New protein nanobioreactor designed to improve sustainable bioenergy production

Liverpool UK (SPX) Nov 04, 2020
Researchers at the University of Liverpool have unlocked new possibilities for the future development of sustainable, clean bioenergy. The study, published in Nature Communications, shows how bacterial protein ‘cages’ can be reprogrammed as nanoscale bioreactors for hydrogen production. The carboxysome is a specialised bacterial organelle that encapsulates the essential CO2-fixing enzyme R Source: NanoDaily.com New protein nanobioreactor designed to improve sustainable bioenergy production
