    • Obstacles for synthesis?

  • Mgfp-5/Mefp-5
    • Hwang, et al
    • 75 aa
    • Obstacles AGK
      • "However, these attempts have failed to express functional and economical mussel adhesive proteins for several reasons, including a highly biased amino acid composition (5 amino acid types comprised �89% of the total amino acids), different codon usage preference between mussel and other expression systems (tRNA utilization problem), and small amount of adhesive produced" - Hwang
      • Presence of fp-5 has adverse effects on cell growth.
    • Positives AGK
      • Known sequence
      • Very adhesive
      • Has a 30% DOPA level, which no other foot protein comes close to
      • From M. galloprovincialis; Very adhesive; Low purification yield (but this last fact may not matter for us?)
  • Mgfp-1
    • Hwang, et al

    • Not very adhesive

New ideas for stickiness from Drew

NEW IDEAS: how do we use conditional stickiness???

  • baby machines??? but reason for it? applications?
  • yeast surface attachement
  • coli background -- non-sticky / non-biofilm forming (indole deficient)
  • attacking diseased cells: low oxygen-induced stickiness
    • quorum sensing stickiness
    • cancer surface markers
  • contact: roy curtis (arizona state) -- salmonella as vaccine platform (have you ever wanted salmonella to stick to things)
  • stickiness as amplifier of rare phenotypes
  • fuel cell (zinc binding)
  • magnetotactic
  • geobacter (metal pilus -- iron oxide)
  • benign (neutral) biocoating for medical grade stuff
  • self-assembling bacteria (form 3d structure)
  • micron scale assembly (M13 phage factories...)
  • spatial polarity? (bacteria -- old poles and new poles!) markers?
    • yeast-- bud scar?
    • M13 easy
  • photogluing: 3D printing (what to use for?)
  • checkpoint driven stickiness: (cell cycle synchronization)
  • sticks to arterial plaque and eats it  :)
  • competant bacteria (snarfs up and integrates environmental DNA)
