Abstract null null Alginate biopolymers are characterized by favorable properties, of biocompatibility, degradability, and non-toxicity. However, the poor stability properties of alginate have limited its suitability for diverse applications. Recently, click chemistry has generated significant research interest due to its high reaction efficiency, high selectivity for a single product, harmless byproducts, and processing simplicity. Alginate modified using click chemistry enables the production ...

Keratinases are a group of proteases of great industrial significance. To take full advantage of Bacillus species as an inherent superior microbial producer of proteases, we performed the ribosome engineering to improve the keratinase synthesis capacity of the wild-type Bacillus thuringiensis by inducing streptomycin resistance. Mutant Bt(Str-O) was identified as a stable keratinase overproducer. Comparative characterization of the two strains revealed that, although the resistance to Streptomyc...

In line with the prevailing global interest in value extraction from biomass waste streams, the current study explored the technical feasibility of valorizing waste apple pomace (WAP) to produce high-value biochemicals of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (HMF), lactic acid, and xylitol. Technical feasibility was demonstrated via a process simulation study that employed experimental data and incorporated previously reported approaches in the literature. Economic and environmental performances of the WAP b...

Protein/peptide-based hydrogel biomaterial inks with the ability to incorporate various cells and mimic the extracellular matrix’s function are promising candidates for 3D printing and biomaterials engineering. This is because proteins contain multiple functional groups as reactive sites for enzymatic, chemical modification or physical gelation or cross-linking, which is essential for the filament formation and printing processes in general. The primary mechanism in the protein gelation process ...

Abstract This study aims to investigate the oxidative degradation of chitosan to produce chitooligosaccharides (CHOS) as a potential bioagent for biomaterials engineering. CHOS was produced via microwaved-assisted oxidative degradation of chitosan by using hydrogen peroxide in an acidic aqueous solution. The effects of the H2O2 concentration, reaction time, microwave power, and reaction temperature on the degradation of chitosan were investigated. Following optimization of these parameters, thre...

Hydroxyapatite (HA) and HA-based nanocomposites have been recognized as ideal biomaterials in hard tissue engineering because of their compositional similarity to bioapatite. However, the traditional HA-based nanocomposites fabrication techniques still limit the utilization of HA in bone, cartilage, dental, applications, and other fields. In recent years, three-dimensional (3D) printing has been shown to provide a fast, precise, controllable, and scalable fabrication approach for the synthesis o...
