  1. 1. Metabolic engineering of Escherichia coli for direct production of 4-hydroxybutyrate from glucose

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Sussan Alipour; [2020]
    Keywords : Escherichia coli; 4- hydroxybutyrate; 4-HB dehydrogenase; 2-oxoglutarate decarboxylase; metabolic engineering; TCA cycle; Succinyl semialdehyde;

    Abstract : Growing concerns of the negative effects on the environment and dependency of fossil fuelsare major driving forces for finding novel sustainable production pathways for plastic.Metabolic engineering has emerged as a powerful tool to enable microorganisms to producenon-native metabolites.

  2. 2. Kloning, överuttryck och upprening av växtakvaporinet AtSIP1;1 i Escherichia coli

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Johan Zhu; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : Heterologous overexpression of proteins signifies that the encoding gene of a protein in one organism is expressed in another host organism that normally does not have that gene in its genome. In basic biochemical research, this is an important method for studying various protein functions such as activity and interactions in biological processes, as well as obtaining sufficient amounts to determine protein structures.

  3. 3. Overexpression of the plant aquaporin AtSIP2;1 in Escherichia coli

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Examensarbeten i molekylärbiologi

    Author : Hiep Nguyen; [2020]
    Keywords : Biology and Life Sciences;

    Abstract : In molecular biology and biochemistry, it is key to have large amounts of the isolated protein at hand when performing functional and structural studies. Unfortunately, the levels of an individual membrane protein in native tissues is often exceptionally low, making it challenging to purify a sufficient amount. READ MORE

  4. 4. Comparative study of three Fe (III)-ion reducing bacteria gives insights into bioelectricity generation in the MFC technique

    University essay from Högskolan i Skövde/Institutionen för biovetenskap

    Author : Joyanto Mahato; [2020]
    Keywords : Microbial fuel cell; biocatalysts; electron transfer mechanism; gene network; domain composition;

    Abstract : Microbial fuel cell (MFC) technology is a renewable energy source that employs microorganisms as biocatalysts to degrade substrates into electrons and protons, and then transfer the electrons to the anode electrode. Electron transfer rates by microorganisms depend on many factors as well as on their diverse electron transfer mechanisms. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bacterial Display of a Tau-Binding Affibody Construct:Towards Affinity Maturation

    University essay from KTH/Skolan för kemi, bioteknologi och hälsa (CBH)

    Author : Moira Ek; [2020]
    Keywords : Microtubule-associated protein tau; Neurodegenerative disorders; Alzheimer’s disease; Affibody molecules; Affinity maturation; Staphylococcal surface display; Escherichia coli display; Flow cytometry; Cell sorting;

    Abstract : Aggregation of microtubule-associated protein tau is involved in the pathology of several neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease. The affibody TP4 has been shown to inhibit this aggregation process, and its target-binding positions were previously grafted onto a dimeric affibody scaffold, creating the sequestrin seqTP4.
