Plants Expressing the Miraculin Protein, a Sweetener
Researchers at UH-Hilo have developed a method for expressing miraculin, a flavor-altering protein, in lettuce. The protein is found naturally in berries of the miracle berry plant, Synsepalum dulcificum, and binds to sweet receptors on the tongue, temporarily producing a sweet taste for sour foods. The genetically engineered lettuce accumulates f...

anti-HMGB1 antibody for mesothelioma
In 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...
