Cell-Surface display of heterologous proteins: From high-throughput screening to environmental applications

Biotechnology and Bioengineering
Wilfred Chen, George Georgiou


A variety of expression systems for the display of either short peptides or fully folded proteins on E.coli and, to a lesser extent, on Gram-positive bacteria have been developed. The expression of proteins on the surface of microbial cells has proved extremely important for numerous applications ranging from combinatorial library screening and protein engineering, to whole cell biocatalysts and adsorbants for bioremediation purposes.

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
