1. Fighting Biofilm Formation

    Fighting Biofilm Formation
    Biofilm consists of bacterial colonies that excrete a sticky organic texture. The colonies form when a thin layer of microorganisms and proteins adhere to a surface. They may appear as a slimy film on poorly maintained poolsides, river rocks, dishes, and countertops or, in smaller forms, may be invisible to the eye. Biofilm Formation Specifically, biofilms form when groups of...
  2. Mitomycin C Applications in Life Sciences

    Mitomycin C Applications in Life Sciences
    Mitomycin C (C15H18N4O5) is a chemical product derived from Streptomyces caespitosus, an actinobacteria species. It appears as a blue-violet crystal or powder at room temperature. The product is soluble in water and rapidly degrades in acidic preparations. Healthcare researchers and scientists have studied and applied mitomycin C in cancer treatment for its antitumor properties. Mitomycin has become a popular chemotherapeutic...

    Diaphorase Enzymes - What are they?
    Diaphorase enzymes are a class of dehydrogenase enzymes that catalyze reactions involving the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide cofactors. Two specific members of this enzyme class, denoted as NADH diaphorase and NADPH diaphorase, are responsible for dehydrogenating the reduced forms of NAD and NADP, respectively. These enzymes, which occur naturally in all animal tissues, were first extracted in pure form by Straub...
