BACKGROUND Though n-butanol has been proposed as a potential transportation biofuel, its toxicity often causes oxidative stress in the host microorganism and is considered one of the bottlenecks preventing its efficient mass production. RESULTS To relieve the oxidative stress in the host cell, metallothioneins (MTs), which are known as scavengers for(More)
BACKGROUND N-Butanol has favorable characteristics for use as either an alternative fuel or platform chemical. Bio-based n-butanol production using microbes is an emerging technology that requires further development. Although bio-industrial microbes such as Escherichia coli have been engineered to produce n-butanol, reactive oxygen species (ROS)-mediated(More)
Flagellin has the capacity to activate both Toll-like receptor 5 (TLR5) and Nod-like receptor C4 (NLRC4)/neuronal apoptosis inhibitory protein 5 (NAIP5) inflammasome signaling. We fused E7m (the inactivated E7 of human papillomavirus) to either end of the flagellin protein, and the resulting recombinant flagellin-E7m proteins (rFliCE7m and rE7mFliC) were(More)
