Deciphering cyanobacterial phenotypes for fast photoautotrophic growth via isotopically nonstationary metabolic flux analysis

Synechococcus elongatus UTEX 2973 is the fastest growing cyanobacterium characterized to date. Its genome was found to be 99.8% identical to S. elongatus 7942 yet it grows twice as fast. Current genome-to-phenome mapping is still poorly performed for non-model organisms. Even for species with identical genomes, cell phenotypes can be strikingly different. To understand...

Ideal cardiovascular health status and its association with socioeconomic factors in Chinese adults in Shandong, China

Background Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of morbidity and mortality in the world. In 2010, a goal released by the American Heart Association (AHA) Committee focused on the primary reduction in cardiovascular risk. Methods Data collected from 7683 men and 7667 women aged 18–69 years were analyzed. The distribution of ideal cardiovascular health metrics based on...

An ancient Chinese wisdom for metabolic engineering: Yin-Yang

In ancient Chinese philosophy, Yin-Yang describes two contrary forces that are interconnected and interdependent. This concept also holds true in microbial cell factories, where Yin represents energy metabolism in the form of ATP, and Yang represents carbon metabolism. Current biotechnology can effectively edit the microbial genome or introduce novel enzymes to redirect carbon...

Identification of Eggplant mottled dwarf virus in PEQ Hibiscus syriacus plants imported from Australia

In March 2014, leaf chlorotic spots were observed on several plants of Hibiscus syriacus which had been imported from Australia and held in post-entry quarantine (PEQ) in Auckland, New Zealand. Eggplant mottled dwarf virus (EMDV) was identified on the diseased hibiscus, using herbaceous indexing, electron microscopy, serological and molecular techniques. This appears to be the...

Correction: A Peptide of SPARC Interferes with the Interaction between Caspase8 and Bcl2 to Resensitize Chemoresistant Tumors and Enhance Their Regression In Vivo

Photoautotrophic production of D-lactic acid in an engineered cyanobacterium

Background The world faces the challenge to develop sustainable technologies to replace thousands of products that have been generated from fossil fuels. Microbial cell factories serve as promising alternatives for the production of diverse commodity chemicals and biofuels from renewable resources. For example, polylactic acid (PLA) with its biodegradable properties is a...

A Novel Model of Asymptomatic Plasmodium Parasitemia That Recapitulates Elements of the Human Immune Response to Chronic Infection

In humans, immunity to Plasmodium sp. generally takes the form of protection from symptomatic malaria (i.e., 'clinical immunity') rather than infection ('sterilizing immunity'). In contrast, mice infected with Plasmodium develop sterilizing immunity, hindering progress in understanding the mechanistic basis of clinical immunity. Here we present a novel model in which mice...

Elucidation of intrinsic biosynthesis yields using 13C-based metabolism analysis

MicrobesFlux: a web platform for drafting metabolic models from the KEGG database

Background Concurrent with the efforts currently underway in mapping microbial genomes using high-throughput sequencing methods, systems biologists are building metabolic models to characterize and predict cell metabolisms. One of the key steps in building a metabolic model is using multiple databases to collect and assemble essential information about genome-annotations and the...

Integrating Flux Balance Analysis into Kinetic Models to Decipher the Dynamic Metabolism of Shewanella oneidensis MR-1

Shewanella oneidensis MR-1 sequentially utilizes lactate and its waste products (pyruvate and acetate) during batch culture. To decipher MR-1 metabolism, we integrated genome-scale flux balance analysis (FBA) into a multiple-substrate Monod model to perform the dynamic flux balance analysis (dFBA). The dFBA employed a static optimization approach (SOA) by dividing the batch time...

Growth Inhibition of Malignant Melanoma by Intermediate Frequency Alternating Electric Fields, and the Underlying Mechanisms

OBJECTIVE: This study investigated the antitumour effects of intermediate frequency alternating electric fields (IF-AEF) in a murine melanoma cell line (B16F10) and a mouse tumour model. METHODS: IF-AEF was applied at 100 kHz. Proliferation of B16F10 cells in vitro was assessed by the 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide assay. IF-AEF was applied in vivo...

Statistics-based model for prediction of chemical biosynthesis yield from Saccharomyces cerevisiae

Background The robustness of Saccharomyces cerevisiae in facilitating industrial-scale production of ethanol extends its utilization as a platform to synthesize other metabolites. Metabolic engineering strategies, typically via pathway overexpression and deletion, continue to play a key role for optimizing the conversion efficiency of substrates into the desired products. However...

Presence of Hosta virus X in New Zealand

Leaf mosaic and deformation symptoms were observed on hosta plants (Hosta spp.) in a nursery in Kihikihi in the North Island of New Zealand. The virus associated with these symptoms has been identified as Hosta virus X (HVX), using electron microscopy, mechanical transmission, ELISA and RT-PCR techniques. This is the first report of HVX in New Zealand although this virus is...
