Taming Antibiotics
TechnologyAmphotericin B (AmpB) is a potent antifungal drug but is also highly toxic tomammals. The specificity of its cell killing depends, significantly, on its monomervs. the aggregate state. Specifically, AmpB aggregates tend to rupture membranesindiscriminately, like detergents, while the corresponding monomers sequesterergosterol (a sterol fo...

Proposal for a THz Spectroscopic Sensor Based on Semiconductor Quantum Cascade Lasers
SUMMARY There are a number of different types of laser based chemical sensors that can sense the absorption or refractive index of an analyte at a single or range of frequencies. Absorption spectroscopy is most common for gas sensing. Chemicals in condensed and liquid phases are sensed using evanescent-wave techniques that provide sensitive detecti...

Acid-resistant, Thermally Stable Polysaccharide Lyase
SUMMARY A major concern in food production is to avoid contamination with pathogenic bacteria, which can occur at almost any stage of food processing. Common pathogenic bacteria of concern include Campylobacter species, Listeria monocytogenes, Salmonella enteritidis, Escherichia coli, and Vibrio parahaemolyticus. Various strategies have been explor...
