Biosynthesis of anthocyanin in metabolically engineered Escherichia coli
Anthocyanins are water-soluble colored pigments found in terrestrial plants. They are responsible for the red, blue and purple coloration of many flowers, fruits and other plant parts. Anthocyanins have been known to possess ...
Metabolic engineering of Escherichia coli and Saccharomyces cerevisiae to mutasynthesize natural phenylpropanoids and novel analogs
The current dissertation investigated the biosynthesis of natural and unnatural flavonoids using Escherichia coli and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Flavonoids are a diverse group of secondary metabolites found ubiquitously in ...
Recycling acetate for improving flavanones production from Escherichia coli
Acetate is a toxic by-product of glucose metabolism in Escherichia coli. In the present work, endogenous metabolic networks of E. coli were re-designed to improve the autonomous recycling of acetate into acetyl-CoA. In ...
Chemical and Biological Attenuation Methods for Bacterial Mediated Gene Delivery
The development of nonviral vectors for safe and effective gene delivery system is acquiring significant consideration at the present time. Ideally a nonviral vector must overcome the barrier of extracellular milieu, ...
Tissue engineering for cardiovascular regeneration - Stem cells, Biomaterials, and Animal preclinical model
This thesis addresses some approach for tissue engineering in cardiovascular regeneration. Cell source, biomaterials, ex vivo and in vivo assessment are all discussed step by step. This dissertation provides a good ...
Design and analysis: Scaling up of bioreactor towards directed differentiation of human embryonic stem cells
Embryonic stem cells will be an effective tool as a renewable source in regenerative medicine mainly due to their extensive proliferation and ability to differentiate into various lineages of cells. Widespread use of ...
Impairment in the Ubiquitin Proteasome System in hereditary peripheral neuropathies
In several neurodegenerative diseases in which misfolded proteins accumulate there is impairment of the ubiquitin proteasome system (UPS). We tested if a similar disruption of proteostasis occurs in hereditary peripheral ...
Analysis of TGF-mediated dynamics in a system of many coupled nephrons
Previously, Pitman et al. (2002) derived an integral model of the tubuloglomerular feedback system. This integral model (also known as reduced model) describes the fluid flow up the thick ascending limb of a single, ...
Inter-domain regulation of Von Willebrand factor's function: Platelet adhesion, activation and aggregation in blood
Cardiovascular diseases are the primary cause of deaths worldwide and according to the World Health Organization; it is projected to cause the death of about 25 million people by 2030. Multiple factors cause the abnormalities ...
