EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

Within all complex biological processes intricate proteins are expressed to complete every niche and necessary task. Many express multiple allosterically regulated conformational states, with protein function regulated by effector molecules and other ligands. One such protein is the LFA-1 surface integrin protein and its inserted domain, the I-domain. We Isolated the I-domain for investigation of determining binding properties and understanding conformational regulations of affinity changes to its target ligand ICAM-1, for further use in chimeric protein switch design. A large change in binding affinity was found through the deletion of a sub-sequence of amino acids in I-domain known as the ...

Elucidating Growth Coupling Of Metabolites In E. Coli And Characterizing Modularity., Preston N. Nicely

EURēCA: Exhibition of Undergraduate Research and Creative Achievement

This project seeks to increase the efficiency of rapid engineering strain design by elucidating the functionality of a modular cell. The modular cell theory insinuates that there exists a baseline cellular framework from which cellular products can be produced by inserting a designed production module into the cell. In this study, recombinant gene cloning techniques were used to design metabolite production modules that focused on increasing the production, titer, and yield of ethanol and lactate within Escherichia coli (E. coli). An auxotrophic chassis cell was created by ModCell2 and multi-objective strain design to determine the genes necessary for deletion. The ...
