Surprisingly, the answer is yes. In 2012 Tanizawa et al published a paper titled Microorganism mediated synthesis of reduced graphene oxide films. The gist of it is that most of the steps (including the structuring of the graphene sheet) were carried out with chemical synthesis, but a final reduction step from graphene oxide to graphene was carried out using ...

Miroux and Walker (1996) Over-production of Proteins in Escherichia coli: Mutant Hosts that Allow Synthesis of some Membrane Proteins and Globular Proteins at High Levels. J Mol Biol. 260: 289–298 The authors report on problems of over-expressing membrane proteins in E. coli using a T7 (pET) system. They isolate mutant strains which show improved levels ...

Heat shock proteins - HSP70 and HSP30. You may also have ribosomal subunits as well.

According to the 2012 iGEM Kyoto team: The Twin Arginate Translocation pathway(TAT) is [an endogenous] secretion system in E.coli. This system can carry proteins that have torA signal amino acid sequences at N terminal. TatA, TatB, TatC and TatD compose Tat complex on inner membrane. Tat complex recognizes torA signal peptide and then it transports ...

Welcome to Biology.SE Your question stems from the confusion between measuring a recombination rate and the actual recombination rate. In the A/A, B/B individuals you describe, recombinations still occur. Those recombination just don't affect linkage disequilibrium between the Aa and the Bb loci as there is no variance at those loci in the individuals you ...

There is at least one known case where both the DNA and RNA versions of the same aptamer sequence bind the same target (Lauhon and Szostak, 1995). But you can't generalize this, there are two differences in structure between RNA and DNA, the Uracil/Thymine change and the missing 2'-OH in DNA. Those differences can affect the binding and overall structure of ...

Urnov et al. are trying to effect gene therapy - where a mutation causing a genetic form of severe combined immunideficiency (SCID) (also known as the bubble boy syndrome). Affected SCID patients can have little to no immunity to infection what so ever. SCID in this case is caused by a single site mutation in the IL2R-gamma gene. Their method is to use a ...
