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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
Change in cell motility and metabolism following culture under low shear conditions
Recent studies suggest that the human immune system, and in particular lymphocyte function, may be suppressed during space flight. However, the mechanisms by which mechanical forces affect the function of immune cells are ...
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 ...
