RENEWABLE, LONG-TERM, ANTIMICROBIAL SURFACE TREATMENTS THROUGH DOPAMINE-MEDIATED BINDING OF PEPTIDOGLYCAN HYDROLASES
Animal Biosciences and Biotechnology Laboratory
Project Number: 1245-31000-103-05
Start Date: Aug 01, 2012
End Date: Jul 31, 2015
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.
Collaboration with Israeli scientist who is an expert in dopamine mediated binding. ARS will contribute antimicrobial peptidoglycan hydrolase constructs.
