A mass-spectrometry-based method and substrates are provided herein for large scale kinome activity profiling directly from crude lysates using 90 chemically synthesized peptide substrates with amino acid sequences derived from known phosphoproteins. Quantification of peptide phosphorylation rates was achieved via the use of stable isotope labeled synthetic peptides. A method and substrates for obtaining 90 simultaneous activity measurements in a single-reaction format were developed and validated. The kinome activity profiling strategy was successfully applied with lysates of: cells manipulated by combination of mitogen stimulation, pharmacological perturbation and siRNA-directed kinase knockdown; seven different breast cancer cell lines treated with gefitinib; and each of normal and cancerous tissue samples from renal cell carcinoma patients. This method concurrently measures multiple peptide phosphorylation rates to provide a diagnostic fingerprint pattern for activated kinases, protein phosphatases, modulators of these enzymes, and pathways (kinome) from as little starting material as a few cells.

Light-emitting devices providing asymmetrical propagation of light
Patent number: 10408428
Assignee: Quarkstar LLC (Las Vegas, NV)
Inventors: Roland H. Haitz (Portola Valley, CA), George E. Smith (Sunnyvale, CA), Robert C. Gardner (Atherton, CA), Louis Lerman (Las Vegas, NV)
A variety of light-emitting devices for general illumination utilizing solid state light sources (e.g., light emitting diodes) are disclosed. In general, the devices include a scattering element in combination with an extractor element. The scattering element, which may include elastic and/or inelastic scattering centers, is spaced apart from the light source element. Opposite sides of the scattering element have asymmetric optical interfaces, there being a larger refractive index mismatch at the interface facing the light emitting element than the interface between the scattering element and the extractor element. Such a structure favors forward scattering of light from the scattering element. In other words, the system favors scattering out of the scattering element into the extractor element over backscattering light towards the light source element. The extractor element, in turn, is sized and shaped to reduce reflection of light exiting the light-emitting device at the devices interface with the ambient environment.

Indexing mechanism for efficient node-aware full-text search over XML
Patent number: 8219563
Assignee: Oracle International Corporation (Redwood Shores, CA)
Inventors: Thomas Baby (Maple Valley, WA), Zhen Hua Liu (San Mateo, CA), Wesley Lin (West Covina, CA)
Techniques are provided for searching within a collection of XML documents. A relational table in an XML index stores an entry for each node of a set of nodes in the collection. Each entry of the relational table stores an order key and a path identifier along with the atomized value of the node. An index on the atomized value provides a mechanism to perform a node-aware full-text search. Instead of storing the atomized value in the table, a virtual column may be created to represent, for each node, the atomized value of the node. Alternately, each entry of the relational table stores an order key and a path identifier along with, for simple nodes, the atomized value, and for complex nodes, a null value. For a complex node with a descendant text node, a separate entry is stored for the descendant text node in the relational table.

The second agency can perform comparisons and other operations on the sensitive data without having to know the actual content of the data. The search pack allows an investigative agency to define an investigative strategy for a particular case via the search markup language programs and by the data features that it includes in the search pack. Thus, by sharing search packs among agencies, an agency can share or inform others of that agency's theory of the case and investigative goal. Search packs can also be updated automatically as new information is learned about a particular case. A search pack is updated is determined by the agency that created it and manages it.
