BPN343: MEMS Biopolymer: Surface Electrophoresis with Functionalized Bilayer Lipid Membranes for Sample Preparation

Project ID BPN343
Website
Start Date Mon 2006-Feb-06 13:35:17
Last Updated Tue 2008-Aug-12 16:56:31
Abstract The goal of this project is to develop a robust, reusable, and automated micro-fluidic platform for the manipulation and use of integral membrane proteins and membrane associated proteins. In particular, the goal will be to use an artificially assembled phospholipid bi-layer membrane as an armature for engineered integral membrane proteins, such as alpha-hemolysin (a virulence factor responsible for the lysis of red blood cells). This functionalized membrane will be tested as an active “filtration” element in a sample preparation system, as a stand alone sensing platform with integrated electronics, and as a tool for examining cellular processes at the occurring at or near the membrane.
