Patent No: US 10,995,345B2.
Date of Patent: May 4, 2021.
Inventor: Raul Cuero Rengifo, Cypress, TX (US).

Described herein are biological devices and methods for using the same to produce oxidized zinc. The biological devices include microbial cells transformed with a DNA construct containing genes for producing a zinc-related protein, an alkaline phosphatase, and an alcohol dehydro­genase. In some instances, the biological devices also include a gene for lipase. The oxidized zinc compositions produced herein have numerous applications.
