Nanoscale operation of a living cell using an atomic force microscope with a nanoneedle.
A tool for performing surgical operations on living cells at nanoscale resolution using atomic force microscopy (AFM) and a modified AFM tip and the force increase during the indentation process was found to be consistent with application of the Hertz model.
Light penetration into cell suspensions of photosynthetic bacteria and relation to hydrogen production
Abstract The penetration of light into a photobioreactor and its relation to hydrogen production were analyzed using a photosynthetic bacterium, Rhodobacter sphaeroides. A photobioreactor composed of
Hydrogen production from tofu wastewater by Rhodobacter sphaeroides immobilized in agar gels
Hydrogen production from the wastewater of tofu factory was examined by using anoxygenic phototrophic bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides immobilized in agar gels. The maximum rate of hydrogen
Efficiency of light energy conversion to hydrogen by the photosynthetic bacterium Rhodobacter sphaeroides
Abstract A photosynthetic bacterium, Rhodobacter sphaeroides 8703, was found to produce hydrogen at a high rate. Efficiency of solar energy conversion to hydrogen by the bacterium was estimated using
Biotechnological hydrogen production" research for efficient light energy conversion
Analysis of the relationship between the penetration of light to photobioreactor and hydrogen production, genetic engineering of photosynthetic bacteria to control the pigment content for making the light penetration easy and genetic manipulation of hydrogenase to enhance the protein expression are described.
Hydrogen production by co-cultures of Lactobacillus and a photosynthetic bacterium, Rhodobacter sphaeroides RV
Hydrogen production with glucose by using co-immobilized cultures of a lactic acid bacterium, Lactobacillus delbrueckii NBRC13953, and a photosynthetic bacterium, Rhodobacter sphaeroides RV, in agar
Accumulation of poly-β-hydroxybutyrate by Rhodobacter sphaeroides on various carbon and nitrogen substrates
Combinations of various carbon and nitrogen substrates were used to study poly-β-hydroxybutyrate accumulation and H2 evolution by Rhodobacter sphaeroides strain RV. The cells evolved hydrogen on
Photoproduction of hydrogen from glucose by a co-culture of a photosynthetic bacterium and Clostridium butyricum
Etude experimentale de la production d'hydrogene a partir du glucose sous irradiation lumineuse par une culture mixte de Clostridium butyricum et Rhodopseudomonas sp. Estimation de la contribution de
Hydrogen production by combining two types of photosynthetic bacteria with different characteristics
Abstract The double-layer photobioreactor using two types of photosynthetic bacteria, Rhodobacter sphaeroides RV and its reduced-pigment mutant, MTP4, was developed for efficient hydrogen production.
Mechanical sensing of the penetration of various nanoneedles into a living cell using atomic force microscopy.
It is considered that the information about the geometry of penetrating material leads to the development of more suitable micro- and nano-materials to insert into a living cell for cell surgery.
