific for HMGB1 to neutralize activity against HMGB1 and inhibit mesothelioma cell growth. It also propose use of an anti-HMGB1 antibody to prevent, delay or reduce the incidence of malig...Fri, 29 May 2015 17:46:47 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu Mesothelioma Biomarker mesothelioma, which is associated with asbestos or erionite exposure, is an aggressive and lethal cancer of the mesothelium, the protective lining that covers many internal organs and is most commonly found in the lungs. The inventors have discovered that misregulation of a protein called High Mobility Group Box 1 (HMGB1) is linked to mesothelioma in individuals exposed to asbestos. HMGB1 is a member of the high-mobility group protein super-family that plays important roles in biological processes like transcription, DNA repair, proliferation and inflammation. After asbestos and erio...Fri, 29 May 2015 15:43:43 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu antibody cell lines for the insecticide "Thiamethoxam" two monoclonal antibody cell lines secrete different thiamethoxam antibodies. Thiamethoxam is a new class of neo-nicotinoid insecticides that are used to treat sucking and chewing insects such as aphid, whiteflies, leadhoppers and some beetles. This class of insecticides is one of the most widely used to protect crops and environmental contamination is a possibility. To protect the consumer, a sensitive specific screening assay was needed. The antibodies can determine thiamethoxam at concentrations below 100 ppb. Immunassay companies such as EnviroLogix will use this antibody to develop an...Thu, 28 May 2015 17:00:37 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu method for transforming algae, 28 May 2015 14:26:52 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu Natural product Stat3 Inhibitors, 27 May 2015 17:07:04 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu of lincRNAs as Robust Pan-Cancer Diagnostic and Prognostic Biomarkers, 26 May 2015 13:22:38 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu product inhibitors of Stat3 and NF-kappaB, 26 May 2015 12:21:58 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu Sequence of Shrimp Actin Promoter and Its Use in Genetic Transformation Biotechnology use of molecular biology techniques to produce pathogen resistant strains of shrimp through genetic transformation technology is considered a highly promising strategy for control of shrimp viral diseases. A major challenge to current development of such technology is the lack of a suitable host-derived promoter to drive the effective expression of desirable genes in shrimp. To meet this urgent need for the development of transgenic shrimp, we have recently employed molecular cloning and sequencing techniques and isolated and identified a putative promoter gene from litopenaeus shrimp (L. ...Thu, 21 May 2015 12:55:22 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu for localization of atypical sequences in big data, 10 Apr 2013 19:38:39 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu chaos computing with adjustable noise immunity level, 10 Apr 2013 18:40:16 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu novel Stat3 inhibitor that suppresses growth, viability, survival and migration of human breast and glioma cells in vitro have discovered a new chemical compound that blocks the cancer causing biological molecule called Stat3, and by doing so controls growth and existence of human cancer cells. The compound strongly inhibits the activated form of Stat3, and consequently attenuates Stat3 functions in cancer cells. Accordingly, treatment of human breast cancer and glioma cells in culture leads to inhibition of cell growth and survival, and the ability of the tumor cells to migrate. Altogether, the studies provide data to support the compound as a potential new drug to treat human cancers that show evide...Wed, 10 Apr 2013 16:31:48 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu combined instrument for Raman and LIBS (Laser-induced breakdown) spectrometry, utilizing a single laser source and single spectrograph, 25 Jan 2011 12:19:15 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu Digital Surfaced Grid of High Resolution Bathymetry (Including SeaBeam multibeam) and Topography around the Island of Hawaii, 15 Mar 2010 19:04:12 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu HydroxiRem - The Most Cost-Effective Advanced Oxidative Process for Wastewater Purification, 12 Mar 2010 16:45:17 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu Engineered Banana with Resistance to Banana Bunchy Top Virus, 07 Jan 2010 17:43:53 GMTdjleong@hawaii.edu
