Characterization of Membrane Transporters by Heterologous Expression in E. coli and Production of Membrane Vesicles Menaka Ariyaratne1, Lingxiao Ge1, Paul F. Morris1 1Department of Biological Sciences, Bowling Green State University We describe a method for the characterization of proton-driven membrane transporters in membrane vesicle preparations produced by heterologous expression in E. coli and lysis of cells using a French press.
Harvesting Solar Energy by Means of Charge-Separating Nanocrystals and Their Solids Geoffrey Diederich1, Timothy O'Connor1, Pavel Moroz2,3, Erich Kinder1, Elena Kohn2,3, Dimuthu Perera1, Ryan Lorek1, Scott Lambright1, Martene Imboden3, Mikhail Zamkov1,2 1Department of Physics, Bowling Green State University, 2The Center for Photochemical Sciences, Bowling Green State University, 3Department of Chemistry, Bowling Green State University A general strategy for the development of charge-separating semiconductor nanocrystal composites deployable for solar energy production is presented. We show that assembly of donor-acceptor nanocrystal domains in a single nanoparticle geometry gives rise to a photocatalytic function, while bulk-heterojunctions of donor-acceptor nanocrystal films can be used for photovoltaic energy conversion.
