Multi-Hierarchical Self-Assembly of Collagen Mimetic Peptides into AAB Type Heterotrimers, Nanofibers and Hydrogels Driven by Charged Pair Interactions
Replicating the multi-hierarchical self-assembly of collagen (peptide chain to triple helix to nanofiber and, finally, to a hydrogel) has long attracted scientists, both from the fundamental science perspective of ...
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 ...
Engineering Escherichia coli for the production of polyketide-based platform chemicals
The current chemical industry produces a diverse array of industrial chemicals from a handful of highly reduced byproducts (termed "platform chemicals") derived from oil refining. However, petroleum is a non-renewable ...
Novel approaches for the production of fuels and chemicals in Escherichia coli
Volatility of oil prices along with major concerns about climate change, oil supply security and depleting reserves have sparked renewed interest in the production of biofuels and biochemicals. While the carbohydrate portion ...
Developing Novel Protein-based Materials using Ultrabithorax: Production, Characterization, and Functionalization
Compared to 'conventional' materials made from metal, glass, or ceramics, protein-based materials have unique mechanical properties. Furthermore, the morphology, mechanical properties, and functionality of protein-based ...
