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 ...
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 ...
Paramagnetic particle assemblies as colloidal models for atomic and molecular systems
Colloidal particles are ideal models for studying the behavior of atomic and molecular systems. They resemble their atomic and molecular analogues in that their dynamics are driven by thermal energy and their equilibrium ...
Live Cell Compartment Tracking: Object Tracking in Oscillating Intensity Images
Mathematical modeling has made great strides since the Lotka-Volterra predator-prey models. Newer models attempt to describe sub-cellular signal transduction pathways, such as the JAK-STAT and NF-κB pathways. However, the ...
