Date:3/5/2013

to develop and commercialize optogenetics to restore visual responses."

The newly allowed U.S. patent application covers methods of increasing visually evoked potentials by delivering to retinal neurons one or more of the following molecules:

  • Channelrhodopsin-2 (and a multitude of variants thereof)
  • Halorhodopsin

Claims also explicitly cover targeting these molecules with cell-type specific promoters, including mGluR6 (Grm6).

Following a Notice of Allowance, the process resulting in final issuance of a patent involves several administrative steps that are typically completed within a year.
