Bioconversion of methane to C-4 carboxylic acids using carbon flux through acetyl-CoA in engineered Methylomicrobium buryatense 5GB1C.

Methane, the primary component of natural gas, is the second most abundant greenhouse gas (GHG) and contributes significantly to climate change. The conversion of methane to industrial platform chemicals provides an attractive opportunity to decrease GHG emissions and utilize this inexpensive and abundantly available gas as a carbon feedstock. While technologies exist for chemical conversion of methane to liquid fuels, the technical complexity of these processes mandate high capital expenditure, large-scale...

Programming Biomaterial Interactions Using Engineered Living Cells.

We have developed a biomaterials interface that allows the properties of a functionalized surface to be controlled by a population of genetically engineered bacteria. This interface was engineered by linking a genetically modified E. coli strain with a chemically functionalized surface. Critically, the E. coli was engineered to upregulate the production of biotin when induced by a small signaling molecule. This biotin would then interact with the functionalized surface to modulate the surface's binding dyna...

Engineered Models of Metastasis with Application to Study Cancer Biomechanics.

Three-dimensional complex biomechanical interactions occur from the initial steps of tumor formation to the later phases of cancer metastasis. Conventional monolayer cultures cannot recapitulate the complex microenvironment and chemical and mechanical cues that tumor cells experience during their metastatic journey, nor the complexity of their interactions with other, noncancerous cells. As alternative approaches, various engineered models have been developed to recapitulate specific features of each step o...

Neuronal Calcium Recording with an Engineered TEV Protease.

Technologies for measuring the transient Ca spikes that accompany neural signaling have revolutionized our understanding of the brain. Nevertheless, microscopic visualization of Ca spikes on the timescale of neural activity across large brain regions or in thick specimens remains a significant challenge. The recent development of stable integrators of Ca, instead of transient reporters, provides an avenue to investigate neural signaling in otherwise challenging systems. Here we describe an engineered Ca-sen...

Biomimetic Engineering of Conductive Curli Protein Films.

Bioelectronic systems derived from peptides and proteins are of particular interest for fabricating novel flexible, biocompatible and bioactive devices. These synthetic or recombinant systems designed for mediating electron transport often mimic the proteinaceous appendages of naturally occurring electroactive bacteria. Drawing inspiration from such conductive proteins with a high content of aromatic residues, we have engineered a fibrous protein scaffold, curli fibers produced by <i>E. coli</i>...

The rise of genetically engineered mouse models of pancreatitis: A review of literature.

Pancreatitis is increasingly recognized as not merely a local inflammation of the pancreas but also a disease with high frequency of systemic sequelae. Current understanding of the cellular mechanisms that trigger it and affect the development of sequelae are limited. Genetically engineered mouse models can be a useful tool to study the pathophysiology of pancreatitis. This article gives an overview of the genetically engineered mouse models that spontaneously develop pancreatitis and discusses those that m...

Generation of genetically-engineered animals using engineered endonucleases.

The key to successful drug discovery and development is to find the most suitable animal model of human diseases for the preclinical studies. The recent emergence of engineered endonucleases is allowing for efficient and precise genome editing, which can be used to develop potentially useful animal models for human diseases. In particular, zinc finger nucleases, transcription activator-like effector nucleases, and the clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeat systems are revolutionizing the g...

Information and communication technologies have become essential and design-effective tools in the global healthcare system. Evidence suggests that information and communication technologies can promote nursing practice and patient satisfaction and quality of care. Competency with information and communication technologies is essential for both nurses and nursing students, and attitudes toward its use and perceived self-efficacy are important for implementation in the workplace. This study aimed to explore ...

Use of eHealth and mHealth technology by persons with multiple sclerosis.

Health communication has evolved substantially over the last few years as the field of electronic health (eHealth) technologies has emerged. It is unknown what demographic and clinical characteristics are associated with use of eHealth technologies in MS. As these technologies are more widely adopted in health settings, it is important that health care providers understand who is using them, and to recognize potential disparities if they exist.

What are we to make of the charge that human biological enhancement technologies are 'unnatural'?

In popular lay discourse, objections to human biological enhancement technologies are sometimes expressed in terms of the charge that they are unnatural. This paper critiques the literal claim that seems to be presented here, namely that such technologies are in some ordinary sense 'unnatural' and that it follows from this they are immoral. Such a conceptual 'nature argument' is unsound. However, the paper contends that this does not mean that the charge of unnaturalness should be dismissed out of hand. Rat...

Recent Progress in Vascular Tissue-Engineered Blood Vessels.

Cardiovascular disease is the number one cause of death in the U.S and results in the loss of approximately one million lives and more than 400 billion U.S. dollars for treatments every year. Recently, tissue engineered blood vessels have been studied and developed as promising replacements for treatment with autologous veins. Here, we summarize the cell sources and methods to make tissue-engineered blood vessels (TEBVs), the recent progress in TEBV related research, and also the recent progress in TEBV rel...

Metabolic engineering of Clostridium acetobutylicum for the production of butyl butyrate.

Butyl butyrate is widely used as a fragrance additive for foods and beverages. The first step in the currently used process is the production of precursors, including butanol and butyrate, from petroleum using chemical catalysts, followed by the conversion of precursors to butyl butyrate by immobilized lipase. In this work, we engineered Clostridium acetobutylicum for the selective, one-step production of butyl butyrate from glucose. C. acetobutylicum ATCC 824, possessing a strong carbon flux that yields bu...

Fn3 proteins engineered to recognize tumor biomarker mesothelin internalize upon binding.

Mesothelin is a cell surface protein that is overexpressed in numerous cancers, including breast, ovarian, lung, liver, and pancreatic tumors. Aberrant expression of mesothelin has been shown to promote tumor progression and metastasis through interaction with established tumor biomarker CA125. Therefore, molecules that specifically bind to mesothelin have potential therapeutic and diagnostic applications. However, no mesothelin-targeting molecules are currently approved for routine clinical use. While anti...

Application of Proteomics Technologies in Oil Palm Research.

Proteomics technologies were first applied in the oil palm research back in 2008. Since proteins are the gene products that are directly correspond to phenotypic traits, proteomic tools hold a strong advantage above other molecular tools to comprehend the biological and molecular mechanisms in the oil palm system. These emerging technologies have been used as non-overlapping tools to link genome-wide transcriptomics and metabolomics-based studies to enhance the oil palm yield and quality through sustainable...

Physiological pressure enhances the formation of tight junctions in engineered and native corneal endothelium.

Cells and tissues are influenced by environmental conditions. In vivo, the corneal endothelium is subjected to hydrostatic intraocular pressure (IOP) and to the hydrokinetic pressure of the moving aqueous humor in the anterior chamber. In this paper, we used a corneal bioreactor to recreate the IOP condition and investigated the effect of the in vivo hydrodynamic environment of corneal endothelial cells on the formation of tight junctions. Native ex vivo corneas and engineered corneal endothelia subjected t...
