We agree with the Examiner that claim 1 is not patent-eligible subject matter. Claim 1 is directed to a peptide that is made up of a fragment of the naturally occurring matriptase protein. Thus, the Supreme Court opinion in Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, Inc., 133 S.Ct. 2107 (2013), is controlling. In Myriad, the Court considered claims directed to isolated DNA encoding the BRCA1 polypeptide and fragments of at least 15 nucleotides of that DNA. Id. at 2113.

The Court held that “Myriad did not create anything. To be sure, it found an important and useful gene, but separating that gene from its surrounding genetic material is not an act of invention.” Id. at 2117. “Myriad found the location of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes, but that discovery, by itself, does not render the BRCA genes ‘new . . . composition[s] of matter,’ § 101, that are patent eligible.” Id. “Nor are Myriad’s claims saved by the fact that isolating DNA from the human genome severs chemical bonds and thereby creates a nonnaturally occurring molecule.” Id. at 2118.

Association for Molecular Pathology v. Myriad Genetics, Inc., 569 U.S. _, 133 S. Ct. 2107, 106 USPQ2d 1972 (2013) 2103 2106
