The reserachers used classical genetic breeding methods to take advantage of mutations that alter carotenoid production to achieve zeaxanthin levels that are as high as 35 ?g/g FW. The zeaxanthin tomatoes will not be considered “genetically modified” (GMO), thus the fruits and extracts should face no marketing limitations. Patent Position: Provisional Filed.

Javier Montiel Bonmatí posted this:Antibacterial alternative to antibiotics, with high specificity against Escherichia coliThe "Molecular Microbiology" research group at the University of Alicante has modified several phage proteins (Poll-N and UK-C) that have high specificity against Escherichia coli (E. coli), but not against other Gram-negative (G-) bacteria. For these reasons, their use as a specific antimicrobial against E. coli is potentially interesting, especially in the case of contaminated food, cosmetics or water. It would also be useful in the treatment of diseases (infections) caused by E. coli. The presence of a histidine tail attached to the phage proteins not only facilitates their purification but also improves lysis efficiency without the need of cell permeabilization treatments. Companies interested in the commercial exploitation of the technology through license agreements and/or technical cooperation are sought.

CSIC - Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas posted this:Antibodies to measure residual levels of mycotoxin ochratoxin A in foodCSIC and the University of Valencia have developed antibodies capable of determining ochratoxin A in food and ensure compliance with legislation on food products regarding the presence of this mycotoxin. Antibodies have been generated using novel functionalized derivatives of ochratoxin A. These immunoreagents have shown their efficacy in both direct and indirect competitive ELISA to detect concentrations close to parts per trillion. We are looking for companies interested in patent licensing for the development of fast, sensitive and portable kits for the analysis of ochratoxin A in foods and beverages based on these antibodies. The license of the patent is offered Effective, fast and accurate detection Ochratoxin A has a higher incidence in cereals, wine, juices and coffee One of the most harmful and frequent mycotoxins in food is ochratoxin A. Its presence is a real problem for human health due to its toxicity, and it causes significant economic losses to various productive sectors. The main fungi producing ochratoxin A belongs to the genera Penicillium and Aspergillus, and the products with the highest incidence are cereals, wine, juices and coffee. The small concentrations at which this potent toxin is usually found commonly require the use of sophisticated chromatographic methods. An alternative is the generation of antibodies against ochratoxin A with superior performance to the existing ones that allow this toxin being recognized with high affinity and specificity. These immunoreagents can be easily implemented in various analytical platforms, from the simplest, such as competitive ELISAs and immunochromatographic strips, to more complex, like chips or biosensors of different types, which allows us to simultaneously analyze a large number of samples in low-resource settings such as warehouses, cellars and even farmlands. Main applications and advantages Ochratoxin A derivatives functionalized at new positions have been synthesized that faithfully preserve the structure and characteristics of this potent mycotoxin. These new compounds have proven to be extremely efficient as haptens to generate antibodies capable of recognizing ochratoxin A with an affinity and selectivity not previously described. Immunoassays developed using these immunoreagents have been shown to be very sensitive, allowing analysis of ochratoxin A at levels close to 10 parts per trillion. These new methods are faster than instrumental procedures, especially when analyzing complex samples such as wine and coffee. The generated immunoreagents are easily adaptable to portable methods, such as ELISA kits or immunochromatographic strips.

