Research Project: Renewable, Long-Term, Antimicrobial Surface Treatments Through Dopamine-Mediated Binding of Peptidoglycan Hydrolases

Location: Animal Biosciences and Biotechnology Laboratory

Project Number: 1245-31000-103-05
Project Type: Reimbursable

Start Date: Aug 01, 2012
End Date: Jul 31, 2015

Objective:
Develop the conditions [using dopamine binding technology] to decorate innate surfaces with staphylolytic peptidoglycan hydrolases for use in agriculture and food safety applications, e.g. latex gloves, rubber for milking machines.

Approach:
Collaboration with Israeli scientist who is an expert in dopamine mediated binding. ARS will contribute antimicrobial peptidoglycan hydrolase constructs.
