Thermodynamic insight into viral infections 2: empirical formulas, molecular compositions and thermodynamic properties of SARS, MERS and SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) viruses
The current situation with the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic indicates the importance of new approaches in vaccine design. In order to design new attenuated vaccines, to decrease virulence of virus wild types, it is important to ...
A thermodynamic insight into viral infections: do viruses in a lytic cycle hijack cell metabolism due to their low Gibbs energy?
After adsorption and penetration, a virus hijacks a cell's metabolic machinery and uses it as a medium for its reproduction and growth through multiplication. Growth is competitive, since the same precursors and machinery ...
Thermodynamic properties of microorganisms: determination and analysis of enthalpy, entropy, and Gibbs free energy of biomass, cells and colonies of 32 microorganism species
(Cell Press, 2019)
Thermodynamic analysis is an important part of chemical engineering. However, its application in biotechnology has been hampered by lack of data on thermodynamic properties of microorganism biomass. In this paper, a review ...
