U.S. Patent No. 8,795,959 titled “Isolated glucokinase genomic polynucleotide fragments from chromosome 7” was issued August 5, 2014. This patent continues the theme of a previously issued Ryogen patent, U.S. Patent No. 8,313,899. The new patent claims a method of detection of specified sequences from polynucleotide sequence which encodes a protein that has human glucokinase activity. Glucokinase plays an important role in the regulation of carbohydrate metabolism.
