Biochemical and genetic engineering strategies to enhance recombinant protein production in Escherichia coli
Escherichia coli has been widely used to produce high-value recombinant proteins for years. Although high recombinant protein productivity can be attained, perhaps the most important goal for such processes, that of achieving ...
Spin lattice relaxation in pure and mixed alkanes and their correlation with thermodynamic and macroscopic transport properties
Spin-lattice, T$\sb1$, and spin-spin, T$\sb2$, relaxation times of the alkanes from n-pentane to n-hexadecane were measured at 25$\sp\circ$C. The T$\sb1$ values agree well with those of previous investigators. The values ...
Thermophysical property measurements at high temperatures for liquid metal alloys and gadolinium oxide-doped uranium dioxide samples
New techniques for obtaining various thermophysical properties, i.e., densities and incremental enthalpies of selected materials at high temperatures have been developed with emphasis on the utilization of levitation ...
Laminar fluid flow, particle transport and permeate flux behavior in crossflow membrane filters
Similarity solutions for axial and lateral velocity profiles, pressure gradients and wall skin friction are derived for the laminar, isothermal single phase flow of incompressible fluids in channels having porous boundaries. ...
Analysis of metabolic flux of secondary metabolite pathways in Catharanthus roseus hairy root cultures
Catharanthus roseus, a tropical plant, produces the valuable anti-cancer compounds, vincristine and vinblastine in extremely low amounts. My research objectives were to examine the response of plant secondary metabolism ...
In vivo phosphorus-31 and carbon-13 nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy to study cellular metabolism
Nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy has emerged as a valuable tool for engineers for noninvasive, real-time studies of cellular metabolism. Two applications of NMR for studying cellular metabolism were investigated in ...
