High temperature selection of nucleotide-supported carbohydrate vaccines and resulting glycosylated oligonucleotides

The invention relates to an oligonucleotide including one or more modified nucleoside bases having the structure -b-l-a wherein for each of the modified nucleosides a is independently a monosaccharide or oligosaccharide, l is a linker molecule, and b is independently a pyrimidine or pyridine base linked to the sugar-phosphate backbone of the oligonucleotide; and wherein the oligonucleotide binds specifically to a carbohydrate-binding monoclonal antibody with an affinity of less than 100 nm. Immunogenic conjugates that include the oligonucleotide, and pharmaceutical compositions that include the oligonucleotide or the immunogenic conjugate are also disclosed.

Method for preparation of a dual phase filler for elastomers

A method for preparation of a dual phase filler for elastomers for manufacturing technical rubber items, including such for microwave protection. The method involves the following stages: first stage—1/10 of the silicasol impregnating solution obtained by its dilution in distilled water at a 1:10 ratio is pulverized over the carbon black at constant stirring; second stage—the carbon black pulverized with the silicasol impregnating solution is let stay in air at room temperature for 24 hours; third stage: a two-step thermal activation in a drying cabinet is carried out—at first at 80° c.

Graphitization furnace, system, and graphitization method

A graphitization furnace has a furnace structure including a support part within a furnace chamber, and a gate valve. The gate valve in an open state thereof after a graphitization process dumps a pack material within the furnace chamber in a state in which carbon bodies are located within the furnace chamber, and the support part catches the carbon bodies as a level of the carbon bodies lowers with a decrease in an amount of the pack material remaining within the furnace chamber..

Systems and methods for reliable relative navigation and autonomous following between unmanned aerial vehicle and a target object

A method for navigating an airborne device relative to a target comprises detecting, at an optical detector on the airborne device, an optical signal generated by one or more leds on the target. The method also comprises comparing, by a processor on the airborne device, the detected optical signal with a previously-detected optical signal.
