Metabolic engineering of acetate-production pathways for the production of isoamyl acetate and succinate in Escherichia coli
Products derived from the central aerobic metabolic pathway in Escherichia coli often compete with the acetate-producing pathways poxB and ackA-pta for glucose. The production of isoamyl acetate from acetyl-CoA by ATF2, ...
Application of metabolic and biochemical engineering techniques to enhance metabolic flux throughput and improve succinate production in Escherichia coli
Using biochemical engineering principles and metabolic engineering tools in tandem can considerably improve process productivity by manipulation of the throughput of certain pathways. Escherichia coli was chosen as the ...
Evaluation of adhesive properties of poly(propylene fumarate) and fabrication of laminated three-dimensional scaffolds for bone tissue engineering
The examination of the adhesive properties of poly(propylene fumarate) (PPF) for application as a hard tissue adhesive and as an adhesive for forming laminated three-dimensional scaffolds for bone tissue engineering was ...
Protein adsorption on tailored oligo(ethylene glycol) surfaces
Unwanted protein adsorption is a problem in many areas of biotechnology and medicine where biological samples contact the surface of a material. This thesis has employed self-assembled monolayers (SAMs) of controlled ...
