Photosynthetic Energy Conversion: Hydrogen Photoproduction by Natural and Biomimetic Means by Suleyman I. Allakhverdiev( Book )

1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Both the natural and biomimetic photosynthetic processes are efficient and cost-effective for water splitting, and H2 formation. The actual photo-production of hydrogen will have to be carried out in a sealed photobioreactor, and also requires careful reactor designs (Tsygankov et al., 2002) for the substantial improvements of hydrogen production rates and yields. A prerequisite challenge is to improve current systems at the biochemical level so that they can clearly generate hydrogen at a rate and approach the 10% energy efficiency, which has been already surpassed in photoelectrical systems (Shah et al., 1999; Gratzel, 2001). Currently and in near future, researchers could focus on increasing the O2-tolerance of [FeFe]-hydrogenases and the use of immobilized microbial cultures to reach this target, as these methods are promising. Reduced antenna size and increased PQ pool, decreased PSI cyclic electron transport as well as enhanced resistance to environmental stress conditions should be considered for the improvement of photohydrogen production. These studies will guide further molecular engineering research aimed at improving the efficiency of hydrogen bioproduction. Thus, research is also needed to understand the diversity and capacity of natural hydrogen production systems and optimize their utilization in H 2 production processes
Functional self-assembling peptide nanofiber hydrogel for peripheral nerve regeneration( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract Peripheral nerves are fragile and easily damaged, usually resulting in nervous tissue loss, motor and sensory function loss. Advances in neuroscience and engineering have been significantly contributing to bridge the damage nerve and create permissive environment for axonal regrowth across lesions. We have successfully designed two self-assembling peptides by modifying RADA 16-I with two functional motifs IKVAV and RGD. Nanofiber hydrogel formed when combing the two neutral solutions together, defined as RADA 16-Mix that overcomes the main drawback of RADA16-I associated with low pH. In the present study, we transplanted the RADA 16-Mix hydrogel into the transected rat sciatic nerve gap and effect on axonal regeneration was examined and compared with the traditional RADA16-I hydrogel. The regenerated nerves were found to grow along the walls of the large cavities formed in the graft of RADA16-I hydrogel, while the nerves grew into the RADA 16-Mix hydrogel toward distal position. RADA 16-Mix hydrogel induced more axons regeneration and Schwann cells immigration than RADA16-I hydrogel, resulting in better functional recovery as determined by the gait-stance duration percentage and the formation of new neuromuscular junction structures. Therefore, our results indicated that the functional SAP RADA16-Mix nanofibrous hydrogel provided a better environment for peripheral nerve regeneration than RADA16-I hydrogel and could be potentially used in peripheral nerve injury repair
