Diatoms are eukaryotic microalgae that contain genes from various sources, including bacteria and the secondary endosymbiotic host. Due to this unique combination of genes, diatoms are taxonomically and functionally distinct from other algae and vascular plants and confer novel metabolic capabilities. Based on the genome annotation, we performed a(More)
Phototrophs are attractive candidates for commercial lipid production. Lipid biosynthetic pathways in these organisms have been largely characterized but the mechanisms partitioning resources toward storage lipids are poorly understood. One promising strategy to study and enhance biomass lipid bioproduction in oleaginous microorganisms is to combine(More)
The model cyanobacterium, Synechococcus elongatus PCC 7942, is a genetically tractable obligate phototroph that is being developed for the bioproduction of high-value chemicals. Genome-scale models (GEMs) have been successfully used to assess and engineer cellular metabolism; however, GEMs of phototrophic metabolism have been limited by the lack of(More)
While many antibody therapeutics are formulated at low concentration (~10-20 mg/mL) for intravenous administration, high concentration (> 100 mg/mL) formulations may be required for subcutaneous delivery in certain clinical indications. For such high concentration formulations, product color is more apparent due to the higher molecular density across a(More)
The temperature dependence of biological processes has been studied at the levels of individual biochemical reactions and organism physiology (e.g., basal metabolic rates) but has not been examined at the metabolic network level. Here, we used a systems biology approach to characterize the temperature dependency of the human red blood cell (RBC) metabolic(More)
