Simmons Colloids and Surfaces B: Biointerfaces 2012, 89 152-160 The ability of biofilms to withstand chemical and physical extremes gives them the potential to be developed as robust biocatalysts. Critical to this issue is their … Read more

Goss ChemBioChem 2011, 12 (9) 1391-1395 Biofilm, friend not foe: Single species biofilms can be engineered to form robust biocatalysts with greater catalytic activity and significantly improved catalytic longevity than purified and immobilised enzymes. We … Read more
Michael Winn ; Rebecca J. M. Goss ; Ken-ichi Kimura ; Timothy D. H. Bugg Nat Prod Rep 2010, 27 279-304 The quest for new antibiotics, especially those with activity against Gram-negative bacteria, is urgent; however, very few new antibiotics have been marketed in the last 40 years, with this limited number falling into only four new structural classes. … Read more

Goss Bioorg Med Chem Lett 2008, 18 (16) 4508-4510 A one-pot biotransformation for the generation of a series of l-aminotryptophans using a readily prepared protein extract containing tryptophan synthase is reported. The extract exhibits remarkable stability upon freeze-drying, and may … Read more
