Nonfiction Usage Patent Usage3',5'ndash;cyclic Phosphate Compounds and Methods Thereof: Patented by Oreste Ghisalba, Guy J. Marais Christian and Pierre Martin on October 5, 1999. Abstract: The present invention provides 3',5'ndash;cyclic phosphate nucleotide compounds. The present invention is further directed to processes for cleaving the cyclic phosphate moiety of the 3',5'ndash;cyclic phosphate compounds of the present invention by treating the compounds with a biocatalyst. The present invention is also directed to biocatalysts having cyclic phosphodiesterase activity.Alcohol Dehydrogenases with High Solvent and Temperature Stability: Patented by Wolfgang Stampfer, Birgit Kosjek, Wolfgang Kroutil and Kurt Faber on March 10, 2003. Abstract: The invention relates to biocatalysts showing alcohol dehydrogenase activity obtainable from Rhodococcus ruber, their preparation, their use in the oxidation of secondary alcohols and/or the reduction of ketones, as well as nucleic acids coding for these alcohol dehydrogenases and microorganisms transformed with nucleic acids coding for these biocatalysts and their use for producing the blocatalyst or oxidizing secondary alcohols and/or reducing ketones.Antibiotic Compounds: Patented by Bruce Eaton, Ted Tarasow, Dan Nieuwlandt and Torin Dewey on December 18, 2002. Abstract: The present invention provides methods for identifying monobactams with anti-PBP2a activity. The method involves the selection of RNA biocatalysts that promote the formation of monobactams with anti-PBP2a activity from component reactants. The invention also provides novel monobactams with anti-PBP2a activity identified by these methods. The invention also provides RNA biocatalysts that are capable of catalyzing the formation of monobactams from component reactants.Biocatalysts with Amine Acylase Activity: Patented by Oreste Ghisalba, Matthias Kittelmann, Kurt Laumen and Paula Walser-Volken on April 14, 1997. Abstract: The invention belongs to the field of biotechnology. It concerns a biocatalyst, i.e. a dead or living microorganism or a polypeptide, preferably in isolated form, which exhibits acylase enzymatic activity without lipase- or esterase-activity. The biocatalyst is capable of stereoselectively hydrolysing a racemic acylamide which has an aliphatic acyl residue and which is not a derivative of a natural amino acid.Biocatalysts: Patented by John Macdonald Liddell and William Greer on November 2, 1997. Abstract: A method is presented for spray-drying whole microorganisms of Fusarium lateritium, Methylophilus methylotrophus, and Pseudomonas putida under conditions that the activity of cyanide hydratase, amidase and D-2-haloalkanoic acid halidohydrolase respectively are retained.Biochemical upgrading of oils: Patented by Eugene T. Premuzic and Mow S. Lin on November 8, 1996. Abstract: A process for biochemical conversion of heavy crude oils is provided. The process includes contacting heavy crude oils with adapted biocatalysts. The resulting upgraded oil shows, a relative increase in saturated hydrocarbons, emulsions and oxygenates and a decrease in compounds containing in organic sulfur, organic nitrogen and trace metals. Adapted microorganisms which have been modified under challenged growth processes are also disclosed.Centrifugal Fermentation Process: Patented by Heath H. Herman on December 31, 1998. Abstract: The present invention comprises novel culture methods and devices in which living cells or subcellular biocatalysts are immobilized by the opposition of forces. The immobilized cells or biocatalysts may be attached to support complexes that add to the resultant vector forces.Direct colorimetric detection of biocatalysts: Patented by Deborah Charych on March 2, 1998. Abstract: The present invention relates to methods and compositions for the direct detection of membrane conformational changes through the detection of color changes in biopolymeric materials. In particular, the present invention all
