Production of advanced biofuels in engineered E. coli.

Production of advanced biofuels in engineered E. coli. Curr Opin Chem Biol. 2013 May 6; Authors: Wen M, Bond-Watts BB, Chang MC Abstract Commercial fermentation processes have long taken advantage of the synthetic power of living systems to rapidly and efficiently transform simple carbon sources into complex molecules. In this regard, the ability of yeasts to produce ethanol from glucose at exceptionally high yields has served as a key feature in its use as a fuel, but is also limited by the poor molecular properties of ethanol as a fuel such as high water miscibility and low energy density. Advances in metabolic engineering and synthetic biology allow us to begin constructing new high-flux pathways for production of next generation biofuels that are key to building a sustainable pipeline for liquid transportation fuels.

This study provides insights into the desi gn and development of a multifunctional integration platform based on biomolecules coordinated self‐assembly toward a broad range of biomedical applications. AbstractThere is a real need for new antibiotics against self ‐evolving bacteria. One option is to use biofriendly broad‐spectrum and mechanically tunable antimicrobial hydrogels that can combat multidrug‐resistant microbes. Whilst appealing, there are currently limited options. Herein, broad‐spectrum antimicrobial biometallohydrogels based on the self ‐assembly and local mineralization of Ag+‐coordinated Fmoc...

Authors: Kakiuchi T, Nakayama A, Abe J, Matsuo M Abstract A 13-year-old boy presented to the hospital with a 3-month history of repeated vomiting and abdominal pain. Results of esophagogastroduodenoscopy revealed a diagnosis of eosinophilic gastroenteritis (EGE). We initiated a short-term six-food elimination diet (SFED) and reintroduction therapy over five days. On the third day of SFED, the patient's abdominal symptoms completely disappeared. However, he experienced unbearable abdominal pain six hours after the reintroduction of milk and peanuts. His symptoms remain completely controlled at present after eliminat...

Escherichia coli has carved its niche in the urinary tract with the formation of a formidable matrix called biofilm. This biofilm is not only recalcitrant to the bodys immune system but also resistant to antibacterial agents. Senna siamea (Lam) Irwin and Barneby is a medicinal plant with established antibacterial effect against planktonic cells of many bacteria. An attempt was made herein to...