Thus, this new approach may benefit not only stroke patients who can be treated with current treatment to induce recanalization (transient stroke) but also the 80% of patients who could not benefit from current therapies directed to induce recanalization of the artery (permanent strokes). Results in the preclinical area and some results obtained in serum of stroke patients lead us to think that apotransferrin is a good neuroprotector in the early stages of the ischemic event.
Korea Institute of Energy Research posted this:Apparatus for producing silicon nanocrystals based on inductively coupled plasma.Researchers at the Korea Institute of Energy Research have developed a new apparatus for producing silicon nanocrystals based on inductively coupled plasma. Silicon nanocrystals have been widely investigated for several years because of their many interesting properties and potential use in several applications. Recently, silicon nanocrystals have been used in solar cells and light emitting device (LEDs). Silicon is an environmentally friendly material and is utilised for various applications in the field of electronic materials. The field of silicon nanocrystal production has grown enormously of late, in response to the observation of quantum confinement in porous silicon. Silicon is already widely used in the semiconductor industry, in large part because of its nontoxic properties and abundance, being the second most abundant element in the earth’s crust. Due to the high capacity of silicon paired with its relatively environmentally friendly properties it is an ideal material for use as a replacement to more commonly used environmentally costly materials. The common process of producing silicon nanocrystals can be classified into three distinct areas: solid-state reaction, liquid state reaction, and vapour state reaction. The solid-state reaction is the process whereby a thin film of SiO2, Si3N4 or the like containing excess Silicon (Si) is formed and subjected to heat treatment to enable the condensation of silicon and subsequent formation of silicon nanocrystals in a SiO2, Si3N4 or SiC matrix. In the liquid state reaction, silicon nanocrystals are prepared via a chemical reaction of silicon compounds, this is done through the application of variant methods, for example the high-temperature supercritical method. In the vapour state reaction, silicon nanocrystals are prepared by passing a silane compound gas through a high energy region such as laser or plasma. In the case of all three traditional silicon nanocrystals reaction methods (solid, liquid and gas) the process incurs significant cost due to the substantial need for heat energy and expensive deposition equipment. What’s more, in the liquid State reaction issues arise due to the severe difficulty in controlling particle size, which in turn leads to poor crystallinity quality. The vapour state reaction incurs further issues due to the extreme use of energy resulting in aggregated nanocrystals and the formation of secondary particles. To overcome the inherent issues of solid, liquid and vapour silicon nanocrystal reactions non-thermal plasma, such as inductively coupled plasma (IPC) has begun to be used. However, the conventional ICP-based apparatus has limitations and can result in issues pertaining to the management of the particle size of silicon nanocrystals, as well as extending reaction time and deteriorating silicon nanocrystal quality. To combat the aforementioned limitations in silicon nanocrystal production a new apparatus method has been designed, which can minimise plasma diffusion inside the reactor during production using ICP to improve the particle size characteristics and quality of the silicon nanocrystals.
Sandra Moczulska posted this:Application and method of producing cyclic compounds in olefin metathesis reactionThe olefin metathesis reaction has many advantages, the most important of which is the fact that it shortens the synthesis path by reducing the number of required steps and this lowers the cost of obtaining the target product. Unfortunately, the industrial application of the olefin metathesis reaction (especially in the production of macrocyclic rings in the RCM reaction) is currently experiencing difficulties such as: - lack of selectivity and product competition (a major problem with RCMs leading to large macrocyclic rings to minimize the problem of high dilution, but it clearly increases the cost of the process) - displacement of reaction equilibrium (RCM reaction is an equilibrium process, so to move the process towards the formation of products it is necessary to react under reduced pressure) - migration of double bond C = C (migration within the substrates as well as target product due to side reactions. This inconvenience can be eliminated by using, for example, quinones - unfortunately, this elimination is only partial.) - the need to use a homogeneous ruthenium catalyst (a large amount of catalyst is required to reach the reaction, reaching over 20 mol%). The present invention relates to a process for the production of cyclic compounds in the olefin metathesis reaction and the use of ruthenium catalysts for the production of cyclic olefins in olefin metathesis reactions. The solution through optimization, overcomes the current problems. The expected product is obtained with high efficiency and selectivity. The method can find extensive use in organic synthesis, requiring metathetic ring closure (RCM), among others in the fragrance industry. Advantages of the presented solution from UW: 1. high process efficiency 2. high selectivity 3. low cost of synthesis

These hybrid materials combine two very different chemical families —metals and any organic molecules — which have a synergetic effect in various applications, including biological and medical ones. The general approach for the preparation of the metallic composites involves a room-temperature, one-pot, reduction of the metal cation (its positively charged ions) in the presence of the desired organic molecule while using carefully selected reducing agents. Using this approach, the team has developed novel antimicrobial-doped copper in which antimicrobial peptides or small antibacterial molecules are entrapped. It has demonstrated the new materials’ high efficacy both in vitro and as a novel crop protection agent in plants. Prof. Avnir and Dr. Hayouka will expand their current study to develop efficient copper-based antiviral agents. They will explore the entrapment of various active agents, which have been suggested as capable of tackling HCoV-19. The designed compounds will be tested on HCoV-19. The researchers are negotiating to conduct the tests in China. They are also exploring the potential of converting the compounds into a product with an Israeli start-up specializing in nanometric copper. Project ID : 47-2020-10885

IMDEA Water Institute posted this:Aquatic ecotoxicology and ecological risk assessmentEcotoxicology is a multidisciplinary science which aims to assess how interaction between pollutants and the environment affects ecosystems, taking into account the susceptibility of individuals, populations and communities to be affected by and recover from any type of toxic stress. Assessing ecological risk from pollutants requires preliminary research into the emission and transport of contaminating substances in the environment and the exposure to which live organisms may be subjected. Likewise, laboratory and/or field experiments help evaluate the toxic effects caused by different pollutants and exposure patterns. Finally, the results of these studies are combined to calculate the likelihood of ecosystems being affected by the use of potentially toxic substances.
