In re Deuel, (299) was an appeal of a decision by the Board of Patent Appeals and Interferences to reject claims directed to specific nucleic acid sequences and to nucleic acid sequences generally encoding specific human and bovine heparin-binding growth factors (HBGFs) (300) as obvious under 35 U.S.C.
As is conceded by Deuel, they generically encompass all DNA sequences encoding human and bovine HBGFs. Written in such a result-oriented form, claims 4 and 6 are thus tantamount to the general idea of all genes encoding the protein, all solutions to the problem.
Claims 4 and 6 generically encompass all isolated/ purified DNA sequence (natural and synthetic) encoding human and bovine HBGFs, despite the fact that Deuel's application does not describe the chemical structure of, or tell how to obtain, any DNA or cDNA except the two disclosed cDNA molecules ...
