Engineering the Production of Itaconic Acid in Escherichia coli
Itaconic acid (IA) has many versatile applications in science and medicine. Engineering Escherichia coli can provide a reliable route for IA production, where cis -aconitate decarboxylase (CAD) is one essential enzyme in ...
Improved Understanding of Apoptosis and Metabolism in Chinese Hamster Ovary Cell Culture
Mammalian cell culture has gained importance in biotechnology for the development of therapeutic and diagnostic agents. Among them, Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells are regarded as the mammalian cell "workhorse". The use ...
Towards Photocurrent Production By Gold Nanoarrays with Self-Assembled Monolayer Coatings
This thesis proposes to use optical rectennae (rectifying antennae) for generating electricity by harvesting solar energy. Rectennae have theoretical efficiency over 90%, well above that of current photovoltaic devices. ...
