Overexpression and simple purification of the Thermotoga maritima 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase in Escherichia coli and its application for NADPH regeneration
Background Thermostable enzymes from thermophilic microorganisms are playing more and more important roles in molecular biology R&D and industrial applications. However, over-production of recombinant soluble proteins ...
Nanodispersed DO(3)-phase nanostructures observed in magnetostrictive Fe-19% Ga Galfenol alloys
(American Physical Society, 2008-03-10)
Few nanometer large (<2 nm) inclusions of DO(3)-phase structure have been identified in the A2 matrix of highly magnetostrictive Fe-19% Ga alloys by high-resolution transmission electron microscopy (HRTEM). In addition, ...
