FIG. 1 illustrates a proposed bioengineered pelt/wool in accordance with an exemplary embodiment of the present invention


OUR PATENT APPLICATION

“Our invention relates to the - CRUELTY FREE- bioengineering of animal pelts / wool and anti-counterfeit of prime bioengineered pelts / wool and to bioengineered pelts / wool with inseparable molecular signatures for authenticity, timestamping and provenance. 

The invention also relates to a bioengineering process to derive -CRUELTY FREE- animal pelt and wool from the in vitro disposition and differentiation of interfollicular epidermis cells, fur follicle cells, fibroblast-like cells and extracellular matrix into a bioengineered pelt tissue. 

The invention also relates to the process of cell specific enrichment, genetic engineering, differentiation and disposition of said cells in the manufactured tissue. 

The invention further relates to pre-coding and use of a combination of genetic signature combinations as an anti-counterfeit mechanism and as proof of authenticity, timestamp and provenance. 

THIS HAS FURTHER IMPORTANCE FOR COUNTERFEIT PREVENTION AND WILDLIFE PRESERVATION IN GENERAL- WE REFER TO SPECIFIC SECTIONS OF OUR WEBPAGE (DNA-CELLBASED AND ANTI COUNTERFEIT POPERTIES).


THE SPECIES ARE DESCRIBED BELOW

A cell when used herein may preferably be a vertebrata cell. 

A vertebrata (explanation:every species with a spine) cell may preferably be a cell from an antelope, antilopini, beaver, buffalo, caiman, caracal, cat, cheetah, chinchilla, cow, crocodille, deer, eland, elephant, ermine, fisher, fox, genet, giraffe, goat, golden jackal, hedgehog, horse, leopard, lynx, lion, marten, mink, monkey, ape, nutria, otter, rabbit, rhinoceros, sable, serval, sheep, shrew, snake, stoat, swine, wolf, Australian brushtail possum, mouse or rat. 

A preferred vertebrata cell is a stem cell or induced pluripotent stem cell or adult stem cell or differentiated cell. 

The vertebrata cells may be obtained from a healthy individual. The vertebrata cell may be from a cell line, e.g. a deposited cell line or a commonly available cell line.”


FIG. 2 illustrates a anti-counterfeit genetic signature combination intrinsically integrated in the bioengineered pelt, and derived product, and product batch, and product types, and timestamp. The genetic signature or synthetic DNA is inseparably connected to the bioengineered pelt and its derived products
