A prima facie case of obviousness also may be shown by identifying "adequate support in the prior art" for changing the structure of the prior art compound. Procter & Gamble Co. v. Teva Pharms. USA, Inc., 566 F.3d 989, 995 (Fed. Cir. 2009) (citing In re Grabiak, 769 F.2d 729, 731-32 (Fed. Cir. 1985)).

As to the functional equivalents rationale, that the prior art may disclose structure that performs the same or a similar function as the recited structure does not necessarily demonstrate that the prior art satisfies a structural limitation, such as the "stub tube" limitations. See In re Ruskin, 347 F.2d 843, 847 (CCPA 1965) (reversing an anticipation rejection based on an error "in finding merely functionally equivalent structure to anticipate the specific structure claimed")
