A study was made of the use of cellulase to inhibit biofilm formation by a pathogenic bacterium commonly found in medical implants. A Pseudomonas aeruginosa biofilm was grown on glass slides in a parallel flow chamber for 4 d with glucose as the nutrient source. Biofilm development was assessed by measuring the colony forming units (CFU) and biomass areal(More)
Tobacco plants have the potential to be used for the production of proteins for pharmaceutical applications. This work describes a novel protein recovery strategy where the protein of interest is "tagged" with a histidine sequence, which forms a complex with cobalt ions and surfactant possessing a chelating functionality, such that the protein is recovered(More)
